    I've been using Go Daddy for many years. You can't do better in my opinion.

    I also used to use godaddy.. Yeah it was fine with a huge exception for me. The dang site was super slow for dial up. And to access your .com email without using outlook was near impossible to do in under 30 minutes. The customer side of the site/hosting was flawless though, it was just too slow to manage the site with their site/tools. I also had godaddy servers overload twice on me when Host Monster never failed. If you have anything else besides dialup...godaddy will work good. It is just not my first choice though regardless of connection type. Close 2nd.

    Seems anything on dial-up would be slow..just my opinion though.:nod:

    yes that is correct. Although being on dial up there is different speeds of slow. Being able to get a drink from the fridge before page opens is the "fast" slow. Being able to go the the bathroom and get a drink from the fridge is the "normal" slow. Then you have the slowest of the slow speeds, the type where you begin to see cobwebs developing on your eyeglasses while waiting for the page to load....:laughing:

    The reasons there is a difference in user interface speeds between godaddy and host monster is the type of interface they use. When I used them, godaddy seemed to have a maze to go through to get to the pages to edit your site. Host Monster was about 2 clicks and I was there. Both were very reliable hosts, was only posting my preference and why I chose that one just in case somebody reading this is on dial up like I am.

    One thing godaddy has over host monster is if you buy your domain through godaddy, they do offer free hosting as long as you do not mind an advertisement section at the top. Not very professional looking in my opinion though.

    George,

    i got a guy if you need one,
    he built my site for 400 bucks no hosting fees, yearly fee of 11 bucks i believe.
    great to deal with

    chicagowebworks.com

    i think, might be wrong.

    its all on GoDaddy, which i love.

    Your site must be using the free hosting at godaddy then. Otherwise yearly fee would be more. Free is fine if you do not mind godaddy throwing advertisment at the top. IMO it makes it look cheesy..lol.

    I used to use go daddy but anymore they are not your best choice. There servers run slow especially in the admin area, If you want a brand name vendor I would go to host gator.

    I also have my own webserver and sell hosting for 8.50 a month. I will gladly help you and give you some help with your site as well.
