Go Daddy Problem #1: Security IssuesIn a hurry? You can click here to jump to the conclusion or solution.
Go Daddy Sucks. Soon after I became a customer of this web hosting company, I realized that this web hosting provider was the wrong choice. I should never have hosted my WordPress site with this web host. I concluded this when my blog started showing security issues. I immediately downloaded all of my files to my computer and started scanning them. It appeared that all my PHP files had suspicious coding as if they were infected by malware. I cleaned every file and uploaded them by overwriting all the existing ones. Then I checked my error logs. My WordPress version was the latest and my FTP password was very strong. I couldn't find anything that might have caused this problem.
Go Daddy Issue #2: Bad SupportSuddenly, after a few days, the same problem popped up. The RSS feed page of my blog wasn't working. This was strange since I hadn't touched my site at all since the last cleanup. All my files were infected again by the same malware. I complained and submitted a support ticket to the company, explaining everything, but received a response like "We were unable to find any issue on your site, make sure you are not running an outdated version of software" etc. This is the Go Daddy scam.
Many GoDaddy Complaints On The Web.When I started searching for complaints on the Web about this issue, there were many others with the same GoDaddy problem. I did not receive any professional response from the Go Daddy team, even after it was clear that the malware was on their servers. This sucking web host didn't even investigate it. Later I heard that they outsource their support to a third world country. This is the notorious Go Daddy Scam! This was a good reason for me to switch to another better hosting alternative to GoDaddy. These new guys are awesome. Low pricing, cheap domain names, very professional support, an intuitive interface and great scripts. Honestly, I am more than happy with them. Best support in the world. It looks as if all their support representatives are software engineers. No complaints whatsoever! Last but not least they have the lowest customer cancellation rate!
