If you’re not off of Godaddy yet …

You should be. The Godaddy girls are stupid. The commercials are worse. Bob Parsons is kinda creepy (not just the elephant thing). The ads are terrible. The site is terrible.

Do you need another excuse to move your registrar needs to another company such as Gandi or Namecheap?

You need another excuse? here it is.

You should know what SOPA¬† * is about between the lines. (Job growth? Puh-leese, the job growth from the .com boom didn’t need SOPA thank you very much!)

Over the last few months I’ve moved a dozen domains off of Godaddy on to others (client’s discretion).
If you’re still on the fence, there’s a pretty good run down of good alternative registrars on this blog post.

ICANN also has a full (but impersonal) list of accredited registrars as well.

PS: Namecheap has a coupon code for a little bit off “SOPASUCKS”.

  2. Namecheap – they usually have good promos going; I even have a free 1yr SSL cert I haven't activated yet as well as whoisguard for a year for xferring.
