MLG Moves One-Hundred Domains From GoDaddy to Namecheap

Professional game players organization Major League Gaming clearly is against the Stop Online Piracy Act and has made a move to show its disdain for the bill by removing one hundred domains from GoDaddy's care. The company announced yesterday that it will not align itself with companies that support the House anti-piracy bill.

"MLG would like to officially announce that we have removed our entire network, which encompasses over 100 domains, from GoDaddy.com in response to their support of SOPA," a statement on the company's site read. "Moving forward, we will be using Namecheap for all of our hosting needs."

"MLG is firmly against both the specifics of SOPA and the philosophy behind the bill," the statement continued. "We urge all of you to read up on the issue and draw your own conclusions."

Domain name provider Namecheacp is one of several companies that came out strongly against the bill. The company has been rewarded with lots of defections from GoDaddy. GoDaddy has since changed its position on SOPA, but has had a hard time convincing its customers and the public that the change in heart is a sincere one.

You can read the actual bill by visiting The Library of Congress web site.
