    i walked meanwhile through some offers and godaddy's basic looked interesting, but also have seen some not quite good comments like this godaddy review and lots of others. Are they justified? (from your experience, if possible)

    godaddy is reliable. I use them and they are reliable. Unlike many others their most of the plans are monthly plans.

    I've never used them, but the reviews I've read is their hosting isn't as good as their domain services. You may have a great service with most of the hosting providers, but its also possible that for whatever reason you'll have a bad experience too. Search for some reviews online as well before you sign up with any one service. Don't look at anything over a year old, because things change too fast for old reviews to mean a lot.

    if you don't mind your site no being inaccessible 4 or 5 days out of each month then use a free host. they do that hoping you will get frustrated and signup for their paid hosting.

    a great example is http://www.sitesled.com/ and http://www.50webs.com/ the absolute worst free hosts are freepages.com and tripod.com freepages.com won't allow the forms to work on your pages until after two months have passed and they only allow you to upload 50 files for free. you have to pay after that.
