The GoDaddy Saga Continues 203

Posted by timothy
from the needs-more-illustrations dept.
First time accepted submitter wbr1 writes "Domain registrar Namecheap is accusing GoDaddy of violating ICANN rules and hindering domain owners from moving their domains to another registrar. They are allegedly doing this by submitting incomplete information to the new registrar, making it difficult to process the move." Adds user bs0d3: "Godaddy has responded to these allegations today and insist that their practice of rate limiting Whois queries is standard practice to combat Whois abuse. Furthermore, they accuse Namecheap of playing foul because they released a statement before ever contacting godaddy directly to resolve these issues."

      That is the truth. I had to consolidate registrars for a company. It was a challenge to get them all off GoDaddy. But it was a real battle to get them off NameCheap. For some I had to renew them with NameCheap before they would move them!

        How close to expiration were they when you tried to transfer them? There are rules in place to prevent some activity on an almost expired domain (whois updates, etc.).

    I have used many registrars and Namecheap has always been the best one. Their interface is also super clean and efficient. Their prices are one of the most competitive ones, they offer free private registration, dns hosting and everything you need. And did I say their interface is super clean? You get everything done easily and quickly, without them trying to shove extra services as premium prices down to you. If you have ever tried to register domain with GoDaddy you know what I'm talking about - the whole registration process itself is pain in the ass and you need to keep unticking all those extra services they try to offer you.

    With my years of experience and managing over hundred domains, I can only recommend Namecheap.

      I used them too, and was very happy right up to when I tried to move the domains off. Why the move? Consolidation, but mainly because the foreign domain proxy office service could not be removed when we finally opened and office in that country. (Kinda expensive for some countries...) Then I found the problems. The are not actually the registrar for many of the foreign country domains, and they have some real problems moving your domains away. In some cases, I had to renew for another year, with another full year of the proxy office which I no longer needed, just to get my domain back. I got to know all the techs, since they only have a handful. Nice guys, but powerless in this case. Much more pleased with SafeNames. More expensive, but for a reason.

      Just to add another testimonial: I use Namecheap for my 20-odd domains and they have been fine; easy administration, prompting me when I needed to renew them, decent prices, decent customer service.

      I haven't tried to move any domains away from Namecheap, so I'm not sure whether they're a bit dodgy there; it'd be a shame if they are.

      Their strong anti-SOPA stance also gives them brownie points in my view.

    I moved to Namecheap a few months ago after becoming sick and tired of GoDaddy's shitty business practices. I decided to move to Namecheap shortly before my registrations with GoDaddy expired.

    Before allowing me to transfer my domains, I was informed that I had to update my Whois info to make sure that it was accurate. There was no way to *not* do this. I could not begin the transfer process until this was done. I had done it a few months prior when ICANN requires yearly updates. This was something new.

    Upon being forced to update my information (none of which was actually changed), my domains were forced into "locked" status, and thus prevented from being transferred for *two* months. Despite the fact that ICANN has released numerous statements saying that this behavior is not allowed, GoDaddy enforced this policy, despite me calling and talking to ten or fifteen different individuals.

    I eventually had to renew each domain with GoDaddy, wait the two months, and then attempt the transfer to Namecheap again.

    GoDaddy is a shit company, and I sincerely hope that an elephant tramples Bob Parsons.

Since GoDaddy allows you to log in an "approve" a transfer in process, the whole thing was done in 20 minutes from start to finish. Never had one go that fast, so I have to give credit to GoDaddy where it's due here. At least in this case, they were not putting up any roadblocks.

