Today is the official day of the year that has been deemed as "Dump GoDaddy Day." This move is massively due in part by GoDaddy's vocal support of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), and then recanting that support due to the public outcry of thousands of customers.

GoDaddy users are being urged to switch to a different provider in a boycott of sorts to help damage the bottom-line and reputation of the world's leading vendor in .coms.

Are you a GoDaddy user? Will you be switching? I must say, being a GoDaddy customer myself, it's awfully tempting.

Update: Apparently, Namecheap is actually starting their own "move day", conveniently titled "MoveYourDomainDay." They are offering transfers for only $6.99 with the coupon code "SOPASucks." The funny part of this is that the first how-to link they posted following the article is also titled "How to transfer a domain from GoDaddy."

To read more about their efforts you can click this link.

I'm actually thinking this might be a good move. Namecheap, here I come.
