I got this in an email from GD with some kind of 'early-bird' offer...
Went in the bin..

They've been doing something like this for a while. Total ripoff ;-)

They talk about Partners. Do they mean Google? Of perhaps they have a deal with Overture?

No, I seem to have got this wrong. It would appear that the charges are on the Portfolio or at least per 100 domains. It is all as clear as mud at the moment.

I am guessing they are taking this approach as they don't wish to adminster parking for the millions of domains at GD that ain't worth Jack Sh*t. It would seem that they are just looking to skim the cream.

No mention of IDN so we clearly wouldn't fit their definition of cream!

Actually they seem to be aiming at a One Stop Shop:

Regs
Drops
Auctions
Parking
Hosting
etc.

Just a shame they don't seem to do any of it well!

They do have great customer service. You can call and speak to someone unlike companies like Enom with a customer service entirely web based.

You gotta be kidding. Godaddy is known everywhere as one of the worst registrars that does sneaky things.
