Brent Oxley sold his hosting company for $300 million and bought some ultra premium domain names which were Give.com for $500,000, Broker.com for $375,000, and Texas.com for $1,007,500.

However Oxley has lost access to a proportion of his portfolio after GoDaddy locked 25 domain names as a result of a lawsuit filed by an Indian domainer.

The most premium name in this locked portfolio is Create.com

Hopefully, Brent gets all of the domain unlocked and kick the Godaddy.

I will never ever going to have a domain with GoDaddy.

I think if there is a legal problem, the domain can be locked from any registrar.

There is no such legal issue here. There is nothing proved here that a registrar can Lock anyone's domain name.

It is very sad😥 Then it can be said, Godaddy shouldn't have locked the domains.

Hi

he still has access, just can't change anything for those names that are still with gd
namecheap has different policy than GD, which the filing took advantage of.
and that was reason for move.

so, suggest you read the tos, where your names are regged.

imo...

I do and have but these is so much legalese.

What a disaster. I recently moved ALL of my domains away from one web host, as my account was being targeted. They kept locking out the account and I couldn't get back in. It was just crazy.

You mean GD?

I was fearful of this happening with the cancel culture going on today and operating online communities.

I'm still in the transition of moving my hosting solutions to Sibyl, an Epik service, as this popped out at me: "DMCA IGNORED".

Now, while I will still enforce and protect other people's IP, it gives me time to react and not someone else to pull the plug on a whim as looks to be the case in this situation with GoDaddy and potentially yours with your hosting.

I don't want to take it too far off-topic here as this is about GoDaddy and this debacle, but you never know if the plug will be pulled on everything when you're hosting two right-leaning forums. 🤷‍♂️
