GoDaddy / avoid!!! worse hosting service in the country

GoDaddy has the worse reputation in the industry for domain and hosting services. No matter who I talk to, they view GoDaddy is poor service, mediocre hosting quality, and is quite the scammer with payments. GoDaddy will keep any payment information on file and harvest the information to collect money from you for renewals or orders you have never authorized. They keep charging and charging endlessly whether you approved for it or not and they will automatically go through any payment method you have ever used and charge on that even if it is not related to the purchase of the product in question. With GoDaddy the customer is simply never right. They will never provide refunds and argue endlessly to justify any charges they do. Customer support is so bad it's a joke. At best you get a response back that has no relation to the question you ask. And they go on and on like that so you get nowhere with them.

What the company does is no different than the old AOL guerilla tactics, where a subscription became impossible to cancel. Customers could try even for 1-2 years to cancel their service with AOL and they would simply not do it. GoDaddy is like this. For this reason I don't use this scam company anymore. In addition, a friend of mine who is a web developer had so many problems with GoDaddy he gets nautiated if the name is mentioned. He has canceled hundreds (yes, HUNDREDS) of domains and hosting accounts with GoDaddy and transferred them to another service for the same reasons and experiences I had.

I've tried other hosting companies since, and never once had the bad experiences I had with GoDaddy. GoDaddy is by far the WORSE domain and hosting provider out there and truly on the bottom rung of scammers.

DON'T WASTE TIME AND MONEY ON GODADDY UNLESS YOU WANT YOUR CREDIT CARD TO BE MISUSED!!! YOU WILL NEVER GET ANY SUPPORT OR CUSTOMER RIGHTS IF YOU BUY FROM GODADDY.

    GoDaddy has a long standing reputation as a poor hosting company. I have used the as a domain registrar for years and they do okay in this department. Search around in webmaster forums to quickly discover they have very poor reviews for hosting though. I can't imagine why anyone would pay for them hosting after doing just a few minutes of searching for reviews. Actually, I know why... They package hosting with a hundred other services you don't need during the checkout process and people think, hey, why not just get my hosting done here too. Don't do it. You will have problem after problem if you want to build a site with any demand for features and performance.
