Godaddy, Mirroring Hetzner’s Earlier Decision, Discontinued Its Services for Customers from Russia

Recently, it was announced that users or contacts located in the Russian Federation will face the termination of their accounts and hosting services with Hetzner, by December 31, 2023.

Service Discontinuation Announcement for Russian Federation Clients

Users involved in domain registrations are given until the mentioned deadline to begin migrating their domains to a different registrar. Instructions for this domain transfer process are accessible on the company’s website. This decision affects various services, including domain registration and other products.

Regarding other services, access to all relevant data and content will cease after December 31, 2023. GoDaddy makes it clear that backups will not be available post this cutoff date. It is advisable for users to proactively extract their data and move any applicable products to an alternative service provider.

Post the termination date of the account or service, accessibility will be entirely revoked. The company extends its gratitude for past collaboration and apologizes for any resulting inconveniences.

This development is part of a broader pattern of digital service and product isolation in certain global regions, reflecting ongoing international political and economic dynamics. It underscores the necessity of having robust digital asset management strategies and the ability to swiftly adapt to evolving conditions in the international digital landscape.
