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.
