Last year’s trashy GoDaddy SuperBowl commercials annoyed me enough to switch domain registrars; this year’s just confirmed I made the right decision. If you want out, here’s what I posted about it last year:
Yes, I knew that popular, cheap domain registrar GoDaddy always used sex to sell their services, and yes, their bullying upsells always bugged me, but yesterdayâ€™s Super Bowl ad shot my â€œStop doing business with GoDaddyâ€ to-do to the top of my list. But where to transfer to? I polled my Twitter friends on which registrars were the best alternatives. Hereâ€™s a spreadsheet of the full vote tally; turns out the least expensive, top vote-getter was Namecheap.com.
Been very happy with NameCheap ever since, and their “Not happy with your current registrar’s advertising methods?” switching coupon code, SWITCH2NC, still works. Sorry, Danica: I like looking at beautiful people, just not at Hooters.
