World’s largest domain name registrar supposedly no longer for sale.
The Wall Street Journal, which originally reported that domain name registrar GoDaddy was for sale, is now saying the company is off the market.
The Journal reports that the sales process was cut off last week. A number of private equity companies were in the mix, and the story suggests a sale price of $1.5 billion to $2.0 billion was possible.
So Bob Parsons will continue to control the company. He just made another move that he wouldn’t be able to do (under the company’s name) if he sold out: Go Daddy recently donated $1 million to the George W. Bush presidential library. Go Daddy founder Bob Parsons isn’t shy about leaning to the right.
Although I suppose Parsons could easily make a donation by himself instead of on behalf of the company.
