definitely not fly by night!!
feel free to contact me for additional questions or details. I have no vested interest in go daddy. We transfered some domains to them and neglected to finish the process. GoDaddy called us and refunded our $$ for the time period, which spoke highly of their integrity, too. It has always been easy to get quick responses via phone or email from tech or customer service support.
I hope this was the question you were asking...if not, feel free to clarify with me and I'll try to help with some more info!
And the best reason I love them is because their free hosting is such non-invasive ad space ... no pop-ads. Great for property listing urls / websites.
