Like many others, we at Gotham City Drupal decided we could no longer support GoDaddy after learning of their stand on SOPA (fake-retracted though it may be). So on December 24, we moved all our DNS (20 domain names), hosting (3 servers) and numerous email and other myriad services to http://namecheap.com, which company has aggressively come out against SOPA.

We are happy to report a smooth transition was effected, with virtually no associated downtime. We are very happy with namecheap so far. And, December 29th is the official Move Your Domain Day, so we strongly encourage any of you who may have waited to jump in now. We can tell you from experience, the water's fine.

GoDaddy's rampant sexism and ceaseless shilling has been a thorn in our collective side for a very long time, so this was a change that was a long time coming, regardless of their stand on SOPA. Nevertheless, we feel that their original SOPA position reveals the company in its truest light.
