If you have a $40/mo. budget for a shared hosting account, I'd recommend moving up to a higher end hosting company as Godaddy is pretty much low budget especially when compared to your price range.

I'd recommend taking a look at, and

HostGator should be on your list of possible candidates, but without more information it is hard to properly suggest a new host.

Lightbulb A Host that fits your requirements

Your requirements that you mentioned:
- “better GUI” / cpanel
- Maximum uptime

Kewlceo is right. I, too, can see that Hostgator fits your requirements well. I deal with them as a customer, as such, I know their offerings quite well. They provide both the above. Unlike most hosts which guarantee uptime for only network, HG guarantees 99.9% uptime for both server and network (shared hosting). You might want to read a mini article I had written in on uptime.

Your Budget : $40/month
HG can even save you some money if you checkout their plans and their price range… you'll know what I mean - they range from $7 - $15... to higher range ones.

Your location : USA/CA.
HG’s datacenter is in Dallas, TX and their office is in Boca Raton, FL

Hoobastank68 is kinda right by saying that “Godaddy is pretty much low budget”.

Good luck.

If you need more than 50GB and max uptime, Godaddy is recommended IMO

While I have never used them myself I have heard that godaddy is pretty bad on the service end of things. I would also look at them as a "low budget host."

I can't remember a time where had 100% supporters. It seems that it always have half of the population loving them...and half despising them.

But, since I haven't used them, I guess I can't judge...

Can someone give more feedback about GoDaddy's hosting?

I'm only after 'low budget' hosting. I just want to know if it is decent enough.

I used GoDaddy's hosting for a few months... I ran into some strange issues that nobody could fix... uploading some php files (from both phpBB and WordPress) via FTP would break my directory structure...

Serving static HTML pages was fine though.

You're really at your own risk when you sign up with GoDaddy... their support can be pretty bad in that nobody knows what to do, it costs you money to call them, whateva.

I also had issues with my little 10 user forum getting SQL errors every other post, didn't have that problem when I moved to 1&1, though I've now discovered some evidence that 1&1 at least "partially" blocks Googlebot...

People will say it again and again, and I myself am hard headed about it, but these huge bargain hosts are pretty terrible. Some people get lucky and sail smoothly, but as soon as something goes wrong you discover just how little they have your back. May The Force be with you should you choose to proceed with GoDaddy, maybe it will work out, maybe you'll need to go on blood pressure medication soon after... don't say you weren't warned... I wish I would have listened!


There are some truly good hosts around that aren't expensive too. The huge amounts of bandwidth and space you "get" with the likes of GoDaddy shouldnt be a sirens song, most folk will never come close to using it. Look at your needs from a realistic point of view and you might find that you can get some truly good hosting without the overwhelming advertised resources for a good price, and the REAL resources still be sufficient.

godaddy is great for domain purchasing as their cpnael for domain is great

but for hosting i wouldn't recommand them and your budget is decent enough so you can get better hosting or maybe a VPS

good luck

With that budget you should go for a reputable host. Also not one at the budget end of the market. Hostgator is reputable but is at the budget end of the market (though not the very low budget end of the market). Look through here at threads that seem to reflect the type of sites you want hosted and the level and type of service you want. If it is for a business you definitely want a business class host. You could look at Dotable, ASO etc etc. Pair don't do conventional cpanel.
