Namecheap offering $4.99 transfer to help save elephants

Yeah, this is about the strangest deal I’ve seen in the hosting world. The CEO of GoDaddy, Bob Parson, kills an elephant recorded on video, which was uploaded on YouTube and sparked outrage amongst animal activists. So Namecheap decided to offer $4.99 domain transfers for a 24 hour period (limited to 10 domains per account).

Code: BYEBYEGD

As announced on their own blog:

We’ve decided to throw our support behind our Elephant friends by offering domain transfers at a price where we actually lose money.

Show your protest by saying BYEBYEGD again and transfer your domains to Namecheap for $4.99 for the next 24 hours through 11:59pm EST on 3/31/11 (limit 10 per user).

On top of that, we’ll donate $1 for each transfer to Save The Elephants

Definitely a good marketing tactic!
