Website Hosting Alternatives to GoDaddy
In response to a video that surfaced of GoDaddy’s CEO, Bob Parsons, killing an elephant and then celebrating it, GreenHostIt is offering a discount to anyone who is disturbed by the video and a way to move their domain and hosting to a green web hosting provider.
Twitter and Facebook users are up in arms about the video of Bob Parsons, the CEO of GoDaddy, that went viral. Bob Parsons posted the video after a March 2011 hunting trip to Africa. The video shows him shooting and killing an elephant. Then, he posed with it, and even included footage of local visitors chopping the elephant’s body up while wearying “Go Daddy” hats to the tune of “Hells Bells”.
