    GoDaddy, the Internet's largest platform for small businesses, has acquired (mt) Media Temple. Its a great news for a community over here - just keep an eye on both these platforms

    a) GoDaddy
    b) Media Temple

    Lot of super hot deals are going to come over there as surely you will get heaps benefit in discount, sales on Domain Name and Web Hosting.

    Here is a great comment from a guy who said it perfectly, IMO...

    "Goodbye Media Temple.
    You will be missed by many who do not wish to line GoDaddy's pockets.
    Between GoDaddy supporting SOPA, their commercials objectifying women, and their horrible customer service,
    you guys really couldn't have made a worse move.
    "

    Fuck, I am seriously tired of see these douchebags. Namecheap and domain.com are where it's at.

    One thing that makes me happy is that they will keep it as a separate entity and still employ all of those working at MT. I really like Media Template and have mixed feelings about upsell-Daddy.

    Godaddy might keep that as separate one, but they might add their own fancy features very soon lol.

    I would rather drink my own piss through the rotting corpse of an infected tramp than use anything by Godaddy (amongst others)

    Abandon all hope all that enter GD.
