Lets face it. Godaddy sucks! In more ways than one.
I’m trying to move my last two websites (that I started when I was a noob) from Godaddy to my new found glory that is WiredTree hosting. I needed to pay another month for Godaddy hosting to buy myself some time to migrate the files to WiredTree. So I add the hosting and domain renewal to my Godaddy cart, and I realize that there are two additional charges that I can’t “Remove”. They’re the Private Registration that I actually paid to have put on my domains when I was just starting out. What a Ponzi scheme.
The first joke is that Godaddy makes you actually pay for private registration. Second joke is that you can’t easily remove it. I had to call Godaddy and the guy on the phone helped me out. At least they’ve got good customer service going for them. The dude was American and spoke English, so that’s a good sign.
Remove Private Registration
1. Go to http://domainsbyproxy.com
2. Click “My Account”.
3. Sign in using the information that you probably don’t know. I found out my username by searching through my old emails. Your password is just your Godaddy password, so that should be fairly easy.
4. Once you log in, go to “domains” or something and then tick the little box and remove the service. It’s not hard, but definitely harder than just clicking “Remove” in your shopping cart.
