I dont really view godaddy in a good light. Everyone I talk to seems to be saying its great or its garbage. Which to me means depending on the site you have and the time you spend on it, it could go either way. Plus the website itself looks like junk, it should be more impresive from a design point. They could be a great site for hosting but i cant figure out how they operate at all. The second one you metioned looks to be a great deal and a great host. I could see myself using this host by next year. Thanks for you comment.
If anyone else has any other ideas let me know,
