"It's not often that we would disagree publicly with a competitor, but we at Namecheap are very disturbed by this video of a competitor killing an elephant for sport.
We've decided to throw our support behind our Elephant friends by offering domain transfers at a price where we actually lose money.
Show your protest by saying BYEBYEGD again and transfer your domains to Namecheap for $4.99 for the next 24 hours through 11:59pm EST on 3/31/11 (limit 10 per user, valid for all com/net/org domains).
On top of that, we'll donate $1 for each transfer to Save The Elephants at Save the Elephants - Home
Use coupon code BYEBYEGD and let's help the Elephants together!"
It seems like a lot of people are moving their domain names away from Godaddy to NameCheap after this episode. NameCheap seems to add in the fuel to the fire by offering a steep discount coupon.
Is that a smart move by NameCheap?
