    I've heard a lot of bad things about GoDaddy. Maybe you should switch to another company like Namecheap. I've been with them since my first ever website and I've never had any problems.

    I have around 32 domains with namecheap all .com's. But i needed around 20 .info domains and namecheap doesn't offer then cheap. I got it from godaddy at $1. Sure the domains are cheap but there are hassles like this.

    BTW i have uploaded my driving license and now they require scanned copy of Credit card.

    Refuse to send them your DL because you are worried about ID theft and demand your money back

    After you get your money back sign up with a good host, GD hosting sucks.

    The OP just mentioned his 'website' so I assumed he just got hosting from them.

    If he's getting grief about his domain then do the same thing, he should tell them he won't send his DL cause email is insecure.

    If they argue demand their PGP key, that will shut them up.
