GoDaddy vs. Network Solutions, Keeping it cheap

On September 15, 2008, in Technology, by Mike Waldron

It came time to renew my Internet hosting services recently, and as my side-consulting-business is really dropping off, I wanted to keep hosting expenses as low as possible.  Previously my domains and hosting services were provided by Network Solutions.  I use DNAMail (DSL Extreme’s hosted Exchange service = CHEAP!) for my e-mail, so I really only needed web hosting and a place to park my domains.

I’ve been a loyal customer of NetSol for several years, but with some significant outages in both the hosting and DNS space and lackluster pricing, I figured now would be a good time to make a switch. 

Hosting with Network Solutions was $119 annually (includes a free domain or renewal), which was more than I wanted to spend this year.  I proceeded to head over to GoDaddy.com, transferring both domains and purchasing one year of hosting, all for the low price of $66!  

I’m quite pleased with the services and support offered by GoDaddy.  You can’t beat it for the price.
