I ask clients to arrange for their own hosting; although I’ll make recommendations if needed. I typically give them an estimate of what it’ll cost them for hosting and domain name registration.

Agree 100% that GoDaddy is terrible. Hard to reach for support, and when you do they’re not very knowledgeable or responsive. And their security appears to be quite lax, given the number of domain-hijackings of sites they host/manage.

I have a “working” area on one of my domains that I use when creating sites – I regularly send clients links to view and approve pages under development.
