Namecheap.com Donates to Save the Elephants in Response to GoDaddy Elephant Hunt

April 1, 2011 by  

Web Hosting BlogLos Angeles , CA – Namecheap.com, a leading domain registrar based in Los Angeles, has responded to a recent video showing the CEO of GoDaddy shooting at a parade of elephants in Zimbabwe, killing one. Namecheap has offered a domain transfer special offering all of those disturbed by these actions a cost-effective way to transfer their domains to Namecheap.com. Twenty percent of the revenue generated for each domain transfer is being donated to a charity organization, Save The Elephants.

In the past 24 hours, the social media space was up in arms when the discovery of the video surfaced, bringing GoDaddy to trending topics on Twitter. Said one representative of Namecheap. “All of us at Namecheap were very disturbed by this video. Elephants are an endangered species and hunting these for any reason is something we feel strongly against. Feedback from GoDaddy customers also showed they felt strongly about such practices so we have launched a special offer allowing them to move away from GoDaddy. Our domain transfer special allows you to transfer your com/net/org domains out of GoDaddy for $4.99 using coupon code BYEBYEGD and we will donate 20% from each transfer to Save the Elephants.”


The transfer promotion is running for a limited time, ending at 4/1/11 at 11:59pm EST.
