    Fornite,

    It's personal choice - Why are you concerned where people choose to register the name?
    Let move on and spend time to make money instead of spending time on this thread.

    This is what I was trying to say, but unfortunately the "privileged" will not see that...They will justify themselves while turning a blind eye on the reality. Discrimination all over the world in every aspects.

    There are a bunch of analogies that are not really applicable.

    All I am saying is GoDaddy is the largest registrar by a wide margin. Of course they are going to have more issues. It is simply law of averages.

    I have had plenty of negative things to say about GoDaddy over the years via forums, blogs, etc. There are certainly things that could be improved.

    Overall though, on balance, I am largely satisfied with them.

    If you are not happy with their products or services, luckily there are endless other options.

    Get over yourself. Not everyone is going to see it the same way you do.

    I deal basically 100% with end users. The vast majority of end users tend to use GoDaddy, or at least have an account there. It adds a lot less friction to a transaction than using some obscure registrar that people have never heard of.

    All these analogies are applicable, because they work the same, one big entity and some other smaller one's. The law of averages it's applicable mostly to all, specially I mentioned the random 100 transfer/pushes/customer service issues and so on. This is the best average, not the average of happy customers who use godaddy for 10-15 years, who have their own representative, who use discount club, who have made lot's of deals with them when they were smaller and now godaddy are taking care of them. The average is mostly about the 99% who don't want/can't benefit from the special privileges. Try an experiment: try to find the last 100 threads where somebody has sold a domain at godaddy and tried to do a basic push( end users or resellers) and than do the same for epik, namesilo, dynadot. I can tell you before you will do it, that it will be a huge, vast difference in the numbers of issues. We are not even talking about customer service and others. You are acting now exactly how BB ambassadors were defending BB when there were issues, without admitting that the rest of people were having real issues. Now, most of them are gone, using some other marketplaces and didn't cared when they were defending them. I understand that you want to keep your special privileges, because they will not be special, if less and less people will use them in the future, but that means that you are directing the newbies to a hole, just to make sure that your life will be easier for you.

    I avoid GoDaddy at all costs and move any names out as soon as its allowed. End users use them due to name recognition not because they have superior anything. I don’t trust them and don’t support any monopoly.

    So its quite simple- I keep my names where I want to and people who have bought my names can transfer wherever they want.Its really very simple an not worth the bickering going on in this thread. If they want your name they will buy it no matter where it is.

    Thank goodness we have many choices with better service,prices and actual innovation that are domainer friendly.

    Yep, the GoDaddy push process leaves a lot to be desired. I agree.

    At the same time it is less of a hurdle for me to overcome with end users than introducing some registrar they have never heard of.

    I am a brand ambassador? That is amusing.

    I am not directing anyone to do anything. I couldn't care less what registrar people use.

    If you don't like GoDaddy fine, then pick a different option that better suits your needs.

    It's not an accusation, it's nothing negative, it's just that you are defending somebody, without checking all the facts, how they deal for everybody. You are talking just about your experience, US based, selling to US customers. Did you ever tried to contact godaddy from Europe? It takes days to contact them and get an answer. Probably it will be the same from China, Middle East and most other places. You are saying that a customer from Indonesia, Japan, Australia, South Africa, Switzerland, France and I could go on with hundreds of other places, will ask to have the domains at godaddy? Believe me, at least 99% of european customers don't care about godaddy. Probably you sell for bigger amounts than other domainers, because you have started earlier, but I sell for less, but to lots of customers and I don't have the same experience as you. I have a few good hundreds end user sales in the last years and over 1K reseller sales and as far as I can remember, only one asked specially to move it to godaddy and even for him, it took 14 days to finalize the transfer, because godaddy was sending the confirmation email to the wrong email. I can point out a few experienced domainers, some with over 20-30k domains, and lot's with 5-6-9k domains, who are not using godaddy as registrar, who are not using their landing pages, who are not happy with their services and they don't talk to much about end users requesting to have the domains at godaddy. Defending them when they are bad, it's like you don't want them to get better. Everybody wants to have a lot of options, including godaddy(probably because of they inventory), but in the same time some of us want them better and for them to respect all customers, not just some. From my experience, 90% of end users will want to move the domain to their preferred registrar, no matter if it's big or small, and they will not care for a push to another registrar.

    I was a member of the distinguished and had a personal account manager, and a client for over 10 years, and they still did that to me :(
