Fullerton, CA, February 4, 2013 – Hands-on Web Hosting, a leading provider of cPanel shared, VPS, dedicated, e-commerce and cloud based hosting solutions, today launched a special promotion at the request of numerous users of GoDaddy in response to their distasteful Super Bowl 2013 commercial.
Within minutes of GoDaddy’s Super Bowl commercial airing, social media sites Twitter, Google+ and Facebook were flooded with comments, most of them negative. While their latest commercial went viral, generating more than 6.5 million views on YouTube within the first 24 hours, the reaction from the general public has been less than positive. Consequently, Hands-on Web Hosting has received several requests from users to transfer their domain name and web hosting away from GoDaddy.
“The saying goes, ‘There’s no such thing as bad publicity’, but when your clients start to terminate services due to a publicity stunt, that’s probably not a good thing,” said Conor Treacy, CEO of Hands-on Web Hosting. “Super Bowl commercials have had a long tradition of being funny or smart, but this one was neither,” he said.
Due to the outcry, Hands-on Web Hosting has released a special promotion for users of
GoDaddy that want to escape – buy 3 months web hosting, get a free 1-year domain transfer! To take advantage of this promotion, use the coupon code “GROSS
” (GoDaddy’s Really Offensive Superbowl Sale) at checkout.
The staff at Hands-on Web Hosting will also transfer (migrate) user’s website files to the new location at no additional cost. Visit them at http://www.handsonwebhosting.com
