Complaint Review: Godaddy
Godaddygodaddy.com Internet U.S.A.
Godaddy.com Godaddy My domain name was taken after doing a domain name search at their website. It showed available but when I returned later to purchase it showed registered to Godaddy. Internet
*Consumer Comment: Risking billions?
*Consumer Suggestion: what was the domain name?
*Consumer Comment: Ethics is not this company's strong suit.
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: Not Likely
I went home after work that day to discuss the website venture with my wife and we agreed to it. When I got online and returned to purchase the name it was taken. I was so disappointed so I did a Whois search to see who had gained the domain name and it was showing registered to Godaddy.
I went to the website I was trying to obtain to see it and it was parked by godaddy. They have a doamin name auction service that lists high appraised domain names for sale. So if you really want a domain name you will have to pay to obtain it.
I feel that godaddy is monitoring the domain name search and using the data entry history to market your domain search ideas at a higher price. Do not search your domain name their website unless you are going to secure it immediately. Use an outside Whois search that does not sell domains.
