Since on their shared hosting account the database connection speeds are not always the same and therefore, sometimes your pages can load within 1sec and other times it can take up to 10-15sec for a page to load.
The only way I would recommend their hosting is if you go with a virtual dedicated or dedicated server, but that requires know how of running a server for which ever os you want to use and is quite pricey.
BTW Opencart is Free
GoDaddy will refund your unused hosting fees if you ask, so don't hesitate to cancel with them. In my personal experience they are great for domain registration but difficult to use for hosting. Their system is "proprietary" which means it is custom - unlike any other host in the world, so you end up calling their tech support repeatedly to find stuff.DinaB wrote:I don't want slow load times so i may have to cancel my hosting with them. I don't know anything about servers etc, so that's why i'm asking here. I also have a site with 1 & 1. I'm reading that 1&1 offers opencart but people commenting that it's problematic. Not sure what to do...
Arvixe is the official web host for OpenCart, you will not have any issues with them.
Good luck to you!
