Whoever use these services, I consider them to be one of the best on the market today.

Experience:

A friend recommended us Atlantic.Net. We were looking for a service to choose, and we started looking at all the information about the different organizations, and certainly Atlantic.Net took our attention and we decided to opt for the best. We use web servers. It has benefited us a lot. Today we have an excellent platform and it allows us to better serve the customer.

Pros:

It's easy and has excellent services, and a variety of tools.

Cons:

None.

Go for it. Their services is excellent, prompt, and well-priced.

Experience:

We have had previous experience with GoDaddy and decided to trust them with our hosting service. They are a well-known, trusted brand. Initializing service with them was simple, fast and the price was right. They are there for you every step of the way, with customer service that is available, prompt and accurate. We needed a company that was open to working with us how and when we needed; GoDaddy fit the bill. Just Hosting right now, but we are open to using them for other services in the future. They are an excellent company, like set it and go. Seldom a problem, but if there is, it is quickly solved. We can spend time on other things and not worry about their service.

Pros:

Again, they are there every step of the way. No worries about their service. Even a novice can be walked through it.

Cons:

We dislike nothing - needs are met.

Recommendations:

I would highly recommend it.

Experience:

GoDaddy is what I would call a highly efficient service. Before transferring to them we had multiple problems such as poor connectivity or it all just going completely down, poor customer service (very rude), & the list goes on & on. Now that we have GoDaddy we have not experienced any of those problems & it seems like we won’t anytime soon. Whenever someone asks me for a recommendation it’s always GoDaddy! It is our website hosting provider. It’s worked extremely well so far! We get things done faster than ever.

Pros:

It makes the business feel/seem safe and secure. It’s not very complicated either.

Cons:

So far there have been no cons.

Recommendations:

Based on my experience I feel it's worth trying. I feel you would be satisfied if the product offers your company what it needs.

Experience:

I could not get the customer service from my previous application which was very frustrating. I had seen GoDaddy often decided to try it and have been happy ever since. I have the dedicated plan which offers my company the extra I need. GoDaddy has performed as expected and with no problems as yet. You can see benefits of less stress and one less thing to worry about.

Pros:

It’s all inclusive for a great price. It's a great tool because it has everything I need without the hassles.

Cons:

There is nothing I dislike about this product.

Recommendations:

Go for it and don’t think twice. Out of all the hosting services I have researched GoDaddy is the least expensive and offers the most features. I would recommend however that they push up the installation date until after they have completed an expansion of their business if one is being planned.

Experience:

We are currently opening a second location in the Chicago area. Our expansion plans include a more dynamic and physical online presence. Go daddy's flat monthly rate offered an extremely modest price for us to explore this new area of development. From the conversations I have had with my peers, GoDaddy has the power to scale my business as it grows. This selection also solves a common problem in my industry and that is time management. The one click app addresses this problem. The security features in go daddy also addresses a common and consistent concern of every business owner. The 24-hour support is used quite frequently by our staff. We also utilize a feature which allows us to design specific 404 error pages which is hoped to give our developing website a personal touch. One feature we have thankfully not had to utilize is the backup and disaster recovery but just the fact that it exists gives me added peace of mind when I’m locking up to go home each night. As you can imagine these last few months have been very demanding times for our business not only because of the hardware and software changes but the opening of a second location. Through these times I can say the performance of go daddy has made these transitions much less stressful simply because this program has performed flawlessly. Through the learning curve...and make no mistake, there is always a learning curve when installing and hardware or software. The excellent performance of go daddy coupled with the professionalism and technical savvy of their 24-hour support staff has added to my confidence that the changes related to our business expansion will fall into place to ensure greater profitability in the coming years.

Pros:

The fact that it is amazingly user-friendly. This may sound like a simple answer but in the midst of what could be described as occasional chaos, having a well-functioning business tool that is user friendly frees up time that would otherwise be used searching through user manuals and making phone calls to the support center in search of answers, I would easily call this a blessing!

Cons:

The WordPress set up is quite intimidating. They include a skimpy amount of email. They also offer a confusing set of packages, two main web hosting packages divided into three plans. Also, the control panel screens are pretty cluttered with information, links, and hidden menus.

Recommendations:

If you want time for what really matters to you and your company, GoDaddy has all of the tools and takes web hosting to a whole new level!

