What Does Godaddy.com Have Against Liberty To The Captives? 

Nothing, until Pamela Hennessy contacted them.

Pamela Hennessy, spokeswoman for the Terri Schindler Schiavo family, demanded that Godaddy.com remove the libertytothecaptives.net website from the internet in response to my expose' of her altered pictures. My exposure included the display of enlargements of two of her pictures that had been on my website for over a year as well as articles that Scientology found offensive.

Suddenly and without advance warning, Godaddy.com complied with Pamela Hennessy's demand to remove my entire website from their server on February 10th, 2005 rather than simply the two photos she complained about. The timing of Ms Hennessy's complaint served to remove my website during the weeks immediately prior to Terri Schiavo's dehydration killing. (Terri's "death process" was complete on the reverse of L. Ron Hubbard's March 13th birthday.)

Ms Hennessy had previously convinced register.com to discontinue hosting libertytothecaptives.net in January 2005, so twice within a thirty-day period  libertytothecaptives.net was removed from the internet due to Ms Hennessy's influence. She complained about the exposure of her altered pictures (Terri Schiavo's pictures were also altered), as well as the articles that expose the fact that Scientology tactics were used against Terri Schiavo and her family.

Godaddy.com's Trademark Dept. assured me that if I removed Ms Hennessy's pictures and the portion of Ms Hennessy's address that reveals that she lives in an area that Scientology controls, my site would be restored to godaddy.com's server. It was never restored to the godaddy.com server as promised. I have a feeling that they were afraid to host my website. Who caused Godaddy.com to fear hosting libertytothecaptives.net?

Ms Hennessy also demanded that Godaddy.com delete my libertytothecaptives.net domain. They did not do this but for a significant amount of time, they rendered my domain unuseable. Due to the fact that my site was never restored to godaddy.com's server and I had to wait while someone graciously built a server to temporarily host our site, libertytothecaptives.net has not been pointing to a webhost since February 10, 2005. (We are grateful to have been forwarded to ginzell.net for a time, but that is not the same as being hosted at our own domain.) 

Libertytothecaptives.net was up on our new webhost for only ONE day before godaddy.com suddenly discovered "problems" with my domain. First they told me their server was broken and then a tech revealed that my A record has been deleted by someone. (We are grateful for the majority of honest techs who work at Godaddy.com)

Liberty To The Captives is presently off the net due to the fact that my A record was deleted at godaddy.com yesterday, March 3, 2005.

An A record is part of the zone file. It is used to point Internet traffic to an IP address. For example, you can use an "A record" to designate abc.yourdomain.com to send traffic to your web site at IP address 209.15.23.255. You can also designate xyz.yourdomain.com to go to a separate IP address. (Quote source)

A trip to this site proved that libertytothecaptives.net's A record was STILL deleted as of 12: 56 pm Eastern time, March 5, 2005. (Type in libertytothecaptives.net in the DNS lookup area.)  Godaddy.com will not permit me to speak to the Senior techs (who, along with the other techs, have the ability to fix this problem in less than five minutes) nor the president, Bob Parsons. 

At this point in time we are waiting for godaddy.com to take the five minutes that is needed to make the libertytothecaptives.net domain point to my IP. My shopping cart (which I paid them for 12 months in advance) is unavailable as long as my domain is being prevented from being pointed to my IP.

I have called Godaddy.com numerous times in an attempt to resolve the numerous problems that ensure that my site is never put on the internet. They keep telling me to wait. I have waited for weeks. Godaddy.com might retaliate for this disclosure and make my domain never work again while it is in their possession but I will not be silent about the fact that they took my money and kept back the services I paid for. 

Since I do not have the financial means to force Godaddy.com to stop preventing me from using the services that I have ALREADY paid for, I am asking for your help.

Please call or email Godaddy.com and encourage them to IMMEDIATELY point my libertytothecaptives.net domain to the IP that I gave them. Also, ask them to stop blocking me from having access to my own total DNS control manager in my domain manager's section of godaddy.com.

Follow Up

Liberty To The Captives is now working. Many thanks to those who called Godaddy.com on our behalf.

On March 5, 2005 at 2:48 pm. I locked my libertytothecaptives domain at the godaddy.com domain manager. 

update: 2:00 pm March 5, 2005. The Godaddy.com techs must be fixing something. Now the secure online store is working. I called Godaddy.com at 1:07 pm today. After telling me they need 72 hours to fix something that actually takes minutes, it seems they have finally decided to fix my DNS records. 

However, the Godaddy.com techs pointed the libertytothecaptives.net domain to the godaddy.com welcome page by entering the wrong ip: 64.202.167.192. This has been corrected so the libertytothecaptives.net site will be on the internet soon.

Thank you,

Gary and Lisa Ruby

Note: Liberty To The Captives acquired our own server in August, 2005.
