The Champion of Horrible Domain Registrars Strikes Again: GoDaddy Takes Down RateMyCop.com

GoDaddy, long-time champion of taking down domains of websites it doesn’t like, has struck again. This time it has taken down a police watchdog site, RateMyCop.com. As is its usual policy, there is no warning, and the owner wasn’t even informed. The domain is simply redirected to a page on GoDaddy.

GoDaddy is notorious for taking down sites whenever it receives the slightest complaint against it, and has a a long history of acting in this way. Maybe it was jealous that eNom was hogging all the bad publicity and wanted to return to the limelight slimelight.

If your domain is with GoDaddy, or you’re hosted there, better start thinking of alternatives. Unfortunately, it’s really hard to find a good registrar anywhere. But GoDaddy has proven itself to be the bottom of the barrel, with eNom competing to win that distinction as well.
