If you are one of our clients, or have been following me for any length of time, you know that I don’t recommend anyone use GoDaddy for a WordPress site. This is due to very poor, erratic performance and then a tendency, on their part, to blame the customer and try to upsell you to something you don’t need.
If you are using GoDaddy to host your website, then you probably know that they had a huge outage last week where most of their sites and their e-mail accounts went down. It is now unclear whether the blackout was really caused by an anonymous hacker from the Anonymous hacking collective acting independently, since the Anonymous collective denied being involved.
Or, was it due, as is now thought to be the case, to problems caused by GoDaddy’s own infrastructure. Whichever the cause, many businesses lost time and sales by their sites being down and are now considering a move to a new hosting company.
Let us know if you need help with the move.
