GoDaddy - Domain name ripoff

Posted: 2014-06-25 by    spacelouis
Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
They canceled one of my
domains that was up for auto renew even though my credit card onfile is good.
They never called or emailed to let me know they were canceling it and all the
sudden today, I received an Email from them saying it was canceled.

I spoke to support for a
while and they couldn't figure it out. They said they left me 3 voice messages
which I never got and Emailed me cancellation notices which I never got. Even
though I receive everything else from them, including a notice last month
stating that the domain would...

GoDaddy - Renewal pricing

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
My domain name was coming up for renewal and I had received an email from GoDaddy telling me the same. One hour and thirty minutes after I renewed it online through the GoDaddy website, I received another email offering me a 45% discount to renew my domain name.

I contacted the GoDaddy Customer Service and asked to have the discount applied to my renewal (which would have saved me a little more than $25) but they refused and claimed that once the order had processed, they were helpless to make any adjustments.

I asked what would happen if they (GoDaddy) had some how...

They are not providing me the correct details of their Name Server, I had called their customer care number 3 times, but they are not able to solve my issue.

This is the worst company I have ever seen. Once they took the money then there is no response from their side.

GODADDY SUCKS!!! HORRIBLE customer service. "Don't care" "take it or get took attitude" absolutely the worst business experience EVER!
I bought a domain and website hosting service from them. Two days later I get an email saying "Scan over your Government I.D." to
verify that you actually bought this. I've bought lots of things -including houses and cars- online, and have never been asked to
scan over my actual driver's license or passport! I thought it was a phishing scam, so I ignored it. Then a day later when I went to

Unhappy customer from India: hi, i transfered 3 domains and bought hosting for them with go daddy 3 weeks back. Installed wordpress on all 3 and started building my small business website on the primary domain. 10 days back i tried to login to my 2nd domain and couldn't. Called Godaddy Support who asked me to uninstall and reinstall WP. I checked twice if this will effect my primary domain work in progress and i was assured that it won't. The agent stayed online to guide me thru the uninstall and reinstall. This process has now wiped off the content from my primary domain. We have no back...

GoDaddy - Fraud

Posted: 2012-05-17 by    gulliver
Complaint Rating:  100 % with 2 votes
As someone who has used them for 5+ years and spent thousands of dollars (for dozens of domains and services) I can say that GoDaddy (henceforth “GD”) is the Wal-Mart of Internet hosts; only, one that lives up—and then some—to the hysterical denunciations its opponents levy against it.
Where to begin?

Well first off, GD’s debut on the scene—their initial “offering” to would-be customers—involved a suggestive Candice Miller’s enormous breasts. That ought to tell you the demo they’re shooting for.

Godaddy's checkout had a glitch that did not display a correct purchase properly. Thus I was billed two one year subscriptions for the same domain for which, if I wanted a two year subscription it would have cost less thasn two one year subscriptions "bought" within 10 seconds of each other. They did not refund the surplus saying that they have no glitch and I agreed to the terms and conditions, they did not even offer to refund the difference between the cost of two one year subscriptions and the lower cost of one two year subscription (nor did I ask as I wanted a full refund for...

GoDaddy - False notification of domain expiration

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
GoDaddy sent a domain name expiration notice for a domain name that was not expiring. I logged onto the account and it showed the name had expired so I renewed it (in a panic). Ten days later, our business manager noticed we had paid for multiple years the last time we renewed it. When we contacted GoDaddy, they said nothing could be done about it. They refused to refund the money saying we had to cancel within 5 days of the renewal. They have refused to acknowledge their action of sending false information caused the problem. Perhaps this is standard operating procedure of GoDaddy? Watch out for...

Godaddy.com WEB HOSTING and DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION is a total HOAX!!! The domain names we registered with godaddy - which they said were available were in use...the WEBSITE TONIGHT they claimed we would have online that evening because it was so easy to setup-never worked right!
They talk you into protecting your domain names in case someone steals them, this is the biggest HOAX of all. The protection they are offering, that you do not have to show a Federal EIN or DBA registration, can only be cancelled if you have a Federal EIN or registered DBA...when they are scaring you into purchasing...

GoDaddy - credit card harvesting

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
GoDaddy is one of the worse domain and hosting companies in America. The company I work for stopped using GoDaddy after we noticed GoDaddy was harvesting our credit card details to add unauthorized charges to the cards.

The company, my employer, had been a customer of GoDaddy's for several years and had various orders and charges with the company on different charge cards and accounts. Whenever they tried to cancel a product or service, they faced problems with GoDaddy. GoDaddy's customer support is the worse imaginable and does not provide any help. As an option the features...

GoDaddy - Registration RIPPOFF

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
I think GoDaddy ARE a RipOff, I have hundreds of domains with numerous registrars and GoDaddy is the only site that seems to be designed to trip you up. The site is always trying to sell you things you don't need and it uses language that would confuse new users making them think they were obligated to take certain services.

I would also WARN potential customers that GoDaddy has some RIPOFF terms and conditions and is really inflexible.

I had a domain due to expire in July 2010, I logged into the GoDaddy portal and requested a password to transfer it to another...
