Your question was: Is Godaddy good for hosting?.
"The ICANN Board of Directors adopted two resolutions expected to eliminate HostGator tasting altogether. First, ICANNs per HostGator name fee, will be assessed to all new HostGator names regardless of whether the registration is dropped five days earlier. The second motion prevents gTLD registries from granting a refund to registrars under the five - day grace period if they delete more than 10% of their new registrations during any month. "..
I asked support of Snapnames and they replied:.
"The ICANN imposed tasting fee has forced us to reconsider the acquisition of such names. There is a high probability that we will no longer be able to offer such names at the reduced price. If this changes we will inform our customers.".
And what now we can do? Majority of names now go to the most hated ENOM. What they will do with all these names? It's also interesting what now becomes with prices of LLLL.coms. Previously low-end prices were dictated by low-end at Snapnames.
I think Snapnames can still catch all LLLL.com names because they are all bought out from auctions always..
Good information there guys, thanks. Ergo, you raise a good point about the value of 4l.coms possibly going up. For a while you could actually get some 4L's from snap for less than $30. I doubt namejet is going to reduce their starting prices below $69. So...who is going to pay $69 for zkvj? Could this possibly force enom to reduce starting bids or will they just sit on all the names that are going to drop and keep things at 69?..
May be perhaps ENOM is still tasting LLLL.coms? Nobody even tried to backorder low-end LLLL.coms at NameJet but they still went to them. What will be the future of such domains. Should we expect them at NameJet public auctions after tasting? Or ENOM will hold thousands of LLLL.coms for themselves?..
