CEO Warren Adelman said that, while online piracy remains an important topic for the company, SOPA may not be the best solution and they can "clearly do better". In the future, GoDaddy wants to work together with "all Internet stakeholders". In the end, it is "worth the wait" to get it right and "Go Daddy will support it when and if the Internet community supports it."
GoDaddy navigated around a flip-flop perception by stressing that it "remains steadfast in its promise to support security and stability of the Internet", but removed "blog postings that had outlined areas of the bill" that the company supported to "avoid confusion". To some of us, GoDaddy's decision may not be as conclusive as GoDaddy wrote in its announcement and appear to be much more damage control than a change of heart.
GoDaddy was the target of an outrage of the web community for its support for SOPA. There was even an open proposal to move domains away from GoDaddy.
