Shutting Down Prem was a cover to explain why there
was no sales.

Real Reason: Godaddy had NO increase in Traffic…

This .Co thing is TURNING every one into a CON!

Not to mention the GoDaddy.co commercial was a letdown in my opinion.

but my credit card got dinged for $2400.

Agree with mrx

People wait all year to watch the SuperBowl and then rush of in mass right in the middle of it to buy a domain after seeing a 30 second ad.

I find it incredibly hard to beleive that people could EVER be that gullable.

It may be good for exposure but the REAL results of the ad will take some time to take effect, if it ever does.

I wonder why they would send out a PR to get people to list with the pls last week and then pull it during huge traffic?

Maybe the pls drags down servers and it was the easiest thing to take offline to free up some space?

The publicity may have been good but I dont’ think we’ll know how sucessful the ad was for a few weeks, despite the rosy press releases.
