Registrar has 50 million domains on the books. But how about over time?
This past weekend Go Daddy topped the 50 million domain name mark.
This number is kind of like a balance sheet: it means the company has 50 million domain names currently registered with it.
But what about the longer view? I asked Go Daddy for some indication of how many domains it has registered over time.
Since it became a registrar, Go Daddy has registered more than 225 million years worth of domain names.
A domain registered for one year and then dropped is worth one year, if it’s renewed for a year then it becomes two years.
