GoDaddy Is A Ripoff

I’ve recently been growing disgusted with GoDaddy. The speed of my Drupal site has slowed significantly, their SSH is a joke with only a few available commands (at least on shared hosting).

But recently this burned me up, I was renewing seven domain names, and without my permission GoDaddy forced me to use the bulk domain registration, which supposedly would save me $1 on domains. Since my order was over $50 I was entitled to use a 20% discount, but because I already had the unrequested bulk discount I was forced to pay more money.

Currently I’m looking for a new host (hopefully I can get $10/month for a couple dozen gigabytes of space) , so any recomendations would be appreciated.
