Default 21,000 domains transfer out of Go Daddy in 1 day

Yesterday, Go Daddy actually reversed course and dropped its support for the controversial legislation. "Go Daddy will support it when and if the Internet community supports it," Go Daddy CEO Warren Adelman announced in a statement.

SOPA, introduced in Congress this fall, would make it easier for the Justice Department to shut down sites allegedly dedicated to piracy.

An anti-Go Daddy thread on social site Reddit led to the creation of Godaddyboycott.org, a site set up to let people amass their disapproval with the company's support of SOPA.

The best way to show corporations that your not happy with them, is hit them in the metrics that they watch and use to gauge how good or bad they are doing. I bet this one hit Go Daddy pretty hard.
