Technically speaking, I would not advise any site which uses php or MySQL to use GoDaddy as a web host. You need only do a quick Google or DuckDuckGo or Bing Search to discover the overwhelming response people feel when using even as simple as WordPress; fails on GoDaddy.
* I've used them, tested them, and would recommend them.
** I'm exploring their services now and will report back at a later time
But again I would still recommend that you do your homework and find what you believe is the right host for you. XenForo uses very few resources and so most of the time your only concern will be in finding a web host which is friendly and stable
Some companies tell you that you get a "free domain name" if you host with them.
USUALLY this is not good as it means THEY own the name not you. You can choose the name but you don't own it.
Then if you want to move on due to poor service they charge you a hefty fee to transfer the name to you - much much more than the name alone would normally cost. It's to block you moving.
So if there is an offer of domain name included/ or free domain name CHECK!
For sure. I do nothing like that. I use Godaddy and while I don't care much for them they are fine for handling my domains and cheap with coupons and codes they send me. Hosting is another issue and for me at Barrett Networks it is all smooth sailing.
I have my own company, not that I'm advertising it (well I am).
But I run my XenForo forum there and it works very, very well.
The prices are pretty cheap too and I, myself, am cPanel certified.
The link is in my signature if you're interested.
However, if you're looking for more established providers,
I believe HostGator is pretty good, though a bit expensive.
But yes, definitely wouldn't recommend Godaddy.
