UPDATE: Godaddy Loses 28,000 More Domains On Saturday
Yesterday we reported on the two day loss from domain names transferred out of Godaddy.com to other domain name registrars in like of their former support of the SOPA Bill.
As a quick update DailyChanges.com reported an additional 28,656 domain names transferred out of Godaddy.com.
It should be noted that this figure only includes domain names that use Godaddy.com default servers and does not include domains that are hosted on their own server.
For Example this blog, TheDomains.com is hosted on servers ns1.thedomains.com and ns2.thedomains.com. If our domain registrar was Godaddy.com (which is and was not) and we moved the domain from Godaddy we would not be on the DailyChanges.com report.
There are sources that track overall domains registered at domain name registrars but they those reports are not real time and report one or two weeks behind, so we will have to wait a while for more accurate reports.
However out of the 50 Million domains registered by Godaddy over 32 Million of these have use Godaddy.com default server of Domaincontrol.com so its a pretty good indication of overall movement.
We will continue to follow the story.
