    Done w/ GoDaddy

    So...

    When I started w/ GoDaddy, they were cheap & accommodating...w/ great support & lots of free features. Now, I'm paying over $150 annually for deluxe Linux hosting; & they are now charging $140 annually for SSL (which I don't currently have). In February, Google is going to stop showing websites in searches that do not have SSL...so I really need to make a move now.

    1) Can anyone offer advice on a good hosting service that offers a lot of space...offers a deluxe (multiple domain) package...has free SSL...& is cheaper (much cheaper, I hope) than GoDaddy?

    2) I have 3 domains & host 3 sites w/ GoDaddy...how difficult a task is it to transfer those domains?

    thanx,


    mf

    I have been really beyond happy with the hosting at SiteGround,. I have their GoGeek package which is a little higher priced than your price at GoDaddy but their next package down would give you everything you need at about the same price. They also have a big discount when you join them (If I recall correctly 50%) and you can sign up for extended periods at that 50% off. The service has been great. The support is beyond anything I have seen with other hosts. SSL is free

    I still have one hosting package at GoDaddy and like you get less happy the longer I am with them. I do plan to move the sites I have hosted there to SiteGround and drop that hosting and also want to move away from them for domain registration but haven't decided who to go for with that. I used to like GoDaddy but not any longer.

    I can't speak for hosting - I've never been happy with anything but self-admining a VPS - but NameCheap are really really good for domains. If you don't want to set up LetsEncrypt for free SSL then NameCheap's SSL products are very well priced, about $10/year or so.

    I wouldn't necessarily use them for hosting. But if they work out cheaper than GoDaddy then you might be quite happy with them.

    They have really good customer support and if you host with them they offer to move your site over for free within 24 hours. They should be able to help you move domains over too.
