One of the frequent questions I’m asked is who we recommend for hosting. I was typically reluctant to recommend a hosting company mainly because my experience with hosting was contentious at best. In truth, my experience with hosting at Go Daddy wasn’t much better initially. However, about 4 years ago Go Daddy really picked it up and now I really wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. This review will explain why.
While there are a lot of factors that recommend Go Daddy, the key one for me has been support. Go Daddy has 24 hour, 7 day a week support. In the business of web development you certainly need all the bells and whistles–easy access to MySQL info, easy ability to add things like SSL to your sites, e-mail services, etc. However, nothing trumps the ability to get on the phone with someone who speaks the same native as you and can consistently help you fix things at 3 a.m. in the morning. When I discovered Go Daddy had that going for them…I moved all my URLs to them and never looked back.
