Go Daddy announced today that it has just surpassed 40 million, registered domain names.
Godaddy said it typically registers a million domain names per month.
Godaddy also says they have a 50% market share of all active new domains registered in the world and is more than three times the size of its closest competitor.
Go Daddy CEO and Founder Bob Parsons is quoted as saying:
“”The Go Daddy portfolio surpassed 40 million domain names today. The Internet is the heart of the new economy,” said . “The Internet is one of the few sectors showing monumental growth and Go Daddy is positioned in the sweet spot of the expansion. Think about it, to have your own Web site, you need a domain name and no one can deliver on a domain like Go Daddy. Our growth is essentially a window into what’s happening with the Internet.”
“For the last two consecutive years, Go Daddy has been registering, renewing or transferring a domain name at the rate of one every second of every day.”
“Over the next twenty-five years, I see the Internet growing exponentially,” said Parsons. “Think about it, whether you are communicating, learning or conducting business, being on the Internet is where it’s all happening. I’d say if you aren’t online with your business, you really aren’t in the game.”
Go Daddy’s growth is benefiting people looking for jobs right now too. Currently there are more than 100 open positions available at www.GoDaddy.com/Jobs.
