Godaddy is the worst hosting platform period. The saying “you get what you pay for never” rang more true. One of my clients has 2 dedicated servers with Godaddy.com Last week, one of the servers went down and never came back. So what does godaddy do? trash the server, delete everything and say, here you go client, here is your brand spanking new server. Happy? OHHH NO!!! You just deleted my entire database with my website. Where did go? Godaddy: uhhhhh, I don’t know, but you have a new server now. Fast forward 2 weeks, server #2 goes down. SAME EXACT THING. Are you kidding me Godaddy? Unreal. I will never send another penny to this company even if they were the last hosting company on earth. Good Bye Godday, your hosting sucks, you suck, your snail speed customer service sucks. I am better off hosting my servers out of my garage. Godaddy is the worst, most unreliable shared hosting, dedicated hosting, VPS hosting, anything hosting in the world. Congratulations!

As a customer you don't have no influence on the management on the bare metal. Poor confuguration, toomany virtual boxes running on one physical server etc.... And don't think about the charges on support when it crashes...who will pay? the customer probably at 60 dollars/hour....?

As a VMware administrator, it's unfortunate that you are dealing with a poorly configured/overworked VM host. More than half of our entire datacenter is running on VMware ESX, and both my linux and windows guests perform adequately. There are cases where I don't VM a server, but a WWW server rarely gets loaded that much. I used to create Windows VMs with 384 RAM, but I soon found that was a little low. I also found a huge difference between using a 2way host and a 4way host. If the guest is dual virtual CPU, and the host is a 2way, then the performance of the VM will be poor. I have rarely seen a need to create a Windows VM with 2 virtual CPUs, and often I achieve much better performance with a single CPU VM. If you have the option, have them set your VM as a single CPU and test it. Your VM should never crash as a result of having too little RAM reserved since it should be able to swap. Of course if we are talking about Microsoft virtualization, then nevermind :). Just my 2 cents. Virtualization is only going to get more prolific and with multicore CPUs, the performance will only get better.
