    GoDaddy.com, the closely held website that registers Internet domain names, has put itself up for sale in an auction that could fetch more than $1 billion, people familiar with the matter said.

    I'm glad none of my sites are registered with godaddy. Liz

    Mine are. Guess I'd better see about moving them elsewhere.

    I do hope whomever buys them ditches the race car driver gal, don't get me wrong I love the lady's, but it gets so old and tiring seeing her mug on my renewal emails..

    alot of people seem to. I'll look into getting my domains moved over there.

    I am unclear why you would need to move domains registered with gd. Whoever pay $1B will probably not destroy it.

    _NEVER_ liked GoDaddy's interface, glad I don't use them. Now I just need to make sure none of the domains on other people's account I have association with doesn't have my information in the whois database, as well as their billing informations.

    Is now a bad time to admit that I have pre-paid hosting with them for the next 18months? :oops:

    Why move them?
  13. Elizabeth

    Elizabeth Well-Known Member

    Yeah...question, why prepay ahead that much?

    Buying a 2 year block came with a huge discount. It is a shared hosting account, for hosting some static documents. We have full backups and the name registrar is someone else. We could switch over within a day to some other place.

    been using namecheap for many years now. Had godaddy at one point, but I quit after getting too many spam emails from them.

    GoDaddy has always treated me good, they've updated a ton of their interface over the years but still works for me just as good :). I've never had a single problem from ordered, to getting the domain set. I don't own hosting through them and I have heard horror stories regarding that but none that are first-hand to me. I don't see why you would need to move, whoever buys it isn't going to purchase it for the sole reason of shutting it down.

    That was exactly my experience, and they were hopeless at customer support. Namecheap are awesome!

    Does anyone have a Billion dollars for GoDaddy in the current market? Just curious, maybe the Ebay monster will gobble them up.

    I've always found GoDaddy to go way to commercial on their website already being a commercial company. Their interface is too cluttered and their support service is lacking when you need it. Their DNS servers are also pretty slow compared to Namecheap. I used to have their service a long long time ago, ever since I've switched to Namecheap it's been much nicer and efficient to manage my domains and whatnot. Good luck to whoever buys it anyways! :)

    I don't remember who I had before namecheap but when I was looking around for a different one, godaddy was a possibility. a friend of mine told me to stay away as their user panel was very unfriendly. So I did. Namecheap has been awesome.
