It’s been just over two months since I switched to GoDaddy hosting for my blog, and I want to give you an update on how things have been going so far.
When I first announced the switch, a few people weren’t keen on the idea in public and private. Luckily for me, I don’t recall any downtime or outages whatsoever in these two months. The site has been humming along quite well, and I am very happy that I stopped paying $60/month and am now paying under $10/month.
Things have been going so well that I just moved DogWalker.com, another WordPress-based website, to GoDaddy hosting. I wrote about the hosting change on the DogWalker.com blog, and the reception on Facebook, Twitter, and via email has been positive.
The unique situation with DogWalker.com is that there are between 400-500 paying advertisers, and I couldn’t afford to have any downtime and risk getting angry emails. Luckily for me, the switch went off with out much of a hitch. I appreciate the support from GoDaddy’s tech team, as well as Todd Cluff’s management of the transition.
I am considering dropping the VPS all together and moving all of my sites to GoDaddy.
Just as a FYI, I have not been compensated in any way for this nor are there any affiliate links. It is likely that I received good treatment because I have very active websites with tens of thousands of visitors, and I have been a customer for 10 years.
