Go Daddy Review

I wouldn’d use GoDaddy.com as a hosting company. Their prices are OK, however they do not offer the features like those you get with HostPapa or HostGator. Furthermore, if you want cPanel, and trust me you do want cPanel with your hosting plan, then with GoDaddy.com you’ll have to pay for it.  This is the exact response i received from their support staff  regarding the availability of cPanel and their hosting plans:

“Thank you for contacting Customer Support. If your hosting plan is either Linux or Windows shared hosting, we do not use cpanel. We do offer cpanel as an option on dedicated or virtual dedicated servers, with a linux OS only. Cpanel on a server adds $9.99/month for virtual dedicated and $39.99 for dedicated.”   – December 12, 2009

Now I have to say that GoDaddy’s customer service is great – quick and professional, but their hosting is not competitive to many other hosting companies out there.  I do recommend GoDaddy for domain name registration however. They offer great deals on domain names and becasue of their customer service I put them on top of my list as a Domain Name Registrar.
