I should probably note that downtime was quite limited in my experience as well.
i won't like both of them i go with a new one which offers a lot for me and my business too
I'd say it really depends what your planning on doing. If you are running a small site with barely any traffic and a lot of static content then sure godaddy is fine. If you running more of a dynamic website with a little more traffic then bluehost may be a better alternative. As many have mentioned thought don't limit yourself to just these two hosts!
GoDaddy has the worst control panel out there. They are also a domain registrar who offers hosting as a side line. You should choose a host that puts hosting first.
GoDaddy isn't a hosting company. I don't care if they provide the service. You have much better options out there which are affordable. Get the cheapest HostGator package instead.
thats like Lamborghini vs mini cooper. ridiculous.
I left bluehost when they changed boss, and i found they changed live chat as well
Godaddy was my first web hosting and till now, if they use Cpanel will be better.
HostGator has been a great company for years but we'll see what happens now that they've been bought out by EIG.
Well company like these one fish for customer with overselling "Unlimited Space/Bandwidth" offers and many folks go with them knowing that the serve provider misleads the audience about the resource usage and plies "Hidden TOS" to limit the "Unlimited"!
It seems EIG has been gobbling up alot of hosting companies...
Lots of irate customers during the migration process when they bought Netfirms last year...
Well remember EIG also owns Bluehost so if EIG is a problem for you you may want to avoid Bluehost and Hostgator.
Both are good but i like godaddy most.
That's pretty sad really. Obviously you've not tried many other hosts or only have a static page that's not mission critical.
I guess the godaddy is better than blue host.
Nowadays I see lots of bad replies on EIG so I recommend users to stay away from their hosts if quality service is needed
Well,In my opinion Blue host is best.
I would never use hosting from either of them. I've used Bluehost before. I never will again.
Cpanel features for bluehost is excellent as it supports email server itself than for using google apps
There are many hosts with cPanel, etc.
Blue Host comes with unprofessional support folks who won't stand up for you if you get attacked by DDoS or if one of their employees makes your private tech support logs public.
Do not use Blue Host.
Few times in life is the term "scum" appropriate, but the way I was treated as a customer shows this company is scum.
I personally wouldn't use either. There are much better hosting companies out there
Godaddy is a domain registrar who has a completely crappy control panel and Bluehost is just another EIG company that has been neglected by the new owners.
Go with one of the up and comers,
You'll be happy in the long run.
