GoDaddy Inc. is an American publicly traded Internet domain registrar and web hosting company. As of May 2017, GoDaddy has served approximately 17 million customers and had over 6000 employees worldwide.The company is known for its advertising. It has been involved in several controversies related to censorship.

For example:

The PoC Video (shows the vulnerable redirect code along with our javascript injection):

Godaddy fixed the issue and rewarded Seekurity team with a generous bounty, Thanks Godaddy!
