Everyone by now knows of the video in which Bob Parsons hunts an elephant in Zimbabwe. The story has made mainstream news. Along with everything going on PETA has transferred their domains from Go Daddy to Register.com (That was first reported by Andrew at www.domainnamewire.com)
Namecheap came out and sent this email to customers:
It’s not often that we would disagree publicly with a competitor, but we at Namecheap are very disturbed by this video of a competitor killing an elephant for sport. Check out the ABC News Report (Warning: Very Graphic!)
We’ve decided to throw our support behind our Elephant friends by offering domain transfers at a price where we actually lose money.
Show your protest by saying BYEBYEGD again and transfer your domains to Namecheap for $4.99 for the next 24 hours through 11:59pm EST on 3/31/11 (limit 10 per user, valid for all com/net/org domains).
On top of that, we’ll donate $1 for each transfer to Save The Elephants at http://www.savetheelephants.org/
Use coupon code BYEBYEGD and let’s help the Elephants together!
