HostPapa Puts Its Support Behind Saving the Elephants in Africa

HostPapa will donate $5 to Save the Elephants for every GoDaddy customer who transfers to HostPapa

Oakville, ON, Canada; April 5, 2011 – You've probably heard about it in the news: Bob Parsons, CEO of GoDaddy Inc. (one of the largest domain providers and web hosting companies in world) recently took part in an elephant hunt – for sport – in Africa. The graphic slaughter of the elephant was captured on video, which Parsons shared with the public through Twitter.

HostPapa rarely speaks out against its competitors, but in this case we feel compelled to join the many voices condemning Parsons' actions.
