    I always wondered who owned NamePros .. I think your "sarcasm" is an elaborate ruse and that you really are the owner of NamePros! Nice try!

    I've given up on reporting bugs to GoDaddy these days .. most of the people there have good intentions, but unless you're reporting your issues directly to the top, then 90%+ of the time your report just seems to disappear into thin air with zero return communications. GD is too big for their own good when it comes to stuff like this.

    Now i knew what you wanted to say, this is not a bug, to godaddy hosting you can decide what the name you want, you can put the name facebook.com, twitter etc, but to connect the domain with this hosting need an example to put ip (166.62.28.79) at dynadot.com at dns records to connect domain namepros.com with godaddy hosting.

    Who cares? Unless you control the DNS it doesn't matter. You can't redirect traffic or sell the name. EVEN if you could list it for sale, you'd never collect because you couldn't deliver.

    Some bugs are more important than others.

    If Godaddy require verification before before purchasing hosting, changing the domain name; it would created unneeded friction for the end user but accomplish nothing.

    As you said, anyone could modify the html and produce the same results.

    What is the point of this post? How is this a bug? I could do this with Google.com and have the same result.

    This is how it's set up; it's not a bug.

    OK then they've probably taken a bunch of common companies and trademarks that will obviously never host with Godaddy and blacklisted them. If namepros cares they can probably go through the trouble of adding their name to the list but who the heck cares ... god this thread is a waste of time.

    This isn't a bug. You're essentially just adding a virtual host to the various services on your server. You can add any hostname you want; it doesn't even need to be real, though GoDaddy may impose their own arbitrary restrictions.

    It's a bit of a usability issue from the perspective of a GoDaddy customer, but GoDaddy appears to just be exposing the configuration for the underlying services, so it makes sense from a developer's perspective.

    The services running under-the-hood don't know (and don't care) who owns a domain. They're mostly open source and have existed for decades. While this might seem like an issue, generally, it's not--there are no negative consequences when these services "manage" domains they don't actually have the ability to control.

    These underlying configurations make no assertion that you're in control of the domain name. Other computers won't actually be making requests to your services with the assumption that they represent namepros.com unless someone explicitly configures those computers to treat your services as authoritative.

    This is actually an important feature, one that we utilize at NamePros quite often. We have a sizable number of servers across a variety of datacenters, along with a substantial number of service providers. When we switch between providers or servers, we want to be able to do so with zero downtime. To do this, servers and service providers are configured to represent namepros.com before they actually have the real "authority" to do so. This way, when we give them authority, they're ready to go: they're able to handle requests immediately. All we need to do is flip a switch. At NamePros, this happens automatically on a daily basis: when we're receiving more traffic than usual, more servers come online. As the traffic subsides, other servers are automatically taken offline. All this happens without any disruption in service.
