    I'm sorry but I did not understand your problem! Your english is a little confusing.
    All I can say is that also had problems with godaddy and have moved everything away from them (domains and hosting).

    Ah yes. Very well said.

    Don't forget to add that GoDaddy is a great place to buy a domain as well.

    I have been a very happy customer.

    Not many comments on this one, even thought GoDaddy are a large 'respectable' firm providing domains and hosting.

    Seemse they have a huge client base, yet only 2 responses on here? Maybe with the size of their clientell there's hiccups in every business?

    Ok..now I"m dizzy from reading that..lol...I think my universal translater is on the fritz....I THINK what he's saying is that he bought a hosting package and they didn't give him his DNS info or the DNS was not working and he tried to contact support and got nothing but autoresponders and the runaround. Tried to get refund and was told no or not responded to.

    To be honest, I've only got like 5 domains left at GoDaddy, they expire in 2006 and will be moved to my Enom reseller..

    1. I can't figure out what you are trying to say.

    2. You need to be careful what you say about someone. While the 1st Amendment does guarantee free speech, that freedom is not unlimited. Calling godaddy swindler and thieves when thousands of people use this company with good success is very poor judgment. Considering your claim is not well explained in plain english, and probably wouldn't be truly thievery and swindling even if it were, in my opinion could border on libel. (Obviously I'd have to check with a lawyer - so please don't flame me if I'm wrong.)

    3. Their website doesn't claim to give a money back guarantee (at least on the comparison page)

    4. At $3.95 / month you should have been prepared to loose that much when you signed up in the first place. Besides, it isn't all that much to loose, so why complain about it?

    I've used godaddy for years. They are an excellend domain reg company. While I haven't used their hosting, many companies don't offer a refund if you choose to cancel. You chose to sign up. If you don't like it that's your tough luck. Learn from your mistakes and move on.

    I suspect that the original poster, who is likely in Spain, is not too concerned about the 1st Amendment. But your point is taken.

    GoDaddy is an excellent domain registrar. I have had a few bad dealings with them (being double charged, for instance) which weren't resolved, but overall -- the price can't be beat, so I continue to register domains there. I also have a lot of domains with EV1, but as they aren't currently accepting new registrations, GoDaddy is the place that I use.

    In short - GoDaddy should only be used for domain registrations and possibly SSL certs due to their competitive pricing; Don't look into their other services (primarly VPS/Hosting).

    And Cocobcn19; Excellent review/warning. =)

    I would be upset if someone stole ANY money from me. Not agreeing with the dude who started this thread, nor disagreeing. But it's not the money in cases like this, it's the principle!

    I've been a happy customer for a few years now. I've got about 8 domains through them and had a site until a week ago (temporary fix). Although the hosting interface isn't too intuitive for setting up certain things, its still decent, gets the job done, and they've never taken anything from me beyond the advertised price. They've saved time and took a lot of the effort out of things like transfers.

    I, for one, am happy.

    Are you saying you were double charged and it was never resolved?

    Godaddy are evil. Pure evil. I have been with them for a few months and I totally hate them, I would go with a smaller host any day rather than be subjected to their aweful support and profiteering at the expense of users.
    Their Terms of service does not detail ANY of the hidden charges which you will suffer.

    Actually, it seems the guy's point is that they never delivered the service(s) he paid for. A money back guarantee is only for cases where you don't like the service after trying it. If you pay and they refuse / fail to provide the service, that is:

    a. fraud; and
    b. automatic money back with or without an explicit money back guarantee.

    I have some domains registered with them for 2 or 3 years now without any problem. For hosting I would go to a hosting company
