[Pro] PHP forms with GoDaddy hosted sites

I am considering moving several websites to GoDaddy hosting but hesitant because I have read that some people have problems with PHP forms when sites are hosted with GoDaddy. Is this still a problem? I don’t want to move these sites and then encounter PHP form issues. Perhaps someone here may have some tips for me.
Thanks.

The biggest tip will be “Don’t do It”.

I’m sure others will explain why. I don’t use php and was hosted with Godaddy I didn’t like the way email works for my site with them so I moved to Dreamhost. Actually a better deal when you have more sites. I still use them for domain registration though.

Thanks for your response Dave, I will look at Dreamhost as well. I also look forward to hearing from other people. Apparently they have a form maker but as I said to the consultant on the phone, I don’t want to use a form maker in my FW.

Why?

What can they offer that you can’t get at many other providers with less hassle, less bombardment with tons of Sales emails, less Hard Sell etc.

Softpress recommend several hosting providers - none of them GD http://www.softpress.com/help/

I am not a GD hater - I use them for Domain Name management etc. - I just wouldn’t host with them. I have little enough hair as it is.

You really cannot beat http://modwest.com or http://a2hosting.com for cheap and cheerful hosting, with standard Apache and PHP and MySQL – no funny stuff. No busty women trying to distract you into buying something you don’t need, either.

Because I find them to be very helpful and efficient and always available on the phone. I have several domains registered with them, some of which are parked that I want to make live, so it would seem to be easier to get a group hosting plan. I’m checking the Softress recommended ones now, but not keen on what I see. I just don’t want any PHP form hassles!

Then don’t use GD!

Just because you have domains registered with them it doesn’t mean you have to Host with them.

Their Domain Management tools actually make it very easy to host them elsewhere and still manage the Registrations etc.

I have at least 30 Domains registered with them - none hosted

Everything about GD is a fine-screen money sieve, designed to part you from your hard-earned for things most hosts don’t charge you for. Being able to call a host is nice, not needing to (because it’s normal, boring, reliable hosting that Just Works™) is even more valuable in my opinion.

Agreed Walter, but if there is a problem is much better to be able to phone and speak with someone who can help. I have been using GD for years for domain registration and always have to watch closely what they are charging and un-tick the things that I don’t want/need.

I have a UK host that’s okay most of the time, but they’re expensive nowadays in comparison to prices I’m seeing elsewhere and getting support is difficult. I’ve stayed with them and probably likely to leave that site with them because it’s in the too hard basket to move. I’d like to find a host where I can get a price for hosting several domains in one package and not have PHP issues.

Have you looked at http://www.ineedwebhosting.co.uk - not only is David Owen an experienced and talented FW user he is a valuable contributor here at FWT.

If you have a server specific problem with FW then he is a s good as it gets.

There aint anybody at GD that even knows what FW is.

And his Pro Multi site hosting is only £125 pa - that is not expensive.
