    The only thing I have with GoDaddy is an SSL certificate. That can be fixed quite easily...
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    I switched from GoDaddy a few months ago to NameCheap and I couldn't be happier.

    Companies such as Pfizer, L’Oreal will support this ass act because they are always looking for ways to try to prevent bogus sites from selling counterfeit goods (ie little blue pill masquerading as Viagra).

    They already have all the ammo they need, but sopa will give them the ability to have websites shut down on their sayso, with no real comeback for anyone falsely accused.

    Just seen a GoDaddy advert on TV - trying to make up for the boycotts?
