Transfer your domain from GoDaddy to Namecheap and help an elephant

Regardless of the subject matter, this is a lesson if you are in busines on how NOT to go about social media. Plus I heartily recommend no one use GoDaddy to begin with given their track record as a domain host and the feedback I have had.
I have used namecheap for years and its the best service I have had anywhere for anything at any time, and throughly recommend
As a namecheap member I got the below newsletter and decided to share it with my readers. If you are like minded its an excellent cost effective way of moving domain hosts right now, plus you do some good. The best bit is you get from under the practices of GoDaddy.
“It’s not often that we would disagree publicly with a competitor, but we at Namecheap are very disturbed by this video of a competitor killing an elephant for sport.  Check out the ABC News Report (Warning: Very Graphic!)

We’ve decided to throw our support behind our Elephant friends by offering domain transfers at a price where we actually lose money.

Show your protest by saying BYEBYEGD again and transfer your domains to Namecheap for $4.99 for the next 24 hours through 11:59pm EST on 3/31/11 (limit 10 per user, valid for all com/net/org domains).

On top of that, we’ll donate $1 for each transfer to Save The Elephants at

Use coupon code BYEBYEGD and let’s help the Elephants together!”

  1. I have only just seen the video now, i have over 100 domains at godaddy and will be shifting them over the next few weeks.

    I wonder what was going through his mind when he made the decision to put that video up!

  2. I have 3 domains on godaddy and one on namecheap. I wonder why they don’t offer to transfer from other registrars like tucows and enom.

  3. Haha, no wonder GoDaddy ratings going down and i always gets bad feedback about it.
    at least now i know how it started!
    good for the elephant! 🙂
