  • Nice… Godaddy is the most stupid company out there.. I love inmotionhosting… So inmotion should think about adding not .com but domain for countries because thats the only reason why Im still stuck with godaddy which I hate

    • Happy to hear that you’re having a positive experience with us, Chris! It’s mostly an issue of legality, as we don’t have any offices or employees in the relevant countries that would allow us to sell those other domains, but if it ever becomes feasible we’d like to add them to what we offer!

  • GoDaddy requires that you enter a different IP for each of your nameservers. I only have one IP… This information is outdated.
