The campaign in boycotting Godaddy started with a thread in reddit posted on December 22. The thread is about a GoDaddy client’s protest against GoDaddy for supporting the SOPA.
The support of the protest rolled the same day the said thread was created and even got the support of the Wikipedia founder who pledge to transfer the Wikipedia domains from GoDaddy to other registrar. And in just less than a week, GoDaddy lost thousands of domains already.
GoDaddy, in response to the protest, through its spokeswoman told the public that it dropped its support of the SOPA. However, protesters argued that it might dropped its support for the SOPA but it did not dropped the support to the PIPA or Protect IP in the Senate, so they will continue their boycott campaign until GoDaddy will fully reject the said acts or its similar acts being passed in the congress and senate.
And since Godaddy is losing costumers, there should be another registrar who will accommodate those who transferred. Several registrar acted, particularly the NameCheap and organized the Move Your Domain Day, which gives discount for every domain moved from GoDaddy to NameCheap.
SOPA means Stop Online Piracy Act which was passed in the US congress this month.
