Wales is quite unhappy with GoDaddy's position on the Stop Online Privacy Act, by announcing the shift in the following tweet:

 

I am proud to announce that the Wikipedia domain names will move away from GoDaddy. Their position on #sopa is unacceptable to us.

 

He then updated, and posted another tweet the next day:

 

Wikia is also moving several hundred domains from godaddy. Which registrar has quality and price right?

 

SOPA is starting to snowball into a serious issue, it needs as much airtime as possible.
