Thank you, Divya! I hope this reaches you.

I would also like to put in an appreciation for GoDaddy to employ such effective customer reps who have good communication and technical skills. In addition, a special mention for the speed of their servers (if that’s the right word to use) – even though it has a 24-48 hours waiting period, my site was active in less than an hour. Yayy!!!

Yep, so now I can say - - MY WEBSITE!!!

-A Happy Customer
