GoDaddy Hosting is a Steaming Pile of Suck

Just needed to get that off my chest. GoDaddy is the absolute worst web hosting company in the world.

FYI, they don’t host Rumproast.  I’ve been dealing with GoDaddy all day and night trying to get a simple web hosting account set up for one of their existing customers who was moving off of their horrible, horrible WebSite Tonight WYSIWYG platform. Fourteen plus hours later and the new hosting environment still hasn’t been set up and the guy I’m helping has been without email, which he uses for his business, the entire time. Their tech support has no way of telling how long it will take before you will stop seeing the maddening “pending setup” in the admin panel and they can only tell if the account setup failed after a full 24 hours when they receive a notification from the automated system. AAAAARRRRRGGGGGGHHHHH!

Not only do they suck, they make it nearly impossible to escape their vile suckitude and take your domain to a more competent hosting company.

How fortuitous that GoDaddy Hosting is a Steaming Pile of Suck made such a linear block of text!

I’ve used them for all my personal stuff and recommended them for all my clients’ stuff without a problem.  And I’ve always found their CS to be reliable and helpful.  However, I’ve always started from scratch or moved to them from a different hosting service, never migrated anyone within their system, so apples & oranges and all that rot.

Speaking of techno-fail, though, Thunderbird on Win7 is a complete pain in the ass, if you’re trying to use personal domain e-mail.

never migrated anyone within their system

It’s just insane to me that they’ve made in-system migration—and a pretty simple one at that—such a nightmare.

Hey, but those pics of NASCAR babe Danica Patrick littered all over the place sure help calm the savage beast! Vroom vroom!

But how do you really feel, Kevin?

The spouse, aka my resident techno geek, has had us on GoDaddy since not long after we moved here. I think it was the GoDaddy girls, though he swears he doesn’t like women with big breasts. (Uh huh.) As far as I know, he is happy with their service—and has received good (if not very good) tech support. And yeah, the pix of Danica Patrick don’t hurt.

Good luck to you.

I’ve had great luck with Fatcow.

I think you got a lame customer service person tech.—my experience has been good.

This glitch in customer service needs to be pointed out to Danica’s corporate masters.

Their biggest issue is that they use the same DNS for all of their different platforms/servers, so if you’re hosting a site with its own domain and you want to move it to a new platform, you can’t easily flip the DNS.  You have to set up the new plan with a different domain and switch the correct one over after its set up.  The problem is that the first tech person killed the website tonight platform instead of suggesting that they both be run in tandem until the new platform was fully set up. Had I been on that initial call, that probably wouldn’t have happened, but, still, the tech guy should have known better. And eight or nine calls later they couldn’t do a damn thing to rectify the problem.

Guess it’s good I saw this post on the very day I was gonna go ahead and register (NAME REDACTED JUST IN CASE MY IDEA IS WORTH STEALING WHICH I CAN’T IMAGINE IT IS BUT WHO KNOWS).com.

What if you’re just squatting, though? Does the suck come into play even then? Hard to beat $11 a year (I’m not looking for a payday like those cats who went register-happy at the dawn of the internet, just trying to flush out contacts).
