GoDaddy – avoid like the plague!!!!!!!!!!
Recently I have been helping a customer of mine to move their services from the american web host GoDaddy. I have to say, after 30 years in IT, I have rarely encountered such a bad service provider. Highway robbery is quite a polite enterprise in comparison. These people take money […]Read More
