SOPA Support Sparks GoDaddy Exodus

godaddyThe protests against the pending Stop Online Piracy Act continues.

After a list of all supporters was published yesterday, opponents are now trying to find ways to voice their concerns directly to these companies.

A few hours ago Reddit user selfprodigy started the following thread.

I just finished writing GoDaddy a letter stating why I’m moving my small businesses 51 domains away from them, as well as my personal domains. I also pointed out that i transferred over 300 domains to them as a director of IT for a major American company.

I’m suggesting Dec 29th as move your domain away from GoDaddy day because of their support of SOPA. Who’s with me?

Since the thread was started thousands of users applauded the idea, and even GoDaddy competitors got involved offering discounts for those who want to transfer out.

For those who are interested in switching also, here’s an easy guide.

Update: The CEO of the famous Cheezeburger network is threatening to move 1000+ domains.
