Given all the web work I’m doing I thought I might go to a dedicated server. So I contact my host Dreamhost about it and they said they were full right now and wouldn’t be able to get me a server until after the new year when their datacenter has been expanded.
Now comes the object lesson. I went to Google’s Blog Search and searched for GoDaddy hosting. Comments not so good. A few people liked them, but many had serious problems with them. People had their domains locked. Hosting was considered slow and the config interface bad.
The power of blogs. I trust bloggers opinions better than any other source. GoDaddy got a bad rap from them, so it is out.
So I’m not willing to trust them right now. Especially for a year, which is what I was thinking I’d buy.
If anyone wants to make a suggestion I’m all ears. I love Dreamhost, but if I need it now, I may have to go somewhere else.
