Revenue tops $1 billion in Q2.
GoDaddy (NYSE: GDDY) reported second quarter earnings after the market closed today.
The company grossed just over a billion dollars in revenue, taking in $1.02 billion for the quarter. That’s up 9% compared to the same quarter a year ago. Exchange rates shave a point off its revenue growth.
Core Platform revenue, which includes “plain” hosting and domains, increased 7%. Applications & Commerce (Websites + Marketing, WordPress hosting, email, applications and everything else) revenue jumped 15%.
Citing currency exchange rates, the company lowered its full-year revenue guidance from $4.14 billion – $4.16 billion to $4.10 billion – $4.130 billion.
Whereas previous quarterly presentations mentioned a strong aftermarket for domains, this quarter the company focused on its new “Payable Domain” service. This lets you turn a subdomain into a payment gateway.
