Boycott GoDaddy's Elephant-Killing CEO & transfer out!

Postby dyn » Thu Mar 31, 2011 22:19 UTC

I always hated GoDaddy, not only because they suspended domain names based on idiotic complaints, which is bad enough in itself -- imagine, in the co-called "land of the free speech" they play some kind of authority on who will keep domain name or not, authority they don't even have legally. No, i hated them for no particular reason, i always had that feeling about them, like when you see some people and you know they are not to be trusted. Now they managed to sink to a new low, check it out:

Namecheap (we use them for vogonhq.com) offers cheap transfers of your domains:
It's not often that we would disagree publicly with a competitor, but we at Namecheap are very disturbed by this video of a competitor killing an elephant for sport. Check out the ABC News Report (Warning: Very Graphic!)

We've decided to throw our support behind our Elephant friends by offering domain transfers at a price where we actually lose money.

Show your protest by saying BYEBYEGD again and transfer your domains to Namecheap for $4.99 for the next 24 hours through 11:59pm EST on 3/31/11 (limit 10 per user, valid for all com/net/org domains).

On top of that, we'll donate $1 for each transfer to Save The Elephants at http://www.savetheelephants.org/

Use coupon code BYEBYEGD and let's help the Elephants together!

Regards,
Team Namecheap

BigRock.com also accepts transfers, use coupon JUMBOSAVE - the cost is $4.95 and its valid till 7th April.

Each transfer adds 1 year to the registration, so this is really cheap when you think about it.
