Godaddy dosen't like Godaddy domains
#1
I just noticed that if you go to Godaddy and you try to register a domain name with the phrase "GoDaddy" in it, nothing happens.

You just get the message:
Please select a different domain name to search on.

Guess they are protecting their trademark but wouldn't people just register their domain at another registrar... Rolleyes?

They can hardly do anything about people registering domain names bearing
their trademark in other registrars. But at least they can do something about
it on something they control.

I found it funny when I read a few online complaints towards Go Daddy for
not allowing them to register variations, citing free speech and all that. But
what some people don't realize is they don't have full privileges when using
someone else's service.

Maybe someone else would be really "bugged" one day and will decide to register with other companies against them, and just to get them in some way... I mean, revenge is a dish better served cold! LOL!

You decide not to use Godaddy again after getting treated badly there. Then who would you use instead? Someone else gets you as a customer.

Exactly! That's the beauty of having so many options. Many people b elieve that they don't care about loosing one customer, but the thing is, that one that you loose, will talk about it and you'll loose at least 10 potential clients. That's why the policy should be "the client is always right".

Once you register a domain name anywhere it should be protected that is supposed to be insured by that icann surcharge we get.
