Godaddy Gird Service Review

Posted by happyhardik on Jun 13, 2011 in Technology |

I have been a loyal godaddy customer for past three 3years. Being happy with their Share hosting service, real cheap, good uptime, ok support, great features. Than they introduce Grid Service, I was happy to learn about it.

Than one day they moved my website to another server, giving me a lot of pain and I was asked to upgrade to grid hosting to save my self. I did so and now I am in more troubles. My websites take around 1 min to load which was about 3 secs in a shared hosting environment.

I did some load testing with their shared hosting account and my average load time with 10 clients was around 3 sec which increased to 7 secs with 50 clients. With their grid hosting this has gone very high, check the results yourself:

I think its time to move on, they are still in beta as of 13th June 2011, unless they become stable in future.
Right now, if you are thinking of buying a hosting service, do not go for godaddy shared or grid plans as they are not stable, may be it will be after a year or so. Stay tuned for updates.

Update: Godaddy have been improving the performance of the Grid and we see some real results. But yet not satisfying! You will find your site to be slow or down during peak hours.
