Registrar group hits another milestone.
Yesterday at 6:02 PM MST, The Go Daddy Group topped 45 million domain names under management across its registrars. This comes about 9 months after the company crossed the 40 million mark.
This is an incredible accomplishment, as the nearest competitor has about 10 million domain names under management. There are just over 200 million domain names registered worldwide, meaning that Go Daddy has over a fifth of the market. It also claims to register about half of all new domain name registrations.
Companies like to look at revenue per employee as a benchmark. This is certainly a good measure. But Go Daddy might also look at domains registered per employee. With 2900 employees, that’s 15,517 per employee. Not bad.
The Go Daddy Group’s two main registrars are GoDaddy.com and Wild West Domains.
