Change domain category

Have NEVER had this issue - setting up new domain and it was automatically categorized as "games" ... it's a pet boarding website ... wtf?  Can the categorization be changed via godaddy or where do I have to do this?  It is being blocked by firewalls because of the "games" designation

Unfortunately you do not have control of this.  Each vendor is able to set their own criteria that is further refined by the settings a company chooses.  It would be a matter of figuring out the individual vendors and contacting them directly.

@TNGator Where are you seeing your domain categorized as games?

multiple corporate firewalls - their “net nannies” ... do not see where it is getting this categorization - there is NOTHING gaming related in the domain name (pawslandboarding)
