Talk about hitting someone when there down, Forbes.com just published a post entitled 5 Reasons Why You Should Leave Godaddy (and How).
Forbes writes in part:
“In the last few years, GoDaddy has come under fire plenty of times – and for plenty of reasons. Not only has the company used sexual advertising several times to promote its services (reasons 1-3 why anyone paying GoDaddy money should leave, we’ll say), but CEO Bob Parsons murdered a wild elephant in Zimbabwe (reason number 4) and then supported SOPA (which thankfully did not pass – and reason number 5.)”
“Today, GoDaddy lost control of its services almost entirely, coming under attack by apparently Anonymous, causing almost every one of its hosted websites to go offline, along with most of GoDaddy’s email service and some of the domains registered through GoDaddy.”
“Why millions of websites are still hosted with GoDaddy is beyond me, but enough is enough. If you’re ready to leave GoDaddy, here are a few great alternatives to register/transfer your domain names and hosting.”
Actually I’m pretty surprised not to have gotten a special offer from namecheap.com by now.