Experience:

We needed to be up and running within hours and GoDaddy was the only hosting service that had all we needed to get that done. From templates to security, GoDaddy was the best for our organization! Price was great too! Hosting, traffic routing, and payment is used. It was so user friendly that we didn't need to devote our time exclusively to our website. We were able to focus on what matters to us…MUSIC!

Pros:

It is easy to set up, the fees are very low, and security is great!

Cons:

Nothing that I have been made aware of.

Recommendations:

I would highly recommend GoDaddy.

Experience:

We were using a hosting company from India and we had a great deal of trouble with their tech support. Their English was mediocre and their response time to issue was very slow. It could take several days before we heard from them, and weeks to solve the issue. The cost was very high, thousands of dollars per month. Their servers experienced a security breach and we lost 3 of our websites permanently because their backup system failed. GoDaddy offers immediate and expert tech support. They provide daily backup and restore services. The cost is less than $100 per month for the same amount of cloud space we had with our former company. We use the cloud servers for web hosting, as well as email hosting. We also use their domain name service. GoDaddy has performed above and beyond the call of duty. It has benefited us by have minimal downtime for our websites, fast loading speeds and extreme diligence in solving issues. We have very few issues.

Pros:

I like the price, the tech support, and the product offerings.

Cons:

The only thing I dislike is that the tech support staff do not all have the same level of training.

Recommendations:

Do some initial cost comparisons, and know that GoDaddy provides a consistently reliable service as well as a comprehensive functionality.

Experience:

We were having problems with our previous hosting service, and customer service was severely lacking. There were noticeable glitches and downtime, and it was a contact struggle to get timely responses from our previous host. We use their entire suite of products, and full hosting services. We also take advantage of their web development capabilities and consulting. It's increased productivity and functionality overall. Rarely do we need to contact them for customer service, and when we do, the responses are quick and helpful.

Pros:

They're very cost-effective for the range of services that they offer, with very few hiccups or downtime.

Cons:

We really haven't run into anything that couldn't be resolved within a matter of hours--they've been very responsive.

Recommendations:

It’s your choice! Make sure to believe it. There is no better service on the market you could find. So go and don't waste your time with cheap services.

Experience:

The main big problem we had was in a slow ping of hosting servers. And that’s reflected badly on our business. We are an eCommerce company that sells products online so it’s a highly important to have a best ping and speed to provide with the best performance to our customers to make it enjoyable for them to use our online store easy without having any troubles.

Price and quality of their services is the best factor. Customer service is always on the line and resolves any problems really fast. They are always providing us with a good deal and promotions as for the real loyal customer.

Pros:

Price is always beating the competition

Cons:

I can’t imagine any. There aren’t any problems that I have ever had with it.

Recommendations:

None.

Experience:

It offers the cheapest service in the market of hosting. It can get you started with little money. I recommend their services to small companies and Entrepreneurs. It is the preferred choice for countries with no dollar currency (which is my personal case in Venezuela).

If you are the kind of person to find it a bit hard to get your hands in a few dollars, then GoDaddy can definitely help you out. Its marketing campaigns offer enough coupons to get your first domain for free + the cheapest hosting for a whole year. The cheapest sale I have personally got is 12, 18$ one year hosting with control panel + a free .com domain. I use the backups panel, Linux, Control Panel, and CentOS. It has increased our revenue.

Pros:

1) Value - amazing. As everyone probably knows already, GoDaddy is the cheapest for everything most of the time. I signed up my Economy web hosting through an affiliate link and it only cost me $1/mo. For the first year! You will not find anything for this price for the features.

2) Uptime - 99.9%, which is today's industry standard. I've heard some bad things about GoDaddy's uptime when I was researching and before I signed up. But from my own personal experience, I have not had any downtimes at all. None (I use Pingdom to track my site's uptime). Downtime differs from server to server. But I’ve not experienced any downtime. Maybe I'm just lucky.

3) Features - eh… GoDaddy uses "Cpanel" - in other words, their own customized version of Cpanel. If this is your first time signing up for hosting, I do not think you'll care since you will get used to it pretty quickly. I did try the standard Cpanel but I find that I actually liked GoDaddy's version much better. It looks much organized to me and easier to find things.

4) Support - this is the one thing that GoDaddy sucks at. They representatives do not seem to know much about web hosting. As a newbie, I learned most, if not all, about hosting, WP, SQL databases, etc. From Google or YouTube.

Cons:

Nothing
