    I saw many threads about leaving GoDaddy. Just a short question - what's that all about?

    Godaddy supported SOPA and withdrew their statement in an attempt to keep their customers.

    Moved completely away this week...

    My DNS is now through Namecheap, and my email is now through Google Apps.

    They withdrew their statement, but they still support SOPA.

    I can't be bothered to make the switch, sadly.

    I use Namecheap as well (mostly just for registrations, though), and stopped doing business with GoDaddy years ago. They've been a terrible registrar long before SOPA.

    I didn't know about SOPA until I saw it being talked about here on XF. Why is it a bad thing? Do people fear that Government and legislators will use SOPA against honest internet businesses?

    I stayed for Danica Patrick. On a more serious note, I haven't made a decision yet. I was considering it a little over a year ago am not sure I really want to go through all the hassle just yet. I really do think they have the worst control panel ever.

    I moved all my domains that I could. I have a few registered this month that are not eligible yet.

    I quit GoDaddy the same way I quit smoking and drinking - I never started. :D

    No, it accomplishes nothing. Symbolism over substance.

    And this. :p

    The Drupal community (in LA at least) held a "Lets Leave GoDaddy" Day:

    Even if you love SOPA, you should probably still switch your domains away from GoDaddy (their shared hosting is crap too, honestly, especially for running Drupal).

    When you unlock your domain at GoDaddy in advance of a transfer, they make a last minute pitch about changing their minds about SOPA.

    Have a look at the attachment:
