    I didn't say that. I said I get domains at other places, like Snapnames, Namejet etc. and they go to registrars I don't like. When I can transfer out, I do to GoDaddy.

    And it does matter if you're new because you're trying to inform me of a registrar I've used for 10+ years? I know exactly how it works, I know my own experience with them.

    There are many well know issues at GD I brought some of them in my previous post:
    My biggest complaint is their domain pushing system, it is a nightmare to deal with especially when you do bulk deals.

    I spent once all day to receive 60+ domains from a domainer, and received something like 300+ redundant emals from GD in the process!

    I haven't seen a reg fee at $99 I am sure I have logged in without account never seen it that high. Is $99 your exaggeration in order to misrepresent?

    What do I dont like about Godaddy? Well the DDC thing, paying for the privacy,due to having too many staff , sometimes getting different responses to the same problems. Their phone support being terrible. Shall I continue? I can find more but lets say those are the main problems.

    Why does it worth? Do you get like 8 renewal for .com, 9 for net org? Does DDC give you free privacy?

    Talking about auctions, GD is the only platform that charges auction yearly subscription, I don't mind paying it because it is cheap $4.99 per year. But I do mind paying $4.99 each time I want to add reserve to my auction!!

    I've never paid for the reserve. You could just start the auction at your Reserve price.

    I don't mind. I start mine at what I want so that's free, if the $4.99 an issue. You do have choices.

    Even the $4.99 annual fee for auctions is questionable, but i'll bite... It's worth it

    but all these fees; $99 a year, $9.99 privacy, $4.99 auction, more money reserve it's crazy.

    Unless you have 500 ofc. i wonder why you dont see anything wrong with that? :xf.wink:

    Many people do want privacy, I insist to have privacy enabled on all my domains, because in the past I received tons of spam emails because of not having privacy enabled.. it was really very bad experience to me that ruined one of the emails that I use, now I rarely open that email because it is full of spam lol

    Some require privacy for safety; people going to your house... Yes, there have been stories, rather get the best of both worlds;
    privacy offers that, plus a way to reach me.

    Also remember that most or registrar's make few cents on each domain. It is not easy to keep quality (website+support) while being bombarded with questions why you do not sell .com for 8.03 like XX registrar.

    Every domain I own is related to marketing and webmasters I am the target. Sure I get spam but buyer verifies I am real everyone here is asking others to help find decision makers well here I am.

    I can still sell if I have privacy and I do really, so not having privacy because it might hinder sales is not an excuse. Spam will always come. I get it with Privacy enabled too at some Registrars, but it is different when your name is not there at least not to mention the contact details.

    Brad, you are way smarter than this. Godaddy has the most number of customers and most domains, but that is not an excuse. It's like you are saying that China has the biggest population, so it's normal to treat most people bad and have the most complaints. Or as well, facebook should have thousands of complains a day, because they have the vast majority of the market and hundreds of millions of users. It's pretty easy, check the issues for a random 100 transfers at godaddy and compare with a random 100 transfers at namesilo, epik, dynadot. The same you can do for a random 100 everything: payments, auctions, hand regs, customers service, pushes and so on, the difference in the number of issues is huge, but for some particular reason, which I can't figure it out, you have decided to close your eyes. It's like saying: 'because I have a privileged relation with them, doesn't matter how they really are or how they are treating the rest of 99% of their customers, it's important how they treat me and I will defend them, no matter what.' Probably the same thing are thinking the elite 1% from North Korea, that for them it's the best country in the world, doesn't matter how they treat the rest of them.
