    Default issues with GoDaddy

    Wondering if anyone else is using GoDaddy web hosting and having site/server issues in recent months ?

    In the last 45 days, there has been 3 times when my web-sites (I have a handful of hobby sites) were unavailable, getting basic "site can not be reached" or "time out in connection" errors. These are under my main domain that is hosted by GoDaddy.
    In two past occasions, the issue came about and went away "overnight" after 1-2 days (next day - all seemed ok).
    All 3 cases appeared to crop up on a Saturday.

    At present my sites, can not be accessed since Saturday (today being Tuesday). Both the main account domain nor any of the handful of other sub-domain links are failing.
    ...i.e.: www.Frolin.net is the main, and www.2021TulsaUnion.com and www.SouthTexasRR.com are two of various other domains under the Frolin.Net folders

    I have received emails from various people, in Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas who confirm, they can not access the sites.
    I have had folks try from different service providers, even via SmartPhones using cell data not home Wifi, and can't access = so not my pc or modem.

    Running TraceRT finds multiple clear time-outs after reaching the GoDaddy IP line (see image).

    Talking to GoDaddy, they tell me it's not their side, it's out in the web.
    Talking to my Cable ISP provider, they say it's not their side.
    ...both say they can access the sites (from their desk)

    So this is not Xara but these are Xara pages on my Hosting account, and wanted to see if anyone else is...
    A- using GoDaddy hosting service and having issues ?
    B- using GoDaddy hosting and not having issues ? (and if this, where are you)

    Grasping at straws on this website access issue. Thanks for any tips.

    I cannot load any of your links and we are in New Mexico, right next door.

    Info Re: issues with GoDaddy

    All three of your sites are accessible through my Android phone.
    None are accessible through my PC.

    Probably some CDN pathing is not correct.

    I do not use GoDaddy as I found the cost of adding SSL was over-the-top.

    I can reach all three sites from my PC but they take a long time to load.

    -- They had a couple of global outages a few weeks ago. Check their Twitter feed for current status.
    -- They recently migrated websites to new servers with new IP addresses. They are supposed to have much better security and malware protection.
    -- My hosting IPs were 50... and now they are 160... I had to recheck all my manually-entered domain "Record A" IPs and waited for hours before the websites showed up again. It was not a "seamless" migration as promised.
    -- I agree with Acorn. Godaddy SSL cert prices are outrageous. You can get them from ssls.com and others for a fraction of the price.
    -- Check https://www.whatsmydns.net/ for IPs and propagation status

    Hi Florin, just an update. I tried all three urls and non loaded between FF, Chrome & Edge.

    Strangely though when I run them through "Down for everyone or just me" they all report it's just me !!!

    Intel i7 - 4790K Quad Core + 16 GB Ram + NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1660 Graphics Card + MSI Optix Mag321 Curv monitor
    + Samsung 970 EVO Plus 500GB SSD + 232 GB SSD + 250 GB SSD portable drive + ISP = BT + Web Hosting = TSO Host
