GoDaddy says limited info standard procedure

GoDaddy has responded to accusations that it was stalling on domain transfers from those leaving over SOPA.

Namecheap says GoDaddy breaking ICANN rules

Domain registrar Namecheap accused GoDaddy on Monday of blocking attempts to move domains away after protest defections over GoDaddy's initial support for the Stop Online Piracy Act. The company claimed that GoDaddy was sending incomplete domain information, making it difficult to switch. It was allegedly violating ICANN rules, which Namecheap took as a sign that the mass domain switches were having a genuine effect.
