Endurance International Group (EIG) is notorious for buying out web hosts and customers often notice a drop in quality and support. They also own BlueHost. For a full list of EIG hosting companies: https://www.onlinetoolsexpert.com/full-list-of-eig-web-hosting-companies/ See More
GoDaddy haas suckered me in with promotional pricing too many times, and every time I come to regret the purchase as they have a unique talent for introducing fatal flaws into everything they do. The final one which thankfully taught me this lesson was their Microsoft Office365 offering. Many of the valuable features like multi-domain support are locked out, though finding mention of this before the sale is impossible. See More
Peter J. Mello's Experience
There are a number of reasons why GoDaddy is hated and the biggest is probably their support of SOPA. Due to a large public backlash they eventually walked back their support (but left open the possibility of supporting a similar but better worded law in their statement). The backlash was so big even wikipedia moved their domain registrations away from GoDaddy. That was 2012 and I still won't use them, their whole attitude and actions during that time left a very lasting bad impression for many tech people - and they haven't done anything to redeem themselves. I remember when the SOPA business started, I had a few personal domains with GoDaddy that I wasn't using and had almost forgotten about. I called them up to switch (you had to call back then) and I was on hold for almost an hour, finally I got through to a rep and when I said I wanted to switch registrars and why he just let out a huge sigh and proceeded to process my transaction like he had already done something similar hundreds of times that day. Also they have a dominant position mostly due to advertising and name recognition, not due to any standout features or support. See More
