GoDaddy leads the way for new domain names.
On GoDaddy’s investor conference call this week, the company disclosed that its customers have registered 850,000 names in new top level domains. That’s over the course of about 18 months of availability.
GoDaddy customers have registered more new top level domain names with it than at any competing registrar, which shouldn’t come as a surprise for two reasons.
First, GoDaddy registers the most domains overall. You’d expect it to be number one.
Second, the company has done a good job of mixing relevant new extensions into its search results.
Also on the call, the company stated that revenue from its acquisition of Marchex’s domain name portfolio last quarter has been immaterial. This isn’t surprising given the company’s size.
