GoDaddy.com ~ robbing users on overpriced domains

#1
Basically a rip-off. When Godaddy.com sells you Domains so ridiculously overpriced that they are basically stealing all your money.

Here is just one example

Now i know why Admin you haven't purchased the .com domain for this site as I am not surprised at all that Godaddy would be involved in this type of fraud and unethical practices. Not to mention that Godaddy.com has already come under fire & scrutiny for plenty of reasons in the past years. 

1. Godaddy.com has already used sexual advertising to promote its Domain services

If you don’t work in the tech industry, the name ‘GoDaddy’ probably makes you think of a barely-clothed Danica Patrick, Which is exactly what the company wanted. 

   

Not only are the ads mind-blowingly sexist, they also seem to be pandering to the wrong demographic.

If you have been expecting something fresh and extraordinary from GoDaddy after the SOPA backlash, you are in for a disappointment.

GoDaddy, the Web registrar giant, still stinging from the SOPA impact, has leaked its two Super Bowl 2012 ads on YouTube.

Both the Super Bowl 2012 ads have the usual sexy stuff, like the previous year's GoDaddy ads, leaving one wondering when GoDaddy will stop its struggle to convert a not sexy domains registration into a hot and sexy babe.

The domain registrar company had to face its users' ire, after it openly supported the SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act).

Though GoDaddy is known for its provocative television ads which are more sleazy than creative, this time it was expected that the company might finally come up with some ad that would smooth its battered image.

The first big game ad, named Body Paint, features its spokespersons Danica Patrick and Jillian Michaels painting a nude model's body with GoDaddy domain names and messages.

Second spot for the big game, named The Cloud, has Patrick with scantily clad Pussycat dolls. It tells the story of two guys who go to the silver cloud world where the silver clad pussycats reside.
The ads have generated furious comments from the viewers.

2. CEO Bob Parsons of Godaddy.com killed a wild elephant in Zimbabwe

CEO posted of himself killing a elephant. Bob Parsons of Godaddy.com is unapologetic.

GoDaddy also initially supported SOPA, in which takes away the freedom of speech and activity on the internet.
