Why I left GoDaddy?
Category : Random Musings , Selling Online
As many of you know I was down for about five days last week as I transitioned from one company to another to host my blogs and my websites. Â I left GoDaddy and moved to Hostgator at theÂ recommendationÂ of Scott Henshaw. Â I already had issues with GoDaddy about how hard it was to work in the C-Panel & FTP.
The main reason I switched 18 URL’s that I own was because of the horrible television and internet ads that GoDaddy felt was necessary to get customers. Â I was watching the Super Bowl with my 11 year old son when the commercial came on with the Model kissing the geek for 18 full seconds as they sucked each other’s faces off. Â My son was disgusted and turned to me and said, “Mom, why do you have Godaddy?” Â Right then and there as a mother, I started the process to start transferring all domains from GoDaddy and free myself of belonging to a company that I felt was promoting porn.
So I am back up and Running with the awesome customer support @hostgator and I could not be more pleased. Â I had the best best best service in the transition even though it took longer than expected. Â Houston who did this websites transfer apologized and said that hostgator had been swamped. Â GOOD FOR HOSTGATOR. Â I know why you were swamped because other people felt the same way about goDaddy. Â Thank you.
So off to start talking about all things from selling online, to selling and listing on eBay and what to look for when you thrift.
I will be doing a few posts this week to catch up before I head to San Jose, California for meetings with eBay and PayPal.
If you are considering a company for your URL or Hosting. I do recommend Hostgator.
Here is a link to their site.Â
