Many years ago, I began hosting my sites on Godaddy. However, as they became more popular and it’s owner, Bob Parsons began to show his true colors (sexist), I became very dissatisfied paying into his vision. I put off transferring my sites (I have many) to another host because I knew it would be a big job.
When I saw Godaddy’s Superbowl commercial, the writing was on the wall; actually the writing was on the sexy model’s flesh. I decided then that it was time to make the move.
I had to jump a lot of hurdles to make it happen; unlock domains, get authorization codes, redirect dns, change email accounts, and on-and-on. Thankfully, it’s almost complete. There are still a few details to fix, but you should not see any major interruptions from this point on.
My new host is BlueHost. The first thing I noticed is that their Control Panel is much cleaner and easier to work with than Godaddy’s. Also, when I call tech support, there is not a big push to make sales. I’m only into my first week with BlueHost, so there’s no track record yet, but I believe I made the right decision to switch. I’ll let you know in about year if things are still going well with BlueHost.
