    I own tons of domains. Many are mine, many are clients.

    Anyways i finally decided to take a look at my credit card statement a little more closely and noticed that godaddy has been charging me roughly 30 bucks a month in "business renewals" even though i had those domains to not auto renew.

    Apparently business renewals are considered separate so when you set your shit to not auto renew some domains, you'll still get charged for that business renewal :o

    Figured i'd tell you guys so you wont make the same mistake as me and lose some nice spare change :o

    Godaddy = assholes.

    I transferred like 6 domains to them and got the free privacy added at no cost. Seems like a good idea, until a year is up, and you need to cancel the privacy. You get an account auto-setup with DOMAINSBYPROXY their gay ass privacy subsidiary. If you don't know your account info they choose for you, you need to go through hell just to get your password reset. Fax them proof, etc... pain in the ass.
