Fan in training

I'm planning to set up a personal site using ocportal, but do not know which hosting to choose. I initially prefer GoDaddy, but its popularity does not equal to the hosting quality after reading its review at So, can any one tells me it GoDaddy worth trying for small site o earth.

I can't tell you anything about their hosting, but I can tell you about their DNS.

GoDaddy's New "Selective DNS Blackouts" Policy

I experienced this first hand on a client site. DNS would literally go on rolling blackouts in different parts of the world. A site would work in one country, but not another, because GoDaddy was refusing to service DNS requests from a particular country at a particular point.
It happened regularly, until we switched DNS to cloudflare.

This does not exactly give me confidence on the company.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
