    I didn't even know they had that kind of money. I just think of them as a shitty service, and I avoid them at all costs.

    GoDaddy was said to have had more than 61 million domain names under management, making it the world's largest ICANN-accredited registrar. Also it is a public company, so no wonder it had that kind of cash.

    Just bc it's a billion dollar company doesn't mean it's not shitty.
