Go Daddy Gets Gripe Site

Go Daddy gets control of domain name. now owns, Kevin Murphy reports for The Register. was set up as a gripe site after the domain registrar suspended the registration of security mailing list

Since then it has been a gathering place for customers and ex-employees of the world’s largest domain name registrar. They aired their grievances there, often times sending traffic to Domain Name Wire articles about various Go Daddy-related issues.

There have certainly been some legitimate complaints about Go Daddy over the years, and I haven’t been afraid to point out some of the company’s missteps.

But it also attracted some disgruntled ex-employees, including Toby Harris, who sued the company for wage theft. Harris claimed he lost over $1,300 in commissions as a call center rep because his manager claimed his call quality was low. (Many call centers have such rules — it’s easy to earn commissions if you neglect other parts of a customer contact.) Harris even sent out a press release about his initial lawsuit, claiming “ executives deny any wrongdoing.” Except that Go Daddy hadn’t actually commented on the lawsuit.

According to Murphy, Harris had become the top contributor on the site.
