I've used GoDaddy for hosting web sites and domains for clients since 2007. For the most part, their service is a bargain--especially considering that they have (non-toll-free) telephone technical support that I have used on behalf of my clients for some esoteric "shared hosting" features. I wouldn't touch MySQL with the proverbial 10-foot pole and use SQL Server exclusively.
My only current gripe with GoDaddy is that there is a news story circulating how their wacky CEO (who has altogether way too much emphasis on the racing babes for my taste, but that's a different story) has been off elephant hunting in Africa.
In general, I have moved new clients from other services where their hosting was a true nightmare (anyone care to discuss the incompetent Ukrainian tech support ladies at Network Solutions!?) and rescued domains for clients when outfits like Microsoft were using Melbourne IT (Australia!) which makes regaining control of an "iffy" domain problematic. (Of course, I use SKYPE, so that telephone calls for that effort were fairly economical, despite 20-minute wait queues.)
