Request: switch domains away from GoDaddy as part of boycott

Postby sje46 » Fri Dec 23, 2011 5:35 pm UTC

SOPA, as we all know, will have drastic changes to the internet, and although Randall hasn't made a statement on the issue as far as I know, it would mean a lot if xkcd transferred who their domain is registered with. GoDaddy is a large supporter of SOPA, and as such, there is a large movement to boycott them. Info here From what I understand, Stackoverflow, the Cheezburger network and many others has switched domains and the Wikimedia Foundation is thinking about it.
Someone mentioned on reddit that xkcd.com is still registered with GoDaddy, so I figured that I'd bring it up as a possibility. It would be fine if this request were ignored due to any technical or financial difficulties...I just figured it was worth bringing up. Thanks!

While there's nothing against having a thread about it here (and it might well be the best way to alert site ninja davean of the idea), any ideas that you want to go directly to Randall are probably best routed via IRC (#xkcd on the foonetic servers) or by emailing press@xkcd.com with any suggestions, as he doesn't tend to check the forums.

Well then...GoDaddy already dropped their support.
