First I had just a cPanel account, on a shared account, then as the business got bigger, I've upgraded to a reseller account ...展開
that holds, as of writing, around 30 accounts.
All 30 accounts have excelent performance, let's encrypt (SSL), softaculous (full license, not standard/demo like others), php 7.2.2 (with alot of extensions available), all that you need to achieve for your clients the best loading time.
Lowest loading time was 688ms, tested in chrome inspector (no cache), in the capital of Romania (Bucharest); considering the site has 9 sections on the homepage and it's a Wordpress behind, the results are pretty great.
The support is not the best, had 2 major problems over the past 5 years, both were solved in decent time (2-3 days), considering it was not major for the functionality of the website itself.
The pricing is not the best, but compared to the features, it's more than I expect, considering other local hosting providers offer almost the same at lower prices, but not as stable and high performance servers, or if so, with many limitations (speed disk, entry process, etc.).
Godaddy Linux servers for WordPress hosting are having major problems in 2020. Very sad, the support I got from Godaddy was e...展開
xceptional. Now support call wait times are 30+ minutes and the answer continually is we are working on that without a fix.
Godaddy has been having difficulties with their Linux servers since at least early 2020. They can’t update their PHP software so WordPress sites may not work correctly - including my sites.
First problems appeared in early 2020 when 2 of my new domain names locked up when pointed to a directory folder and they could not be fixed (pending for 6+ months). Was told different estimates multiple times. Now told 2021.
The final straw was when I attempted to setup a new site using the same processes I’ve used 30+ times and it didn’t work. I was told they will fix the issue in 3+ months. Why should I believe Godaddy?
The proposed solution is to buy another Godaddy Linux service in addition to the one I already have and for me to move my sites to the new servers. What happens if that platform stops working?
The issue is trust. Bought a standard WordPress hosting service on a Linux platform. It doesn’t work any more because Godaddy can’t fix it - 9 months so far.
I can’t be the only one having these issues. Be careful. If it happens to you, you were warned.
Total waste of my time. Tickets after tickets.
After website transfer the dns records were not updated.

Stupid answers in support area, they are writing from scripts and don't understand anything.
I've asked for email logs like exim or spamfiltering logs, not possible only on managed VPS (40 euro/month).
Unmanaged VPS will not connect on other servers hosted by them, can connect to the whole world but not with them. Due to "secutiry reasons".
All my request and questions had a single response: not possible, not available, after writing and writing and writing to teach the support basic it.
Webpage not loading on 3 devices (mobile, and desktop 2 different isp).
Support reply: We had no issues, provide a traceroute.
So if you want to feel dumb many times until they win you by number, and you give up just try their services.
