vote with your wallet, godaddy supported sopa and is only backing off due to financial pressure and backlash. I'm in the make htem an example and show thier ilk, that attempts at censorship and locking out sites cannot be. 4 domains moved to google and staying there, I don't care where you move your stuff, but please remove it from godaddy.com

Try NameSilo. I'm on their Facebook page and they just announced a coupon code BULKTRANSFER. It is 15% off on any single transfer order of more than $50, and the 15% applies to the entire order regardless of the total amount spent. They are getting good feedback online for price and service.

I have my domains with Domain Monger, but have a dedicated server with GoDaddy. Once my service expires in June, it is time to get a server with someone else and repoint all the ip addresses.

http://www.namecheap.com/ is getting lots of recommendations on the slashdot article about this. I haven't used them. They also do SSL certs.

What makes the impending legislation interesting is the fact that Go Daddy will be exempted from having to obey its stipulations, effectively giving it free reign and the proxy to continue its role as a server to large media outlets who stand to take market share from independent media agencies and re assert their dominance from cable, print media and if they play their cards right the internet...the final holy grail and until now the dominion of indie content providers. Either way Go daddy is trying to straddle the line

Yeah, GoDaddy lost their reputation for the way they conduct business. Google GoDaddy Auction Scams and you will see another dark chapter of theirs. Glad I don't have any of my domains with them.

Two frightening pieces of controversial legislation, SOPA and The NDAA only go to further stifle our Constitutional Rights without the approval of the Americans, just as the Patriot Act was adopted WITHOUT public approval or vote just weeks after the events of 9/11. A mere 3 criminal charges of terrorism a year are attributed to this act, which is mainly used for no-knock raids leading to drug-related arrests without proper cause for search and seizure. The laws are simply a means to spy on our own citizens and to detain and censor public opinion without trial or a right to council. You can read much more about living in this Orwellian society of fear and see my visual response to these measures on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/09/living-in-society-of-fear-ten-years.html
