After working my way through all the ads they display in the registration process, I got to the checkout window. I specifically did not check the 'send me updates' box, since I already get enough spam in my inbox.
Yet despite that, GoDaddy still sends several emails to me on a regular basis. I get an almost daily update of the status of my domain name. 'your domain xyz.com expires in 237 days'. I also get a newsletter from their CEO about the latest news on their company.
Most companies will send you an email verifying that you have signed up for their newsletter, and requiring you to click on a link to complete the registration. GoDaddy never did this. They simply added me to their spam list without ever doing me the courtesy of asking if I wanted to join, and despite the fact that I did not check their sign up box when I joined.
Of all the companies I have done business with on the web, it would be difficult to recall any who have spammed me to a greater level than GoDaddy.
Just a fair warning to anyone considering doing business with them. Prepare to have your inbox filled with spam. If the lower price is too much of a bargain to pass up, I would suggest opening a throw away email account, on Yahoo, and using that email address. This way, all the spam they send you will go there, instead of into your real email account.
