( wildwestdomains.com ), a reseller domain-related services and products, Domains By Proxy ( domainsbyproxy.com ), a private registration service Starfield Technologies, an advanced software and Internet solutions (including SSL) and Blue Razor Domains, a membership discount registrar.

As an ICANN-accredited domain registrar, Go Daddy has lots of names under management, offers products at prices at less price than the competition and supports them all with world-class 24/7 customer service.

They develop their technology in-house, and do not outsource the support operations. This enables them to provide best support and ensure the advanced and competitively products and services.

NOTE 2020: Godaddy is now offering real dedicated machines (bare metals) called Generation 4, instead of old (retired) virtual dedicated machines

In order to stay globally closed to all worldwide customers, they are using subdomains for a lot of countries (like in.godaddy.com for India or de.godaddy.com for Germany), localizing for their languages.

😠 More like GoAway !
Been with GoDaddy for over 10 years with several accounts and services. Started moving everything out. In all fairness, never had problems with domains and e-mail, but hosting is a different story. Never mind the crappy dashboard and marketing harassement, you just need to host your websites there if you are interested in discovering your own limits. Their customer support, with up to three escalation levels, with push buttons you didn't even know existed in you.

😠 This hosting is a joke. The setup for multiple domains is a night mare. If you're .NET developer, avoid this place at all costs. I setup my own membership and role provider, and go figure, there's basically no way to get it to work, also if you set it up on your main site, then you have to add it to all of the additional domains that you have, because the web.config for the main site overrides all of the sub sites, even if you set allowoverrid=true. The security permission block just about everything, so you can't do anything that requires a trust above the lowest possible setting. The support staff have no clue what they're talking about and shouldn't even be trying to provide support for hosting, and don't even bother trying to get help with code related errors or issues. If you submit a ticket, prepare to wait a few days for any kind of solution, if you ever get one. It'll take 7 or 8 emails back and for to get anywhere, and most of the time you get things that they have copied and pasted form the support forums, as if I haven't already checked there. There are other hosting companies out there, that are a little more expensive, but they work so I'd recommend going with any of those before going with GoDaddy. Once my year is up I'm outta there. Don't forget about all of the "Extra" features that have the "Extra" fees attached to them, like email, what a joke!

😠 godaddy is crazily slow... =( i have been with them for year... initially it was because of the cheap price. but they are really slow.

I am also using their VPS, again... crazily slow. there was a time the Plesk control just blocked and i asked Godaddy support for help. they basic quick response is as usual "there is no problem on the server". and the guy ask me to pay 150USD for assistant. f off...

i m moving away from godaddy for sure... still trying to find a service that is reliable. people said HostGator is good but they dont have Windows Hosting plan ... =(

my recommendation is "stay away from the daddy".
