[ale] My experiences switching GoDaddy to GreenGeeks



    Suggested Actions List For Migration of Service
1. Disconnect user from all services with no notice2. Say
"MUWHAHAHAHA!" repeatedly.3. Laugh about "teach that one a lesson" at
lunch
End Of Form
Ranks up there with the domain renewal nightmare for LocalNetSolutions.
Domain renewal was "tuesday". Logged in mid afternoon, forked over
credit card, renewed domain. Got notice from card of purchase. Got
notice from GoDaddy of transfer. "New" owner wanted $10k to hand it
back. GoDaddy would do NOTHING. Once I sent the credit card statement
that listed the purchase as RNWL, they finally refunded my charge
amount. Lost my business domain name.

Every time you stop a school, you will have to build a jail. What you
gain at one end you lose at the other. It's like feeding a dog on his
own tail. It won't fatten the dog.
