Wikipedia moves servers away from GoDaddy

SOPA support fallout is still not over.


Though the domain host GoDaddy has already reverted their stance and publicly opposed SOPA, it looks like the fallout of their error in supporting the archaic bill is still not over. Wikipedia has just finished transferring servers from them, in fact.

In a post on their website, they announce that they’ve transferred their servers to competing website MarkMonitor, which they say is a much more efficient service. They clearly mention that among the reasons for the shift was the fact that GoDaddy supported SOPA, and the comments on the post clearly laud and support their decision to do so.

Losing Wikimedia and all their websites is obviously a big blow for GoDaddy who has been in damage control mode since their short-sighted decision of supporting a bill that the entire internet community hated. But something tells me this might not still be the end of it.
