I use godaddy.com to register most of my domain names. Why, because they are reasonably priced, there is no issue as to who owns the name, and they are reasonably useable … except, it seems that their site is one of the slowest sites I visit. It takes forever to load on a dial up account (I sometimes still use dial up) and a long time to load on high speed.
It seems ironic to me that a site that, when it finally does load, boast fast/reliable hosting for your clients cannot themselves make their site sing. I am waiting as I write this for a page to load in godaddy … not yet … And it isn’t just now, it is a routine issue.
Update: Wow godaddy.com can be impressive. I get home and a nice lady from godaddy has called me to see what they can do to help. I did not return the call because they don’t have a 1-800 number (like most computer folks seem to have these days – that is my other big complaint about them — when something goes wrong I spend a long time on the phone on my dime), but I can suggest that they use the contact form on this site if they would like to chat further. I am impressed that you read my blog, I am even more impressed that you cared enough to call and see if we could work something out. Thank you for that.
Here are some initial suggestions:
I get the picture of Danica plenty fast. To be honest, I’ve never been into fast women, I’d actually like to get to my log in, one of the last things to appear on the page. Once I log in, it takes forever to actually get to the next page, if I even do, and when I go to manage domains, I can make a whole lunch while waiting for it to develop on dial up. On high speed, I can only make a sandwich. And … let you think I’m exaggerating … well maybe, but not by much. It is a really slow site. Send Danica out and she can watch it with me (she’s near the mid-west on occaision). I bet she’d get bored and leave before it was done.
I use CPanels, PHP myadmin, wordpress, drupal, mybb, phpbb, etc. etc. and none of them are as slow as using your main page and my domain management interface.
