GoDaddy Boycott Raises $20,000 For Elephant Charity

After GoDaddy CEO Bob Parsons publicly shared a video in which he kills an elephant, competing domain registrar Namecheap is displaying some great business savvy.

GoDaddy customers who tranfer their domain to Namecheap can do so for $5, and Namecheap will donate 20% to Save the Elephants.

According to Next Web, this move earned them $80,000 in revenue and raised $20,000 for Save the Elephants.
