    When I use Drawstring on my laptop's local ASP.NET server with Segoe 9
    points it works fine in writing text on a image I have.

    When using my GoDaddy hosted server, it comes out much smaller at around 6
    points.

    Anyone know why?

    I would guess that the font is not installed on the server so that it
    picks another font that happens to have a lower x-height, and as the
    text is so small you can't easily tell that it's a different font.
