I’ve bought the “Ultimate” shared Linux web hosting plan along with a few domain names from GoDaddy back in February, but since then I’ve had so many problems with them:
• FTP is incredibly slow at times (ex: can take up to 1 min. before it validates my login)
• Absolutely all of the operations done in the control panel are marked as “Pending” once started, until “something somewhere” executes the task (ex: MySQL database backups takes up to 6 hours to be executed, against 10s from phpMyAdmin)
• The response time for some of my hosted websites can can go as high as 15 seconds before it loads the welcoming page.
• Their support team takes me for a retarded noob, while I consider myself as an IT guy and I clearly know how to work up everything that’s in my control.
The reason why I choose GoDaddy is because I heard and read good reviews about it, and I also needed something that would allow me to register .CA domains and have web hosting in the same package/account.
I am kinda sick of them, just last night when I was trying to work on one of my websites, the domain would not load up at all, while the FTP server worked “properly”.
Can someone recommend me and/or share his/her experience with another shared Linux web hosting service in the same price range? (I paid 0 for 1-year Ultimate plan) I don’t care about the support team being dumb, in general all support teams are. Ideally, if it could also support .CA domain names it would be perfect, but it’s not a requirement.
I went on a few review sites, but they are all contradictory, and it’s evident that many reviews are biased or made by specific companies to make their competitors look bad.
Don’t choose godaddy because of http://www.nodaddy.com
As an experienced webmaster I recommend BH web hosting which I’m sure it would work for you and fulfill all your requirements. They have a really great offer for hosting & I have used them for over 4 yrs now, and have never had a single problem with them.
