Anyone had any luck with GoDaddy Abuse Complaints?

by UMS 4 replies
I discovered a site that had ripped off one of my reviews (100% copy with the only change being that they dropped in their affiliate link)

The site is hosted by GoDaddy, so I was planning on putting an abuse complain in, but after doing a bit of hunting around, I can't see any specific contact for abuse complaints (I can only find the page for reporting spam).

I also saw a lot of pages/comments saying GoDaddy ignore abuse complaints.

Anyone had a positive experience with getting GoDaddy to act?

    I dont think hosting providers will take any action particularly popular hosts like Godaddy.

    Thanks

    Thanks jaiganeshv.

    I'll try that route.

    BTW, I have had very prompt action in the past from various hosting providers (none of which were GoDaddy) with abuse complaints.

      Yes i think small hosting providers want to grow and be safe and they dont want to trouble with infringments and hence their taking actions..

      Biggies like Godaddy i think they are busy in offering discounts and coupons and making returning sales from its customers whom they are not ready to drop off.

      Thanks

    Send Godaddy a DMCA. They have to act on DMCAs
