GoDaddy Down

For hosting consignment websites, we strongly recommend HostDime.  For domain registration, we recommend NameCheap.  For email, we recommend Google Apps.  We have delayed transferring our domain ( over to to NameCheap long enough and only because talking to GoDaddy is a time-suck.

We have seen a variety of issues with GoDaddy’s hosting in the past, from website performance, to website availability issues; to blank email messages and emails getting marked as spam.  We just cannot recommend GoDaddy’s web hosting or email services.

As always, if anyone has any questions, let us know!
