Thank you GoDaddy for the prompt response. I did talk to customer support and open a ticket. When they spoke with the server team they did find that there were some processes running in the background taking up extra memory on the server my website was hosted on. Those were resolved, but the server response still remained a bit slow. I will continue to monitor it, as well as Google webmaster tools, for any improvements in performance.
Thank you for the clarification on the reverse IP lookup, that definitely makes sense.
In closing, there is a large amount of negative publicity on the web about GoDaddy, so when I have problems and begin searching for solutions, much of the information out is surrounded by negatives mentions of your brand. I realize that it is your job to monitor Google alerts and Social Media for reputation monitoring purposes, but I feel like truth always wins out in the end.
If there is not 8,000+ websites hosted on my IP, then why not give an exact number?
If another hosting company has 200 sites per block, but there servers are not as fast, then give us that data as well. Really the problem here is that the only #'s on the web about GoDaddy are coming from upset customers. Every time I go on a forum or blog there are lots of customers posting hard facts, server logs, as well as Google Webmaster Tools screen shots. Then a GoDaddy employee refutes that with generic statements.
I know that my website is making X amount of dollars, I know that it gets X amounts of daily uv's, and that it takes X amount of ms to load an average page. Webmasters live their lives with code and definite numbers, so I feel that it would be in Godaddy's best interest to refute claims not with generic "file a support ticket" statements, but with hard facts. If you hosting is state of the art (which it might well be), then have some impressive facts to back it up.
Your competition certainly is out to take away your market share, and they do so with hard data. Why not launch a website under Godaddy, and then similar sites under your competition? Prove it's worth, and have those screen shots to back it up.
Just my two cents*
