Ok IMHO its insanely dumb
We all know they used to give free private registration when you bought 5 or more domains, well as of yesterday apparently they have stopped that.
Now while I assume they have got a good reason for it, they have just lost me as a customer and while I am sure they have clients with more domains than mine, it still will hit me pretty hard.
So off to namecheap who cost a little but more but you get free privacy with one domain, or maybe they will ditch that too.
Now I have a Godaddy "executive" who looks after my account, who is only in Mon-Fri and have sent him an email asking considering how many domains i have with them whether I can still have it free.
If not, time to start asking competitors how cheap they will give me transfers for 100's of domains
Then off to change my blog and send out an email to my subscribers to tell them I no longer recommend GoDaddy
