GoDaddy (or it`s affiliates) is fine for domain names - no problems.
Some people have had problems with GoDaddy`s hosting.
I`ve heard this before, but what kind of problems have people had? I have four sites hosted on GoDaddy (shared hosting) and I`ve never had a problem that wasn`t of my own making. And GoDaddy support has always been able to get me back on track with fast and accurate response. Usually less than an hour by e-mail. The only time I have ever needed to talk to them on the phone was with a domain forwarding issue, and they spent a good 30-minutes with me on the phone trying to get to the root of the problem. The support guy promised a callback when they figured out what was going on. Less than an hour later, the customer service guy called me back to report what he had found. And as per the pattern, it was a problem of my own creation.
