My website has been slow for a while now, and I’ve put it down to GoDaddy. It was taking up to 10 seconds just to load a page, no matter where it was. And I don’t like the idea of paying more money to a company whose CEO hunts elephants.
So I have switched over to Bluehost for a year to see how they fair. My domain will still be held by GoDaddy. But so far the results are better, taking a maximum of 5 seconds to load for me.
The people on the phone felt more professional, once they had confirmed by identity, they noticed that I was trying to do that and went ahead and finished it off for me once I gave them permission.
I have heard mixed reviews about them, but with GoDaddy I tend to read more negative than positive.
