In a decade, thanks in no small part to its plentiful promotional deals, it has grown into a veritable empire: serving 12 million customers, it is the largest domain registrar (and web hosting provider) in the world. GoDaddy, its support of various causes and its provocative Super Bowl commercials, have drawn worldwide attention and helped GoDaddy maintain its reign over the domain registration market.

You can also perform bulk domain searches (and GoDaddy’s bulk domain registration prices can’t be beat). GoDaddy offers nearly every variation of domain services you could think of international domains, private registration, certification, protected registration, SSL security is included with every hosting plan (and each site is provided with an SSL certificate to broadcast security credentials to site visitors).

Additional Services:

No small part of GoDaddy’s success at attracting customers can be attributed to its registration and web hosting package deals; in fact, nearly all domain registration plans offer some web hosting elements (most notably GoDaddy’s InstantPage™ site builder.)
