hey mizerydearia, i'm not sure how you generated your list, but it'd be interesting to see how many (if any) of your original list have moved away from GD so far.


It seems you do not pay attention to details.  -1

Businesses (Trade)
Code:
# for i in `wget -O - https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Trade|grep '<a rel="nofollow"'|grep http|sed 's|.*<a rel="nofollow" class="[^"]\+" href="[^"]*https\?://\([^/]\+\)[^"]*">[^<]\+</a>.*|\1|'`;do if test -n "$(whois $i|grep -i godaddy)";then echo $i supports Go Daddy;fi;sleep 20;done

Bitcoin donation accepting sites
Code:
# for i in `wget -O - https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Donation-accepting_organizations_and_projects|grep '<a rel="nofollow"' |sed 's|.*<a rel="nofollow" class="[^"]\+" href="https\?://\([^/]\+\)[^"]*">[^<]\+</a>.*|\1|'`;do if test -n "$(whois $i|grep -i godaddy)";then echo $i supports Go Daddy;fi;sleep 20;done

From my observations, only these two domains have made the switch so far:

Code:
freenetproject.org
plankhead.com

Kudos to them

A better way to fight against GoDaddy:

https://plus.google.com/115702843161763309837/posts/2QqAe6xP7Xk

GoDaddy has been a supporter of SOPA which has caused many to boycott them.

Here is an even better way to hit them in the bottom line...

Add this somewhere in your webpage (you can just stick it somewhere in the footer)
<a href="http://www.namecheap.com">Domain Registration</a>

GoDaddy is #1 in google for "Domain Registration", but if enough people link to this (it doesn't take much) they will be nocked out of the coveted top spot. This will be a huge dent in their revenue stream, as I think their target audience are people that just chose the first google result.

This is referred to as a "google bomb" and it works by the fact that search ranking is based upon the the weight of the links pointed to a page. The name of the link helps them correlate the search terms that match with the link.

Namecheap was chosen as they have a high ranking (so they have a good chance at popping to the top) and has been vocal in being anti-SOPA. You can use the coupon code "SOPASucks" to get a discount there too.

I just added it to editthis.info and cueflash.com (both with a page rank of 5). That will hit them in the SEOs.

--
edit: I added this to explain why I was linking:

<a href="http://www.namecheap.com">Domain Registration</a>
<a style="font-size:small" href="https://plus.google.com/115702843161763309837/posts/2QqAe6xP7Xk">(why?)</a>

Looks like my post made it into the Atlantic Monthly Smiley

Is there any domain registrar that supports bitcoin? Rob, with your new fame and support for Namecheap, perhaps you could suggest that they accept bitcoin. Perhaps you could make a note of it directly on your post.

I'll drop it into their customer support email, but you should too.

So GoDaddy no longer supports SOPA, but Visa still officially supports it.  It's impossible to completely switch over to BTC at the moment though Sad

Godaddy has dropped being on the 'list' of SOPA supporters but still seems to support it:

I have completed the transfer of two of my domains away from Godaddy.

Yesterday, Go Daddy’s new CEO Warren Adelman posted this short statement in Go Daddy’s forums:

Go Daddy opposes SOPA because the legislation has not fulfilled its basic requirement to build a consensus among stake-holders in the technology and Internet communities. Our company regrets the loss of any of our customers, who remain our highest priority, and we hope to repair those relationships and win back their business over time.

This reads, to me, as if Warren Adelman's only concern is GoDaddy's stock value. To hell with holding any convictions as to whether a law is good or bad for a community--regional or global.

Quote

I'm not sure if Warren is addressing this toward GoDaddy's customer base or stockholders.

Quote
Warren Adelman (born 1963) is the CEO of The Go Daddy Group, Inc., the World's largest domain name registrar; managing more than 50 million domain names and responsible for a significant percentage of the web sites on the Internet. The Go Daddy Group, is composed of three ICANN-accredited domain name registrars; two of which (GoDaddy.com and Wild West Domains) are in the top ten largest registrars in the World.

Warren joined Go Daddy after numerous senior positions in the technology market including CEO of NeoPlanet, a customer interaction software company where he established partnerships with Compaq, USA Networks, MTV, Universal Studios, New Line Cinema and others. Warren was also President of Strategic Relations at Network Associates (now McAfee) and Vice President of Business Development at Bigfoot, a leader in email communications and marketing automation technologies. In 2002, Adelman joined Go Daddy as the Vice President of Corporate Development.

In addition to his role at Go Daddy, Warren serves on the Industry Advisory Board at Arizona State University's College of Technology and Innovation. He also was a member of the ICANN Affirmation of Commitments Accountability and Transparency Review team.

Prior to entering the private sector, Warren served as an officer in the Israel Defense Forces. He also spent six years in international relations at the Israeli Embassy in Washington, D.C., where he served as Chief of Public Affairs. During this time, Warren was a member of the media and communications team for Israel's Delegation to Bilateral Peace Talks held in Washington, D.C. between 1991 and 1996.

Because `grep` (see original post) caught this.

thrucoin.com still supports Go Daddy

haven't paid (and won't be paying) them any more money though... just waiting on enough funds to do it in bulk instead of one domain at a time.
