    anyone else get a bunch of domains suspended today? So far ive lost 6, all of which I dont even use anymore, and have no traffic to them. When I asked why, they said they were associated with other accounts spamming CL. What could be the association here? I used a different CC everytime, and different name every time.

    At least they were not being used. This is the perfect reason to stay away from GoDaddy.

    I'm surprised people still hand out their money to them. To get your domain taken away from you is just unheard of with a decent company.

    Yeah man, that really sucks. Fortunately I only have a couple of throw away .info's with them that aren't that important. I recommend Namech*eap for your long term sites. Never had any problems in 5 yrs.

    Hmm... haven't tried this but let's say you transfer your domains to another registrar, away from gobatty ... wonder if they could still close them. Maybe someone here knows. Had a few domains & hosting accounts with them when I first started online but quickly realized how *inconvenient* their services were.

    Still have some important domains w/ them though, would be good to know.

    I dont like godaddy either.

    Im with 1and1 and so far I dont have any problem with them. They are now selling .com .org or .net in 6.99 usd for the first year and always have free private registration.

    I also use godaddy for my domains.. Just curious how long does it take for idotz.net to switch nameservers to another host company like hostgator?

    Honestly not to sound contradictory but I like godaddy. on the other hand all my BH is done from home PC anything on godaddy is legit. but thats because i dont want the Fb i visiting me because they found stuff on a hosting company lol. What exactly did they complain about was it email spamming?

    Godaddy is total piece of shit. Their website loads like your on dial up or some shit. Plus they sting you with fucking rip off renewal fees if you forget about them if your paypal.

    IMO I moved to Namecheap years ago and never looked back. It's like hostgator, everyone uses them, even though they are a big pile of poop.
