Yeah, Godaddy auctioned our personal domains
TL;DR credit card expired with Godaddy. Godaddy auctioned acesubido.com and my wife’s elainojeda.com
Oh well, the situation sucked, a domain name that I kept for a decade, auctioned off just like that. I didn’t keep tabs on such an asset. Luckily my
@acesubido.com email addresses and inbox contained nothing that important.
My wife’s elainojeda.com, also held for a decade, was auctioned off too. That one is more important, she used the
@elainojeda.com gmail quite professionally in her career as a photographer.
You could say that Godaddy has all the legal right to enforce these things since we did sign up and agree to the way the run things. But it doesn’t mean it’s ethical. I regretted belittling all the warning signs on how they run their DNS business, it sucks now that I got to experience the consequences first hand.
With this experience, I’ve currently moved the domains of my wife’s and my parent’s family business to dnsimple.com, and I am loving it. Try it too! The 5USD/month is worth it!
