Subject:RE: practicalities of blogging From:Chris Borokowski <athloi -at- yahoo -dot- com> To:poshedly -at- bellsouth -dot- net, steve -at- writersbookmall -dot- com, techwr-l -at- lists -dot- techwr-l -dot- com Date:Mon, 4 Feb 2008 12:09:19 -0800 (PST)
The example I mentioned wasn't specifically related to blogging except
that domain registration can be required for blogging (and is
recommended). However, I think your example fits entirely into my
experience: they're very pleasant about getting new business, but
support (what happens *after* you sign up) is lacking, especially if
you don't fit into one of the common use cases like domain transfers.
I have bounced around the net for years, and while I respect your
experience and insight in evaluating it, for *my* clients I no longer
trust GoDaddy, having seen them take advantage of and victimize the
less than fully computer literate.
As I may have said, about half of the companies out there are train
wrecks which I wish to avoid. It really depends on what you need from
them. However, if you've seen a screwup that exposes bad internal
organization or negligent business practices, you are then less
inclined to think that good experience is anything but chance.
