    Hi everyone, happy new year!

    I'm pretty much sold on the idea of yusing GoDaddy for their website service. It includes domain, design, support and SEO for about £80 per year which to me is great value (even if I dont actually "own" the site)

    Just wondering if anyone has had any experience with them at all?

    I use godaddy for hosting on a number of sites ;)

    I also use http://www.000webhost.com which is free but no that brilliant to be honest.

    Godaddy are big in the states. They don't have a good rep.
    Try 123.reg for domain names. Simple to point a domain name at a hosting company of your choice. We have are own servers but you can get cheap shared hosting. Think this forum offers that service. If not we might be able to help out.

    Godaddy hosting is fine - but ANY sitebuilder type interface restricts what you can do with a website and 9 times out of 10 means that your google rankings wont be as good as they should be.

    Decent UK based hosting is cheap - 1and1.co.uk get good reviews but I hate their user interface,. my recommendation would be TSO host.

    That is true Njones
    So many hosting companies out there, some really bad ones and really good ones too. For a basic site godaddy or similar is all you need and will serve you well.

    Thanks for all the replies, I'm looking into using them for their website builder as well. As the package includes SEO surely that will help Google rankings? Obviously there are better options if you spend more money but we're only talking £80 here...
