How's GoDaddy's hosting plans compared to other hosting companies in terms flexibility (are you allowed to use cPanel?) and reliability (downtime)? I'm considering switching from LunarPages.com because GoDaddy's prices are way more affordable. Any comments on the pro's and con's at GoDaddy?

I only use godaddy for my domain name registration, not hosting. But as far at the domain name goes it has been prefectly fine for me. Not to mention cheap.

Who do you use for hosting? I'm pretty happy with LP but the 3.95 is very tempting. Although I get 400GB bandwidth and a gig storage, which is pretty good for $7.95.

400GB? for $7.95? and godaddy's 25GB for $3.95?

What would be the best option?

Is the service good form LP? Any downtime? No downtime?

Stay with LP because you get a whole loth of bandwith from LP apparently!

4$ saving or a whopping 375 extra bandwith? (economy plan gives you 25GB bandwith)

Hell, i'm gonna check out LP 8)

Just to note to everyone here, because a host claims they can give you 400GB of bandwidth doesn't mean they will turn around and shut your account down for using to much bandwidth...I know...it's confusing...a lot of it has to do with how most hosting companies are run.

Basically though, a host might rent out space in a datacenter, and they get charged for throughput...aka bits/second...if your site transfers a lot of bandwidth for 4 days straight, you might end up costing them too much money, and if they are assholes they will shut your account down.

The other type of typical host is a reseller...like Startlogic.com who resells space from ipowerweb.com but refuses to admit it. They even claim to own their own datacenter, and that they will give you 100GB of bandwidth. Well, they are a bunch of liars and shut my account down because they were overselling their bandwidth...so when my account hit 34GB of 100GB...they *plum* a brick and suspended it, then came back and tried to act like I did something wrong.

Basically, be careful with companies who claim an offer that is too good to be true. Usually anything more than 100GB for $7 is unrealistic and they are banking on the fact that you won't use it...I'd rather pay for it and be able to use it than say I have it but not be able to use it personally.

Just looked it up, LunarPages is the first of the 2 typical types of hosting companies. They rent out space in a datacenter from Mzima Networks (mzima.com) and you pay them for server usage, etc.

I had no bad expierences so far, only for this last occurence and this was a major disruption for all parties.
What kind of bad expierences did you encounter? was it a lot of downtime?
