Today is Dump GoDaddy Day

If you’re not familiar with SOPA, you should be. Especially if you own your own domain name. Especially more-so if your registrar is GoDaddy. You see, GoDaddy initially (loudly) supported SOPA. GoDaddy has since retracted their support for SOPA (at least publicly) because it became such a bad PR move. Still, the mass exodus from GoDaddy has begun, including myself.

This is not an endorsement, but something I thought was a good show of support: NameCheap.com (another registrar) is offering $6.99 domain transfers today and will also donate $1 to the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

In closing, if you’re a GoDaddy customer, I encourage you to read up on SOPA and consider switching registrars.
