The person on the other end seemed startled that I had actually answered. It was someone from GoDaddy’s abuse department, who informed me that they were “turning off” weebly.com due to a complaint.
“WHAT?” I said frantically into the phone. He explained that they had received a complaint about the content of a site, and that they were removing the DNS entries for weebly.com because of it. I asked him if they had contacted us previously — he responded that they hadn’t.
The site in question featured a bad review of a local business, and that business had complained. Why on earth would a domain registrar take it upon themselves to police content?
SOPA is definitely a bad idea if I’ve ever heard of one.
