There is some speculation whether this will lead to other domain name registration sites also being put up for sale.

Google can buy godaddy and with it they will get instant access to the whois info that is currently hidden under the privacy protection service.

Doesn't Google already have the ability to see private info being a registrar themselves or do they need to buy Godaddy to see those domains?

lol. Don't even raise that spectre. Can you imagine if Google bought that and had access to all the private whois?

they hate Go Daddy. From all big players Go Daddy has the best value in that industry not only as domain registrar but web hosting provider as well!

No... that's what they want you to believe. I was a GoDaddy user on the belief they were the cheapest. How wrong I was....

I am surprised people still use GoDaddy, there are other alternatives that are up to 30% cheaper. FYI GoDaddy charges a FORTUNE for whoisprivacy, you can get that for free or $1-3/year at other registrars. I now use namec****. ;)

All i can say is that I hope a reputable company buys them. They're nothing but a bunch of site scraping thieves. I've busted them so many times scraping content from our site to serve up their domain pages, it makes me sick.

This GoDaddy coupon discounts often come out hope it is not through increased value of His company for sale.

I quite like simplynames, they give you quite a bit of direct control including DNS, and support has always been pretty good. The only downside is their renew prices are a little more expensive than most. But you can haggle them to a much better price.
