If you’ve been online for more than a year or two, you’ve probably registered a .com domain with GoDaddy. And why not! As long as you don’t get sucked in to the gazillion options on the way to the checkout it’s hard to find a cheaper registrar or indeed one as quick and easy to setup.
However, if you’ve been around online awhile, you’ve probably also heard horror stories of what GoDaddy can and does do to domains if you violate their terms and conditions.
Now we at WebSavvy do not condone spammers in any shape or form. We’ve never ever done it never will. However, it only takes one person to receive an email from you, forget they signed up to your list, and report you as a spammer and things can go pear shaped!
Should the worst happen & GoDaddy receive a spam report, they will lock your domain. They won’t give you access at all. Got other domains in the same account, they’re in danger too! No problem you say, I’ll give the a call & sort it out. Nope that department doesn’t have a phone! You have to do it all by email & they make it very hard!
Luckily it’s never happened to me or friends in Australia but every month there’s another post on the Warrior forum detailing another account of woe. So it’s time to be proactive & move them before anything happens!
Mike Filsaime recently recommended www.namecheap.com so I’m going to give them a go & I’ll create a CheatSheet for you tomorrow to detail the steps of the process because they ain’t obvious!
(by the way, I use www.namescout.com.au for Australian registrations)
See you tomorrow.
