Anti-SOPA registrar will help you leave GoDaddy for anywhere, even the competition

Nick sez, "I wrote a post on my company's blog (The Positive Internet Company) explaining why SOPA is a big deal not just in the US, but for the Internet as a whole. We have rescued a number of sites from malign censorship (like Dr Ben Goldacre's 'Bad Science' blog), so we know exactly how such laws will be abused. The SOPA-quislings GoDaddy have attempted recently to increase their market-share in the United Kingdom by advertising on the London Underground with posters of semi-nude women. We respect many of our competitors; but GoDaddy are tainting the reputation of our industry. As such, we will help people to migrate domains away from them, even if to other competitors of ours." Speaking of which, let me reiterate my personal satisfaction with Hover for domain registration and DNS.


  1. Shows how far advertising can get you.  GoDaddy have always been a horrible company, for so many different reasons, and yet they’re huge.  If they had a smaller marketing budget they’d have gone down years ago.

  2. GoDaddy supports SOPA?

    Thank God!  If that misogynistic, serial-spamming, god-awful-web-designing, elephant killing, domain-sniping piece of shit company was against it I think I’d have to reevaluate my position.

  3. I’m in the process of moving my small company off of GoDaddy.  Not because of SOPA (though that does concern me), but because their service sucks.

  4. When Bob Parsons shot and killed an African elephant and posted it on his Facebook page, people were fleeing GoDaddy like crazy…………..many of them coming to host with our company: Canvas Dreams ( I do highly recommend checking them out as they walk the walk and talk the talk, when it comes to being a sustainable and people oriented web hosting company that CARES about their customers, and the planet. They are also a certified B-Corporation, which puts people, planet and profits………exactly in that order……………that’s why it’s called a Benefit Corporation or B-Corp.
