    Guys what You think is there any chance to fight against that huge company?

    What's the problem it's all about parking I read a lot of bad things about godaddy parking, but the main problem is that it's paid.

    My example: I paid for 1-year parking I make nice cash from my domains(about 100$+) but I didn't receive payment so I contact support, support said that they pay with 3 months periods (I using Paypal so that was weird for me) But ok I waited till next period and contact again, after contact I get information that they contact with finance and will tell me in 72h when they can send me cash. After 92h without respond, I contact again and I received notification that my account is suspended and I can't use this service anymore. I asked about more information about which domain violate terms and uses but they said that they can't check that... I have all the email and screens from the account from many dates.

    Conclusion:
    I lost cash for 1-year parking and I waste the time of my domains and all earnings that I should receive for parking use. They will not give back cash for parking even if I do not use it anymore because I not even can use it.

    Maybe someone else has the same experience as this company?

    The cost to bring a lawsuit over $100, would be a negative ev play. You need to find out why the account was cancelled it might be they suspect click fraud.

    over 100$ for month - 3 months about 400+ parking subscription. Ok, click fraud but there is no chance to get information which domain has bad traffic? If they don't have information about which domain has bad traffic how can they ban? Random bans? Even google Adsense informs if any domain violates its rules.

    I tried it...for me, it was a waste of time. Whether my names are registered at daddy, silo or epik they all go to voodoo.com if parking is part of the plan for that name.

    If you were suspended like this it is very likely for bad ad clicks. If you are violating the terms of parking and our upstream ad provider does not like what you are doing they will take the money back from us. So we almost certainly have no money to give you. There is a decent chance we lost money on the deal depending on how much they took and what we already paid you.
    The reason why it took so long is probably because they, or we, or both of us were investigating you. Also more than likely your domains were fail listed and not eligible for parking revenue from that upstream provider no matter where you choose to park them in the future. You should have received an email stating that the account is suspended and we no longer wish to have you as a parking customer. If we allow customers with ad violations to use our service we can have serious ramifications with our ad provider. It is not personal.
