As long as you are OK using Internet Explorer to access GoDaddy's web site
you should be safe.

I registered a domain, and ran into a problem because the password I tried
to use had non-alpha/non-digit characters.

Their page only dipslays an informative error message if you use IE.

I won't touch them for anything.
