I've looked at using CDN for awhile but could not justify the cost. As a consultant for a software game developer, you need l...展开
ots of bandwidth in spurts and then things die off til the next release or update. With Beluga, the ability to have a CDN is now a reality for us. Our users are happy with the speeds. (Some of our games are over 5GB in size). We successfully deployed a release this past week with no complaints of download speeds. That is a first! Best of all, we did it at a price that was affordable to use.
I wish they had better reporting, but you do have the ability to receive logs from them, so that's a good compromise. I've sent in 4 support tickets and most of the time they responded back within 10 minutes or less! SHOCKING.
They charged every month on 20$, even you don't set up your pull zones. Because they required credit card data while creating...展开
an account. Support told me that I selected an automatically charge when I was registered, but I don't find any option in settings how to remove Credit card data or an option how to switch off automatically charges. So seems to they have only one option is to remove an account.
Also they didn't have an FTP data upload service by default, only as additional service with extra payment for this service.
Seems to you have to pay every month minimum 20$ and plus a fee for spent traffic.
I'm designing and building websites for a living and two out of my many clients are on GoDaddy web hosting - one on an entry ...展开
level subscription and the other one on a more upscale option. It is completely impossible to do any work on either of those sites - the server continuously drops out, the uptime is a joke, getting through to their support takes about 60min on average and when getting through all they do is recommend to pay for one of their Wordpress developers or to upgrade the plan. For one of my clients we did upgrade the plan for an additional AU$600 which did absolutely nothing to fix any of the issues. We've had ongoing problems with a cURL 28 error and any fix I had up my sleeve didn't work, then ended up paying for a Wordpress developer via GoDaddy who emailed back after 72 hours saying it's not related to Wordpress or the website itself but to the server (as I had told them many times). GoDaddy then promised to escalate - hadn't heard back after 8 days so called them again today, spent 2.5 hours on the phone to be told it's not a server issue but a Wordpress issue. Back to square one. This company is an absolute joke - a quick google search also showed that many other GoDaddy customers have the cURL 28 error and are being told to pay for a developer - what a scam. Stay away - my clients will be fighting for refunds and moving to different web hosts.
