Venovix Announces “NoDaddy” Promotion; offers GoDaddy Users free Domain Migration and Web Hosting for Donating to International Elephant Foundation

Web hosting and cloud services company offers GoDaddy users who are displeased by the recent elephant hunting video to join them for free

ST. LOUIS, MO, April 7, 2011 --/WORLD-WIRE/---- Since GoDaddy’s CEO proudly posted a video of his annual trip to Zimbabwe to hunt elephants for sport, many GoDaddy customers are taking their web business elsewhere. Venovix (, a web hosting and cloud services company, has joined forces with this movement; announcing a new promotion, titled “NoDaddy,” that’s targeting GoDaddy users seeking an exit.

Now through the end of April, Venovix is offering GoDaddy users free domain migrations for donating $2 per domain migration to the International Elephant Foundation. In addition, GoDaddy users who switch their web hosting to Venovix will receive their first six months of hosting (a $60 value) free with a one-year commitment. That’s $60 for a full year of Venovix hosting at $5 per month. The company’s web hosting features unlimited subdomains, email addresses and storage. Venovix is donating 20% of all hosting revenues generated from its NoDaddy promotion to the International Elephant Foundation, which translates to a $12 donation for every one-year hosting commitment.

“Upon learning of the disheartening story of Bob Parsons killing an African elephant, we decided to cease our involvement with GoDaddy,” Michelle Sciuto, marketing director and co-founder of Venovix, states. “Recognizing the technical challenges others face when switching domain registrars and web hosting providers, we’re helping those who feel compelled to make the transition with us. Venovix will take care of the technical details for free and give you six months of annual web hosting for free. All we ask is for your support of the conservation of elephants with a donation to the International Elephant Foundation.”

The International Elephant Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation of individuals and institutions formed in 1998 to promote conservation of African Elephants and Asian Elephants. The organization’s mission is to support and operate elephant conservation and educational programs in managed facilities and in the wild, with emphasis on management, protection and scientific research. They’re committed to saving African and Asian Elephants by providing funds and scientific expertise to support elephant research and conservation programs worldwide.
