Goodbye GODADDY ...


I've been with for many years. With any other discrepancy on what I was charged or suppose to be charged, they fixed it. Not this time. Customer service stated I am outside of the FIVE DAY grace period.

I own a few dozen domains, that I eventually plan to sell for profit with MOST. Less than a handful are for personal use.

I DISABLED the auto renew so that I would CHOOSE which domains or options **I** wanted. In September, GoDaddy sent me a LIST of soon to expire domains ... one of which I did NOT want renewed.

TRICKED ... I manually selected which ones on the list, but the SYSTEM included the one I did not want. I called GoDaddy and the rep told me it would be removed. I told him I was NOT renewing it and letting it go. NEVER renew from the list they send you. ONLY do it within your account if you choose to stay with GoDaddy. It's just a matter of time before someone else is another victim.

I seldom log onto my account and again saw that it was still there last month. I was very upset and called again ... This time I didn't allow the rep to dictate the chain of events ... I demanded it be refunded and stated I was NOT renewing ... I was NOT donating this site or my time or money to an organization that no longer existed.

I logged on tonight to see it still renewed for another year. Not taken off my account or refunded. I told the rep TAKE IT OFF MY ACCOUNT AND REFUND ... he told me I was out of the 5 day grace and there would be no refund.

I've been a victim of theirs one too many times. But they always corrected it. Not this time. They received the last $$$ they will ever get from me. One can only be taken advantage of if you let it happen. I refuse to be a victim of their ripoff.

Besides this report ... I am going to file a chargeback with my bank card and also file a complaint with the better business bureau. ... ... AND transferring all 62 domains to another provider.

While it's true companies, like even our web hosting company has to charge for extra (out of the ordinary) products, features or asked for services requested by a client; reports like this just prove to push bad feelings and bad reputations of hard working, honest domain name/web hosting companies that have been in business for years (ours is 10) that rub off on the industry as a whole and make them all suspected of down and dirty practices. The old saying "one bad apple" just sorta rubs of on everyone in this line of business because of bad business practices like this report of

We're not saying was in the right, in fact the opposite is true otherwise there would not behundreds ofreports about GoDaddy listed here. It's just too bad it comes down to a RipOFF Report to warn off others from making the same mistake and using a national/international company like for their domain names and web hosting. But they just keep using GoDaddy all the time, and that is a real shame.
