I am a big fan of GoDaddy. It's that time of year again when I receive emails saying "your web hosting is expiring, renew now."
The best way to get through this time of year is to hunt down promo codes. I managed to get around $30 off my hosting, which made my day.
I generally prefer to use web hosting companies that keep things simple.
The control panel for GoDaddy is easy to use, and everything is clearly laid out in a logical manner. My only small gripe would be the username and password section. For some reason my web browser has decided it doesn't need to remember my username and password for GoDaddy so I have to look it up every time I want to log in. That aside, I love the convenience of pressing a button to renew my hosting packages all at the same time.
I have a couple of sites hosted with GoDaddy and they have kept me pretty happy for the last 3 years or so. I possibly would consider another hosting company if the conditions were right, but there would have to be a compelling reason to switch over from my current hosting.
p.s. if you want to get 35% off your order here's a special promo code for new orders in 2014:
