I am going to review Godaddy,which is a domain name registrar. 

Godaddy is probably the most popular domain name registrar in the world and it offers alot of addons for your domain name which is great. It also offers web hosting with shared and dedicated servers.
 Saying all this,there are a few things Godaddy can improve on.

1-It should give private domain name registration,which is whois protection,for free with every domain name to it's customers.Currently you have to pay $6.99 extra for private registration for your domain name.If you compare this with another domain name registrar ipowerweb.com,they give you whois protection for free with every domain name.

2-If you join web hosting forums and ask the question on whether you should use godaddy's dedicated servers for advanced web hosting,almost everyone there will tell you not to use godaddy for this because their servers are too complicated to install things on.

Overall I give Godaddy a rating of 5/10. I would have given it 8/10 if it gave it's customers free whois protection with every domain name.

What about all the extra features that Godaddy offers included in your domain registration that ipowerweb doesn't such as a fully featured email service with webmail and 100 email addresses?

I honestly believe Godaddy is a fantastic company, I've certainly never had any issues with them and have register numerous domains for both myself and other and also hostd sites using goaddy and found the whole process very simple.

I use GoDaddy for some of my domains and hosting (simple hosting only) but I am happy with their services...

I've been a GoDaddy customer for a few years now. For the most part they're really good. There's some nice "freebies" when you buy a top level domain.

Web hosting can be a little slow at times, but for sites that generate low traffic it is fine.

Just recently, I had to use their email support for the first time ever, as a folder wouldn't delete from the server.  Response time between the first few emails was about 10 hours, as they send you "help for dummies" replies. After my about my fourth email reply, they took action and the issue was resolved within a couple of hours.

Oh, and, I wish they would upgrade from MySQL 4.0.24.  Yell

Well we all know (if you've watched the Super Bowl ad) that all their staff work in marketing! Smile
