GoDaddy Hits Big Number

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Web domain registrar GoDaddy recently announced a big fact: It now has over 50 million registered domains. In marking the occasion, the popular web host pointed to “the enduring power of the Internet, even during difficult economic times.”

GoDaddy provides for the largest amount of domains registrations.

Commenting on the matter in a company press release, GoDaddy CEO Bob Parsons stated, “Sometimes you hear people say all the good domain names are gone, but they are dead wrong.”

“An almost unlimited supply of great names is available … right now. In fact, Go Daddy is registering two-and-a-half times more domains a month now, than we were five years ago. Why? Domain names are like 21st century real estate. They allow you to own your own place on the Internet,” he continued.

Go Daddy was founded by Parsons in 1997. Around July, in a deal that was reportedly worth over two billion dollars, a partnership of private equity firms including KKR and Silver Lake acquired the popular domain provider.
