Go Daddy points out opposition to SOPA when you try to unlock your domain

Yesterday was MoveYourDomainDay, and while we don’t know how effective of a boycott it was, we do know that Go Daddy has lost more customers than usual in the past week.

Even though Go Daddy has more domain name transfers coming in than it has going out, the company still wants to remind you that it opposes SOPA every chance they get.

Before you can move your domain, you must unlock it with Go Daddy. When you try to do so, you’re welcomed with a message and link:

The link goes to Go Daddy CEO Warren Adelman’s statement from yesterday:

Go Daddy opposes SOPA because the legislation has not fulfilled its basic requirement to build a consensus among stake-holders in the technology and Internet communities. Our company regrets the loss of any of our customers, who remain our highest priority, and we hope to repair those relationships and win back their business over time.

While Go Daddy might be seeing a lot of domains being transferred to it, the ones leaving them can do unknown monetary damage, since it’s not known how many times those domains would have been renewed while managed by Go Daddy.
