GoDaddy: Either goes, or I do

This is an email I sent to [email protected] today.

Hello, GoDaddy:

You provide registrar services to The Daily Stormer (DailyStormer dot com), which today published a piece shaming the victim of yesterday’s terrorist attack in Charlottesville and stating that she deserved to be murdered. Her name was Heather Heyer.

According to the terms of your own service agreement, DailyStormer dot com is in violation of standards of decency. This is clearly stated in Section 5 of your Universal Terms of Service Agreement, Subsection iii:

You will not use this Site or the Services in a manner (as determined by GoDaddy in its sole and absolute discretion) that:

  • Is illegal, or promotes or encourages illegal activity; [or]
  • Promotes, encourages or engages in terrorism, violence against people, animals, or property;

Since is clearly promoting illegal activity (murder) and terrorism, there is a clear violation of your standards.

If you do not terminate your relationship with them, I will be moving the many domain names I have registered with you to another service provider that has a stronger sense of decency.

William Kowalski
