At OrganicWebs we do almost everything inhouse - including building, installing our main servers to host websites. 

When we have no option and need to use 3rd parties, we seek to use ethical Australian companies.


Most other webdevelopers spend little time on ethics. As a consequence they (and their clients) might be shocked to realise that they are funding some unethical people and businesses.


After a little research, you can find that the founding members and CEO of GoDaddy is Bob Parsons. The following is taken from wikipedia in Aug 2022. (

Bob Parsons connection with GoDaddy

"Parsons founded the Internet domain registrar and Web hosting company GoDaddy in 1997. In July 2011, Parsons sold approximately 70 percent of GoDaddy to a private equity consortium led by KKR & Co. L.P. and Silver Lake, and resigned his position as CEO. In June 2014, Parsons stepped down from his position as Executive Chairman. Parsons announced he would be fully stepping away from GoDaddy in October 2018, relinquishing his board seat."


Bob Parsons and Ethics

In 2011, Parsons was denounced by animal rights and other groups for tweeting a video in which he shoots and kills an elephant in Zimbabwe. In response to the shooting, Gawker called Parsons "insane" and "ridiculous." NBC News said "It's definitely the kind of thing only a super rich CEO/founder of a privately-held company could get away with."

Parsons said, "elephants are not endangered and probably there are too many of them." According to Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora elephants are listed as Schedule II."

GoDaddy was criticized as sexist for advertising practices between its first Super Bowl ad in 2005 through the company's IPO in 2014. "The Go Daddy girl was my idea," Parsons said. "I told the ad agency, I want a really well-endowed, good-looking gal in a tight T-shirt, with our name right across her breasts." He used his blog to draw attention to ads that were rejected from television as too racy.
