GoDaddy Lost 70k Domains Last Week

It looks like GoDaddy is trying to prevent its customers from leaving by throwing a monkey wrench into the domain name transfer process.

"GoDaddy appears to be returning incomplete Whois information to Namecheap, delaying the transfer process" in violation of rules established by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, NameCheap wrote in a blog post today. By this afternoon, the company said that GoDaddy had "finally unblocked our queries" and that transfers should now "go smoothly."
