GoDaddy

GoDaddy Profile

GoDaddy was founded by Bob Parsons in 1997. It is currently the world’s largest ICANN-accredited registrar on the web and the flagship company of the GoDaddy Group, Inc. It was first known as Jomax Technologies but the company changed its name to GoDaddy in 1999 after a group of employees decided to come up with a more memorable name.

As of 2010, GoDaddy has more than 45 million domains under management. The company offers comprehensive web hosting solutions, web site creation tools, e-commerce tools, secure SSL certificates, personalized email with spam and anti-phishing filtering among others.

GoDaddy boasts of having technology developed in-house, unlike many other web hosting companies that outsource their support operations. This makes it easier for the company to provide 24/7 customer support and this is also reflected in the competitive pricing of their available products and services.

GoDaddy is well known for its success having earned multiple awards and recognition. It has also been known for its racy marketing. In 2005, the company started advertising in the Super Bowl. From that point, GoDaddy has included sports sponsorships in its marketing.

slow transfer rate, ftp disconnects mid-transfer, down very often… just to name a few. i’m cancelling my account.

Just a word of warning, scripts on a hosted GoDaddy site cannot query outside of the GoDaddy network.

I hated GoDaddy! Service sucked, FTP would disconnect mid-upload, most scripts do not work, and slow transfer rate. Out of not knowing any better, I stayed for 2 years. Now, I’m gone!

Since I’ve had service with Go Daddy, they have been almost 100% supportive when I’ve called. The only complaint I have is that they don’t have an 800#. Other than that, most of the time, the people they have working for them are professional and know what they are talking about. I can’t tell you how many times they’ve actually walked me through something step by step.
