Set up a GoDaddy custom domain with your Big Cartel shop

Paul Wexler , New Jersey, USA – Just Stay away from Just Host! – Let me say WOW. This company Just Sells. That is it. NO REFUNDS. Sell you a template, SURE NO PROBLEM. Template doesn’t work or unsupported YOUR PROBLEM. Sell you 4 years hosting SURE NO PROBLEM. Website down YOUR PROBLEM. I WAS TOLD BY THIER MANAGER ” I SHOULD KNOW WHAT HOW TO FIX THE PROBLEMS. BEFORE I PURCHSE FROM THEM.” I should know that the template requires developing software to use. Software that Just Host doesn’t even sell themselves. FOR A TEMPLATE! Folks this is how they treat a customer that paid for 4 years hosting in advance. Along with yearly SEO upgrades. Just stay away from Just Host!
