I host a blog site http://digitalbhat.com with GoDaddy and found it satisfactory. I recommend this host to all on merit basis and overall experience I had with the service provider.
Inmotion is super great

I just moved there 3 months ago, prices are good. Support is good. And the server is much faster compared to my old one. The guys are casual and not like robots. I wish them much success. I feel at home here. Hope I wont need... More to review this review in future. Less

I have had nothing but issues with GoDaddy. I went with a name I had heard. My website is constantly unavailable, I spend hours on the phone trying to get it fixed. They constantly want money, renew this , you need that. Wh... More en I had to renew my domain names 2 hours on the phone because my card had expired and no one could help me. I am looking to change providers this is way too much of a headache Less
Gone seriously down hill in the last several years

I'd been with inMotion Hosting for 7 years now. They used to have great tech support and very responsive servers. If I had a problem with server speed or email IP addresses they would change/correct things. That ended i... More n the last year or two. Now a shared server is dirt slow and all they have is excuses. It got so bad it would take 30 seconds for a WordPress page to load on the backend (minimal plugins & no customizations). When I complained they just provided lame excuses no solutions. In desperation I hired a professional tech to speed up my site, he said the problem is with the hosting provider, he couldn't do much. He suggested A2 Hosting and the move alone solved ALL my issues! Avoid inMotion! Less

Winner: InMotion Hosting

Bruno Mirchevski Hosting Expert

While InMotion Hosting and GoDaddy offer many of the same types of hosting solutions, they really aren’t in the same league. InMotion consistently out ranks GoDaddy in every measurable category by both the team of HostAdvice experts, and actual customers who have reviewed the companies. While GoDaddy is a very well-known company, they seem to have forgotten that they need to put the quality of their hosting above the quality of their marketing campaign. For all of these reasons, and many others, declaring InMotion the winner in this comparison is a very easy decision.
