Disgruntled GoDaddy User Says Stay Clear

After some really bad experiences with GoDaddy, a disgruntled user is encouraging people to avoid using them for domain registrations. His web site, [sorry, that link no longer works] claims to be “Exposing the Many Reasons Not to Trust GoDaddy with Your Domain Names”.

Whoever you use for your domain name registration, always make sure they will give you plenty of warning when you need to renew it. One client of ours got no warning from his domain registrar (probably someone other than GoDaddy), and didn’t realize he no longer owned his domain name until his web site disappeared. That can play havoc with your search engine rankings, and is to be avoided at all costs. Domain registration is cheap anyway at about $25/year. It can be a false economy to look for bargain rates.
