No Checkered Flag For GoDaddy's Web Hosting

Looks like either Wordpress.org has been hacked, or GoDaddy has, but the two of them aren't speaking to each other. I see that where WordPress had listed GoDaddy as a preferred web-host on Friday night, no longer does so this morning.

Wordpress.org's "Where to Start" page is a Nigerian email spam this morning. [I see they fixed it now!]

GoDaddy can't answer their phones in less than a 6-minute wait. It'a Maaaddddhouse!

Got my money back. I'll give it a go in another couple of weeks. I have no time between now and mid-July.

They don't call 'em the Intartubes for nothing.

That's pegged the suck meter. I wonder which one it is. I'm glad you at least got your money back.
My big plans up to mid-July and beyond are not spontaneously combusting or seizing up with infinite Crazy Joan Heads.

GoDaddy is great for purchasing domains but is notorious for their poor quality/service as hosts.

Hope you succeed in wresting yourself from their clutches.

My hosting device is spectacular and I now register domains thru them as well. Email me if interested.

I use GoDaddy for hosting and quickblogcast.com for posting on BDP and my business website.
For my book's website (yea me!) I still use GoDaddy, but Joomla was installed to make it all purty and flowery and shit.

The folks at GoDaddy are very cool, and usually a big help whenever I need them, so be patient, as it'll pay off.
Then you can post nekkid broads, just like me:)

I have only puchased domain names through GoDaddy. They've always been cool with me...but you don't want to hear that do you? I wouldn't. I would want to hear about someone putting some voodoo on them and hurting them. Well, okay, maybe that's just me.

I'm using the same service Sheri is - so far so excellent! Very helpful when I've asked questions. Of course my main blog doesn't use either domain name I purchased, but if I can find the time (yeah right) I want to set up smugmug as my main site and link it to my blogs... or something like that. LOL.

I couldn't figure out Go Daddy. Way way too much crap on their pages - I didn't have the time or energy to wade through it all. Good luck finding something that works! There are lots of hosts out there - check around.

Oh well, at least that's better than Comcast's "over 24 hours to return a call".

You possess a great blog. Multiple ip hosting is the most current triumphant process in SEM. Multiple domain name hosting allows your internet site to build top quality backlinks from unique ip addresses. This method absolutely assists the particular web site in getting hold of keyword ranking.
