Why GoDaddy sucks

Some friends I built a web site for a few years back rang the other day. Firefox and Google Chrome were giving visitors to their site the Big Red Warning.

Like a lot of first-time or otherwise new-to-the-Interweb folks, these friends bought their domain name and hosting services from GoDaddy. They launched their web site and — like a lot of people — pretty much forgot about it.

Until now.

About a month ago, the site got infected with a virus, hence the Big Red Warning.

Go Daddy, of course, who has studiously collected payment on time every time for the last 5 years, had only this to say: We cannot assist you with removing malware from your server.

Sucks to be you.
