According to a story in the Wall Street Journal on 9/10/10, domain registrar and web hosting company GoDaddy.com has "put itself up for sale."
The company has hired an investment banking firm to manage a "private auction," and expects to attract "upwards of $1 billion" during the auction process. GoDaddy had previously registered with the SEC in 2006 to go public, but withdrew the filing.
According to its website, GoDaddy.com was founded in 1997 and has 10 million domains under management. The company is not commenting on the report, and would neither confirm nor deny it.
