GoDaddy’s Support of SOPA Act Prompts Massive Boycott

bdonlineshopping.com

On last week’s edition of the Geek Girl Report, I talked about the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and why it is such a troubling piece of legislation. There have been many Internet giants speaking out against this bill, such as Google, Facebook and eBay. However, not everyone is against the act, and they’re paying the price.

GoDaddy, the popular website hosting company, made an announcement that they were in support of the SOPA Act. In retaliation, angry customers have launched a massive boycott of GoDaddy, threatening to move their domains and websites off of GoDaddy and transfer them to other hosting sites. Already, a reported 37,000 sites and domains have left GoDaddy.

Due to the backlash from its customers, the company has since retracted its previous statements, but it seems the damage has already been done. The boycott of GoDaddy is officially set to begin today. Well, that’s what they get for supporting such an asinine act.
