Tom Cheredar, at Venturebeat:
Hosting and domain registrar company Go Daddy has lost more than 37,000 domains in the past two days due to the company's wishy-washy stance on the Stop Online Piracy Act.
They could have been more careful here; did VB interview these customers (even a survey of a few percent of them) to determine the reason behind their transfer(s)? If so they don't say they did.
If you click through the VentureBeat story to their source, you'll find Michael H. Berkens noting:
It should be noted that on Thursday more domains were transferred into Godaddy.com (17,000) than left the registrar.
And their source reports about domaincontrol (GoDaddy):
It is listed as a nameserver for 32,177,969 domains and is listed as the primary nameserver for 32,159,050 domains.
So, 37K/32M = 0.00115625, or 0.1% of GoDaddy domains. Is that a trend?
