GoDaddy Has Terrible Support…
Their online chat only seems to be open for 5 minutes a day, and if you are lucky to speak to someone online, 100% of the time they will recommend that you ring their customer service center… in Arizona. sorry for the delay… sorry for the delay.. sorry for the aaaaerrrrrrfgfgghhhhhh. “We can’t wait to exceed your expectations” They say whilst putting you on hold for an hour
The control panel is a labyrinth!
I’ve used my fair share of hosts, and even though I won’t say GoDaddy have the worst customer interface I’ve seen – it’s still very confusing. Simple tasks can take an eternity, as you waste time trying to even get to the right page.
GoDaddy Hosting is Slow
Just try hosting a modern site with Godaddy and see where that gets you. The GMMetrix figures and Google PageSpeed figures are abysmal.
IT’S NEVER THEIR FAULT
Just a quick scan of the Godaddy forums and some of Godaddy’s responses serve a reminder that, no matter what the problem.. GoDaddy are not to blame. It’s your website, it’s a plugin your using, it’s because you’re a Libra etc etc etc
Godaddy and WordPress don’t mix!
I get this problem time and time and time again. I move a wordpres site onto a clients Godaddy domain, and 90% of the time, the site will begin to take an eternity to load up, and that’s when it doesn’t come back at me with a 404 error. “It’s the WordPress theme you are using” they tell me. I use only the very best WordPress themes, Avada, X, Bridge. Mmmmmmmmm……
Just look at the number of unhappy customers!
Don’t just take my word for it! Take a look at the Complaints Board!

Trying to unlock your domain for transfer
… There was an error processing your request. Please try again.
Even trying to move away from GoDaddy is a headache. The instructions make is seem simple enough.. Simply enable your site to be transferred. Let me tell you, nothing is every simple with GoDaddy.
“Keep me signed in” means nothing to these people!
Yes, This is probably personal laziness on my part. I use complicated passwords, and it refused to remember them, so every ten minutes I have to look up the password and log in again.
