Web hosting with godaddy probably a bad idea ever!

Godaddy is famous its domain name registration, but web hosting? probably not a good idea, don’t fall for the low price. Ever since the day godaddy decided to expand its business from domain name registration to webhosting was a bad idea, they’re not expert although they hire someone with expertise on web server still didn’t go well apparently and this is not the first time. Godaddy should have stick with just domain registrar, although they may have make a little more money but now they’re spending more money to fix the problem and soon there will be lawsuit.
