GoDaddy Class Action Lawsuit – Private Registration
We Said It’s Free, But We Didn’t Really Mean It
A Florida company has filed a class action lawsuit against domain registrar, claiming it illegally charges for private registration services it advertises as free.
The GoDaddy class action lawsuit takes aim at the company’s practice of offering free private registration to customers when they register five or more domain names at a time. The class action lawsuit says GoDaddy does not make it clear that the whois proxy services offered as “Domains by Proxy” will renew at the full regular price rather than for free.
“By suggesting that the value of ‘FREE’ Private Registration was $9.99/yr, and that the ‘FREE’ service had ‘NO LIMIT!’, GoDaddy represented that the ‘FREE’ Private Registration services would be for the lifetime of the domain name, and Plaintiff (and on information and belief, the Class) believed this to be the case,” the class action lawsuit says. http://www.topclassactions.com/index.php?start=104
People, people, people, use this NameCheap coupon code. You get BOTH a domain name and free privacy registration for under $10. Privacy renews at only $2.88/yr thereafter. Beats GoDaddy’s $9.99/yr, huh.
