I wonder who owns them
Showing up as 4.49

How do you get 1p?
They spam me with emails every day asking me to renew. Their customer support is phone only. I phoned up for them to stop emailing me. I still get emailed everyday. Never again.
the worst customer experience I've had - cold
Can't you move away from them before renewal?

i am totally new to this, so i register a domain name and subscribe for a year does it stay mine for ever. the ideas is that i want to create my own email addresses and use an encryption.
It stays yours so long you pay for it. i think its 0.99 for the first year and 7.98 for the next.
can i move to another provider which is cheaper? names.co.uk were doing .com for few pence recently i think it was 30p something

Can anyone please tell me what comes with the domain. Is email included along with a page to build a website?

For that price I doubt it! You can get it easily enough from elsewhere there if you know what you're doing or if you don't I guess you can buy it from them!

Paragon internet groups cloud/cluster platform seems ok, They have 3 different brands with slightly different pricing/limits, using it via their TSOhost brand to host a few sites after I couldn't be bothered to maintain my own VPS for that purpose anymore.

Owner is a dick. Go with namecheap. I switched to them from godaddy and have had no issues plus their open exchange service is better than the email service at godaddy. But that's just my opinion.
Zolasfoot
So the ad says normally £6.49 for a .co.uk address for 1 year. Even two years ago i paid £7.10 for a 2 year lease for a .co.uk. Also not sure where their hosting is ie. UK or offshore?

I always go with the cheapest providers when buying a domain as I host with a different company. I can save as much as £10 per domain just by researching promo codes and using alternating domain sites. I know that godaddy have a data centre in the Netherlands but I don't know if they host from there.

Not too bothered about the elephants...however I would like customer service to at least TRY and solve my hosting problems rather than always attempt to sell me something. Email via their Godaddy 'workspace' is worse than useless.

Thanks OP. Voted hot. Paid £34.50 and £70 cashback tracked in 5 hours. Tasty £35 profit plus a free server to play with for a year. Appreciated!
All of that, plus the political stance of the owner, plus the sexist stance of the company, etc, etc

There's a big *if* they pay out as well. Would I trust them? Nope.

(ex-godaddy customer)
Unlimited bandwidth, unlimited diskspace...

Danger Will Robinson!

They can't offer that and don't. You use a lot of either of those and they'll force you onto an expensive plan (or delete your site).

99.9% uptime? Except for the "Scheduled maintenance" (read: every piece of downtime).

Finally, they stuff as many sites on to each server as they can. Expect unpredictable (but mostly poor) performance.

There's also a trend for unlimited hosts to close down sites that run forums.
This site should be called 'hotUKpersonalopinions.com'.
I've used goDaddy for years and had no probs. There control panel is the best I've ever used\seen.
The phone and online support is great (although the calls cost a bit) but all in all it's a good hoster and this deal is great.

That's pretty much what I'm beginning to feel. It's less about the quality of the deal than people's preconceptions about the topic, or the retailer. Price doesn't even seem to come into the equation.

Or... You all could use the deal, make £5 profit and use the hosting to make a campaign website against SOPA...

I do agree on one level with you that *maybe* buying hosting with godaddy is supporting SOPA, but then have you ever used or bought a BMW, anything from a diamond jeweler, oil, electronic minerals (which will be in your computer) all of which have funded things much much worse that SOPA.

I suggest the answer is yes, but when I phone or computer comes up as a deal you dont cry conflict minerals do you... no. Probably because it will never effect you, so why should you care.

I think you need to look at things in a different perspective and realise what actually is bad.

Have you actually read SOPA? It will affect anyone who uses the internet. And if you actually had a look at news regarding SOPA and other similar bills you'd see that boycotting has been extremely effective in getting these companies to stop supporting.

Only a problem if your paranoid or get up to dodgy stuff
Educate yourself.

You cannot educate the unwilling or the terminally stupid. People whinge and moan about the EU and bent bananas all day long but turn a blind eye when the truly evil stuff is foisted upon them.

GoDaddy deserves go out of business for what it did. Not surprised at the cold votes here.


Can you not make your point without the childish remark implying anyone who does not agree with your opinion is stupid ?
I agree GoDaddy certainly would not be my first choice of hosting site but i don't have a problem with other people using them and certainly not to the point that there are stupid if they do ..

If you like the internet and how it works you should seriously consider not supporting the companies that support SOPA. You'd be surprised at how much just doing that can do.

GoDaddy was very much pro-SOPA before being forced to backtrack. I wouldn't give it my custom.

If you use this logic I hope you don't buy any from any of the following companies:
- Sony, Phillips, Xerox, Oakley, L'oreal, Ford, D&G, Bose
or use any form of entertainment:
- Sony ent, Viacom, Disney, Nintendo, Warner, EA, Multiple TV networks

The list is huge unfortunately...
Also featured are a lot of major sports brands and some major parent corporations. You need to go and research how company boards work, the guy who ran GD stated how he didn't want to go ahead with the SOPA support, it's the companies board and pressure from other organisations/government bodies that force the companies to support crap like that.

On topic, brilliant deal... I posted the 1.26 one last week! When I posted it there was also an offer on domain privacy at 50% off - not sure if this is still going :)

As far as GD goes, they are the best host by far, never had downtime in 5 years and really fast since they upgraded to their new hosting platform. The only annoyance is the spam you get when renewing (trying to flog you additional services) but this isn't bad once every 24 months!!

Rubbish, they made a business decision, and after it backfired in their face they tried to backtrack. Would not give them my business, ever. There are dozens of extremely reliable companies offering this sort of service.

Wasn't this the company where the CEO was photographed shooting elephants?

great post, i was thinking about setting up a random website for myself for a while, so went for it. Question: how do I best go about building my website? I understand from the comments above that I could host it via http://www.000webhost.com for free. How do I then build a nice and functional website? What are the best (free) tools for this out there?

Sorry for the many questions, but totally inexperienced in this and hoping that somebody here has some useful tips for a first time website builder like me.

Depends on the site you want to make tbh. Most web hosts will allow you to install wordpress onto your site which is blogging software - but can be expanded to handle pretty much anything! I'm not sure if they still do it, but wordpress's official site used to have the option of hosting the blog for you, and allowing you to point your own domain name at it - so your only cost would be the actual domain name.- as I said, not sure if they still do this.
