    ICANN Strives to Stop GoDaddy and Others from Domain Name Abuse - GoDaddy

    (Page 2 of 4 )

    GoDaddy is also a force to be reckoned with. It has earned recognition as one of the fastest-growing technology companies in Arizona between the years of 2003 to 2005. It's an Internet domain registrar as well as a web hosting company. GoDaddy also sells other Internet software and services. Originally known as Jomax Technologies, Bob Parsons founded this Internet domain registrar company in 1997. Prior to founding Jomax Technologies/GoDaddy, Parsons had founded another software development company, Parsons Technology, Incorporated.

    Although GoDaddy.com is a major entity, it belongs to a bigger group, the GoDaddy group. The GoDaddy group consists of Wild West Domains and Blue Razor. The GoDaddy group is national with offices in the following states: Colorado, Arizona, Washington D.C., and Iowa.

    As previously mentioned, GoDaddy is a force to be reckoned with. For one, as of April, 2005, it's the largest global ICANN-accredited domain registrar. Network Solutions owned the number one status up until this time. But GoDaddy has taken over, and now owns the market share, when it comes to domain names that are registered.

    GoDaddy's growth can be attributed to two factors. First, GoDaddy offers lower prices. Second, GoDaddy aggressively develops and markets its product line. It also sells other services, including website design and hosting packages.

    Like ICANN, GoDaddy also has its hands in the political arena. In Washington D.C., the domain registrar company participates in activities that involve the Internet. One of the causes that GoDaddy has gotten involved with is legislation to go after corrupt online child predators and pharmacies.

    If you have a domain with GoDaddy, and you're thinking about sending out spam, you better think twice. GoDaddy will not tolerate it. It's known for fining customers if they're accused of spamming or violating its other policies. Unfortunately, customers are not given any options to dispute the allegations. Instead, GoDaddy requires customers to pay a $199 fine in order to stay with the company. Or customers can pay a $75 administrative fee and initiate a transfer within 24 hours to another host and domain registrar. If customers refuse to choose these prior options, then GoDaddy can suspend customers' domains. Customers then cannot transfer domains until they expire. That's if they don't pay for the domains first.
