Don’t Trust GoDaddy!


Like the title says… Don’t trust GoDaddy!

As many know, I have been increasing interested in addicted to purchasing pre-owned domains.

Yesterday, I decided to give GoDaddy Auctions a try.
I paid their $4.99/year fee, and found a $10 domain to bid on.
Before I made the bid, I looked up the Whois for the domain.
Note the expiration date is 02/04/2010.

I won the auction (only bidder).
At checkout, an extra $10.89 was required to renew the expired domain. That’s right… expired!

Nowhere was I notified that the domain had expired.
Buying an expired domain means (1) you have to pay to renew it, and (2) the original owner can take it back up to 42 days after it expired.

I called their support, who basically told me Too Bad.
And I have just contacted email support.
However, I do not expect a much better response.

Email support was actually worse.

I am transferring all my domains at GoDaddy to somewhere else.
And won’t give GoDaddy, or should I say NoDaddy, another cent.

This lesson cost me $25.88, but I’m giving it to you for free.


Not really back. But, hi!

1. Good news for Butters.
His limp went away that same day, and
My roommate sold him to someone with 2 other dogs, and a huge yard.

2. If you have linked me, and I don’t have your link up.
Please let me know!

How are you all?!
I hope you’re well. I am still very, very busy.
But, I wanted to take the time to blog.

Am I crazy?
I guess I thought managing college, work, free hosting, and 3 other websites wasn’t enough. I decided to start a hosting company. Some of you already know what it is, but others will just have to wonder  wink

My roommate got a pitbull.
He named him “Playa”.
But, I call him “Butters”, because he is a really light tan.
The dog doesn’t like my cat, Hobbs (who turned 7 months today).
So, we had to move all Hobbs’ stuff to the spare room.

Time to move.
Hobbs isn’t happy being restricted to his room, and our bedroom.
And I am not happy with the smell of Butters.
So, me and my boyfriend are going to be moving soon.

Animal neglect.
I feel extremely bad for the pitbull.
We don’t have a yard.
My roommate keeps him in this little cage in the living room.
The only time Butters is let out of the cage is to eat, drink, or be walked.
And, of course, I let him out the cage when I’m home.

The dude doesn’t even care about the dog.
He never plays with him. And he only feeds/walks him when the dog starts barking and whimpering. Now, Butters is limping. Well, hopping. He won’t put pressure on his back leg, and starts whimpering if you touch it.
My boyfriend thinks it’s from being cramped in that cage. But, who knows?
Butters needs to see a vet. And if my roommate doesn’t make that happen soon, the Humane Society’s phone will be ringing :|
