I have been hosting my WordPress blog on GoDaddy shared hosting for the past year or so.
It isn’t the best service in the world, and their advertisements are sexist (see above), but it is cheap as Hell ($3.99 a month). I eventually decided to pre-pay for a couple years and the price was reduced to $3/month. Supposedly, I could decide to quit the service at anytime and the rest of the time would be pro-rated and returned.
This price buys you service that is somewhat less speedy than other websites in the world, but that is to be expected when it costs significantly less than any other hosting provider (approximately half the amount). The service is bare-bones, but real people call you a couple times a year to remind you that they have 24-hour tech support. They even seem easy to reach and understanding via the phone.
The first six months I was hosted by this provider, the service was quite flaky, and sometimes I couldn’t use my WordPress dashboard or my webpage would be inaccessible. Other times, it was slow as molasses to make either render fully. More recently, the service has sped up considerably due to movement on host servers, which I found that I could complain about speed and be moved about if necessary.
If you don’t really care about your website being the speediest thing on the planet or bells and whistles, GoDaddy is a decent choice for hosting.(0)
