I myself chose godaddy only for domain registration, cause as I know their main business is as a domain registrar.
And for web hosting, I chose HostGator. And I did sign up for a reseller account with them.

It's all your choice to choose which host provider
There are many reviews about them here. Just do a quick search here on WHT and see what other customers have said for both godaddy and hostgator, so you can decide the best.

You would find the same restrictions on GoDaddy, and if you search for feedback they have pretty much all negative reviews for web hosting side of things. The major difference between them is that GoDaddy has their own control panel, and Hostgator uses cPanel for their shared hosting.

Yeah, cPanel is the main reason to choose host providers
It is the most hosting control panel commonly used in the web hosting industry today.
It is easier for you to hop away from your host provider to another web host using cPanel, because there are so many web hosts using cPanel.
If there is a problem, you can simply “Google” about it or ask here on WHT and you will most certainly find the solution to your cPanel issue from somebody who has come across the same problem.
You will exclusively depend on your host provider, if they use their own hosting control panel that is not commonly used by other host providers. And when you want to switch hosting provider, there will be a lot of adjustments.

One is primarily a web host and the other is a domain registrar.

If I were choosing a new web host, I'd go with hostgator.com

HostGator is well established in the hosting business while GoDaddy is well established in the domain business. I would pick HG.

GoDaddy "attempting" to Host websites is such a joke. HostGator is a much better company.
