Boycott GoDaddy Over Their Support of SOPA & PIPA
We Did It! GoDaddy has officially pulled their support of SOPA & PIPA. 22,000 Boycotters pledged to move over 82,000 domain names from GoDaddy over the boycott period. Thank You!
Boycott GoDaddy until they send a letter to Congress taking back any and all support of the House and Senate versions of the internet censorship bill, both SOPA and PIPA. Since the announcement of the boycott of GoDaddy, GoDaddy has just publicly dropped their support of the heinous Stop Online Piracy Act or SOPA. But, they still support the Senate version of SOPA, called PIPA or PROTECT-IP. If you work on the internet and do business with GoDaddy you're supporting a company who is actively working against your best interests.
Reddit user selfprodigy got the ball rolling on December 22nd by posting that he would be pulling 51 GoDaddy-registered domains from the company. He was quickly followed by Ben Huh of Cheezburger (I Can Has Cheeseburger, FAIL! Blog, Know Your Meme) who pledged to move 1000+ of the companies domains. Even Wikipedia is transferring their domains from GoDaddy. We want you to follow their lead. Can we get GoDaddy's attention?
Several other domain registration services have publicly proclaimed their opposition to SOPA and PIPA: Hover, NameCheap and Dreamhost, and Name.com to name a few. Many will even give you a special discount if you're switching from GoDaddy. Lifehacker has a good list of alternatives and some instructions.
