    Yep. About the strangest deal I've seen in the hosting world. CEO of GoDaddy,Bob Parson, kills an elephant so namecheap.com offers $4.99 domain transfers (limit of 10).

    Code: BYEBYEGD


    Here is the text for the deal:

    "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).
    On top of that, we?ll donate $1 for each transfer to Save The Elephants at http://www.savetheelephants.org/

    Godaddy will now try to buy back their reputation by offering discount coupon codes. Too bad for them
