World’s largest domain registrar will drop .com from its logo.
That iconic GoDaddy.com logo? It’s going to get a bit shorter.
Today at its Registry Days conference in Phoenix, Go Daddy CEO Blake Irving announced that the company is going to drop the .com ending from its logo.
That announcement was met with a round of applause by the audience, which is made up of companies that hope to chip away at the .com empire.
Irving said the branding change will occur over the next year.
Irving gave an analogy of telling his kids about records, and how amazed they were that it used to be how everyone listened to music. He imagines that his kids will tell a similar story about domain names to their kids. They’ll tell their kids about a time when every web site ended in .com — something that will be difficult for them to understand in a world of hundreds of gTLDs.
