I've used just about every single WordPress website hosting platform available, and recently switched to WPEngine after five years with GoDaddy Managed WordPress.
GoDaddy just had too many issues with server space, and was super slow, going down too often, and allowing too many "known issues" to take place.
And at one point, GoDaddy even deleted one of my sites for no reason.
The switch to WPEngine has proved to be the right move, among other things, the ability to use back-up points to swap across environments.
