Recently I set up a web site on GoDaddy. After using Hostgator and similar cPanel web hosting services, I have to say that GoDaddy is much more difficult to navigate and set up. I can create a web site and email accounts on HostGator in my sleep.
GoDaddy requires that you navigate through many screens to do almost anything, with HostGator you can do almost anything you want right from the Control Panel. This picture is the top 2/3's of the Control panel.
