Thought you were having a bad day? Disgruntled domain owners filed class action lawsuits against Go Daddy in Arizona and Arkansas today over the PPC ads it displays on customers’ domains. These advertisements appear only when the domain is parked at Go Daddy or no name servers have been set up.
Matthew McBride, the representative of the domain owners, states that he registered four domains with the company and is upset that it placed advertisements on them without his authorisation.
Currently Go Daddy, as well as many other registers, display these PPC ads on domains without consent of the owners. Personally, I think McBride has a genuine complaint and am glad he’s raising the issue. No registrar should be able to use customer property like this for profit.
