In the course of supporting thousands of our MyWorks Sync users with their WooCommerce stores, and integrating those stores with QuickBooks, we've had the opportunity to see a pretty large number of hosting companies in action. While some are certainly better than others (and some have made our favorites list - see below) - no web host comes close to presenting the as many issues for our users than GoDaddy has.

Some would think it should be difficult to single out a specific provider as such a problematic host to WooCommerce stores, but the amount of issues/conflicts we've seen on our user's stores hosted on GoDaddy is comparable to no other host. These include:

Inversely, below is a list of web hosts we have seen repeated issues with multiple users - usually in areas of resource availability or server settings that result in poor QuickBooks connections. We would not recommend these web hosts to our users:

  • GoDaddy
  • Wordpress.com (due to the extremely basic hosting control panel, which lacks functionality like the ability to control your database details)
  • BlueHost
  • Media Temple