    I transferred an expiring domain to Namecheap last week for reasons unrelated to GoDaddy's asshattery, but I saw a blog post (that I can no longer find, alas) pointing out something in Namecheap's TOS [namecheap.com] that bothers the hell out of me. Specifically:

    You agree that Namecheap, in its sole discretion and without liability to you, may refuse to accept the registration of any domain name. Namecheap also may in its sole discretion and without liability to you delete the registration of any domain name during the first thirty (30) days after registration has taken place. Namecheap may also cancel the registration of a domain name, after thirty (30) days, if that name is being used, as determined by Namecheap in its sole discretion, in association with spam or morally objectionable activities (as well as any activities set forth in Section 4 above). Morally objectionable activities will include, but not be limited to 1) activities designed to defame, embarrass, harm, abuse, threaten, slander or harass third parties; 2) activities prohibited by the laws of the United States and/or foreign territories in which you conduct business; 3) activities designed to encourage unlawful behavior by others, such as hate crimes, terrorism and child pornography; 4) activities that are tortious, vulgar, obscene, invasive of the privacy of a third party, racially, ethnically, or otherwise objectionable; activities designed to impersonate the identity of a third party; 5) and activities designed to harm or use unethically minors in any way.

    Note the part about "Namecheap in its sole discretion" and imagine that the guy answering the "abuse@" email is having a bad day. Suppose I have a blog on a domain registered through them and I:

    1) Embarrass a local politician.
    2) Get AdSense revenue from a post saying that the Egyptian government sucks.
    3) Say I think it's OK for someone to smoke pot, even if it's illegal where they live.
    4) Say something that someone, somewhere, thinks is vulgar or obscene.
    5) Make fun of Justin Bieber.

    Namecheap could decide in its sole discretion that any of those is sufficient to delete my domain from the registry. Frankly, that's bullshit. I know that Namecheap is unlikely to do something so boneheaded, but I'm utterly against them having the right to yank me off the Internet just because they don't like what I've said. And although I'm talking here about Namecheap specifically, I recognize that a lot of other registrars have similar terms. Does anyone use a more freedom-respecting registrar that they would recommend?

    • Following up to myself, the blog post I mentioned [zacwe.st] points out the nearly identical terms and conditions in GoDaddy's and Namecheap's contracts. Gandi has the same objectionable terms. I've written to NearlyFreeSpeech to ask for clarification of their policy but haven't heard back yet, and it looks like Hover specifically avoids any "morality clauses".

        • But it's not for web hosting - it's for domain registration. In what conceivable world could a domain's content cause legal trouble for a pre-SOPA American registrar?

        • why would they eat the expese of a legal mess caused by a customer?

          So customers engaging in controversial speech patronize them?

          At least in theory - it sounds like a losing business model given the current state of the US legal system.

      Sounds like generic terms that won't actually be used by a good registrar for anything other than domains used for illegal purposes. Domains used for child pornography sites, for example.
      • But there are already laws that kick in there, hence the phrase "illegal purposes". If their terms of service said something like "we can delete your domain if ordered by a court of law", then I'd have no problem with it at all. Instead, they open the floodgates for deleting domains for any reason they feel like.

        I don't buy that. I want a registrar that will only delete a domain when ordered to do so by a court. That "sole discretion" clause sounds like a bad idea.

  • playing foul because they released a statement before ever contacting godaddy directly to resolve these issues

    Oh, but conspiring with the media mafia and bought congressmen to censor the internet for profit. That's playing fair?

    I hope they go bankrupt before 2012.

  • Furthermore, they accuse Namecheap of playing foul because they released a statement before ever contacting godaddy directly to resolve these issues.

    Funny, when I put up my anti-GoDaddy site, they tried to have my server shut down (along with all my other sites) and, when that failed (my provider told them to pound sand), tried to have my domain pulled due to incomplete or incorrect contact information. When my registrar notified me (via the admin email on that domain) I informed them that they are more than welcome to write me at the address on file and/or call me at the number on file.

    Namecheap is using GoDaddy's tactics, here, and GoDaddy can't take

  • That's why I don't trust this industry. "GoDaddy", can it be more porn? And "Namecheap", say no more!

There are running jobs. Why don't you go chase them?
