GoDaddy Hosting Review     [visit site]

The granddaddy of discounted, a la carte web hosting, Go Daddy is at it again, always finding new ways to offer more value for less money. Most recently, they’ve started giving all shared hosting customers access to the Metropolis Hosting Community, a network of software tools and support for creating and maintaining everything from Wikis to blogs to image galleries to games to online stores to ad campaigns to online communities to dynamic content and user interactivity.

Price / Cost Effectiveness
Nobody can beat Go Daddy on price, with shared hosting as low as $3.65 per month. Sure, that only gets you 10 GB of storage and 300 GB of bandwidth, but how much do you really need? One of the hidden drawbacks of so many web hosts is that they give you more than you need and make you pay for it too. With Go Daddy, you pay only for what you need, with the freedom always to upgrade or downscale as you deem necessary. Remember, though, that because GoDaddy is primarily an a la carte web services company, anything not explicitly included in your Go Daddy web hosting package does come at extra cost. The benefit, however, is that you can get it all through them. You’ll never have to look anywhere else for the web services you need.

Customer Service
Friendly and down-to-earth, Go Daddy’s customer support team is always available via telephone (not toll-free) and email.

Control Panel
The control panel included with shared hosting is Go Daddy’s proprietary Simple Control Panel, little more than several links to essential controls. For extra cost, however, they will provide you with your choice of Plesk or cPanel, two of the best around.

Reliability / Data Center
GoDaddy guarantees 99.9% network uptime. They own all their own facilities and use only the best-of-breed in servers, routers, and firewalls. All systems are monitored 24/7 and receive daily backups. The facilities, as well, are staffed with trained and experienced physical security personnel around the clock.
