GoDaddy.com Up For Sale

submitted on September 11, 2010 by HouTex in "Stores / Merchants"
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.

    Did you watch the video at the end of that article? I can't believe it is a real hearing and not another commercial for GoDaddy Smile

      Most of the time, those Superbowl commercials are really worth seeing, and they're usually better than the games. Mr Green If we miss the game, we just check out the good stuff (commercials) online! Amused
