silly Republicans - should have registered that domain out of china then it would have remained online!

Those sites are all registered on GoDaddy.com to Jason Flanary, the chief operating officer of ccAdvertising. Flanary, a Republican, ran for the Virginia state Senate in 2011 but lost.

I think I may begin to see why his campaign was unsuccessful...

"Obama endorses the legality of same-sex marriage. Say No to Obama at the polls on Nov 6!" read another.

Regardless of your position, that is a horribly worded pitch.

So if I vote for Obama does that mean I am agreeing to marry him?

I actually kind of like them. Their customer service is responsive, AND it was super easy to cancel when I no longer need them. Try having that conversation with AT&T some time. It's like breaking up with that chick from Fatal Attraction.

Godaddy is a Domain Registrar primarily, they offer web hosting the same way a supermarket offers impulse-buy items in the checkout lanes.

If your site is important, and you want real professional support I'd humbly suggest LiquidWeb.

Until they fark something up that should be easily resolved. Then you get to experience first hand what the10th circle of Hell is like.

Yeah, in fairness, I've never used them for anything where uptime was critical. I've only used them for vanity projects. Nothing that generates income.

I've had pretty good luck with Gandi.net -- they're a domain registrar but also do VPS and "Simple Hosting". The VPS hosting is pretty much what you'd expect: Xen virtualization with some extra little options. The "Simple Hosting" is sort of a cool hybrid between shared hosting and a full VPS: unlike shared hosting, you get dedicated resources (e.g. a dedicated Apache instance, a variable number of PHP threads depending on the size of the plan you get, and some other stuff) while like shared hosting they handle all the system upgrades and maintenance for you. Pretty slick. You can scale resources to your Simple Hosting and VPSs as needed, as both services are "virtualized".

They have space at datacenters in Baltimore, Maryland and Paris, France, all with good connectivity.

One nice thing about their domain registration: they offer "private registration" included with the price (other registrars charge extra for it) and they include your first and last name in the registration records, even when made private, so there's no question that you own the domain. They do obfuscate the mailing address, email address, and telephone number so you don't get innundated with spam and junk mail from senders that harvest whois.

/paid customer, uses their Simple Hosting and VPSs for various purposes. Has several domains registered there. Otherwise has no financial interest in the company.

This joker tried to run against Dave Marsden. Obnoxious robocalls is his MO.

PS nobody is going to vote for you because you harassed them with a robocall or a text message.

The FCC issued a public notice aimed specifically at political campaigns prohibiting this sort of text messaging (see final paragraph and end note 5). GoDaddy's suspension of ccAdvertising's accounts was in response to a TOS violation, if the FCC pursues action against ccAdvertising the fines could be huge.

Not quite. They're a pretty major hosting provider too, and it's not just 'extras' to go with their domains. The reason that their hosting tends to not be so great is twofold:

1) Unless you're on their 'grid' hosting, you're sharing a single physical server box with potentially thousands of other accounts, resulting in slow-ass sites. GD may make a lot of money, but they have some stingy mofos working there who hate buying new equipment.
2) They limit what you can do on their hosting because they'd rather tell a customer "No" on something than deal with all of the ways that the customer can fark shiat up.

/Why yes, I did work for Go Daddy in their hosting department. Why do you ask?

Doubt that will happen. Republicans are able to get away with more since they can fall back on the "lineral" attacks on them despite they are breaking the law.
