GoDaddy.com is transitioning approximately 4.5 million Web domains to be hosted on the Microsoft Solution for Windows-based Hosting. Upon completion of the migration, Go Daddy will have moved all its parked domains from Linux to the Windows platform.
“Our business is based on providing the best possible service at the lowest possible price. This strategy requires us to maximize all of our resources, particularly our technology assets,” said Warren Adelman, GoDaddy.com president and COO. “It was clear from all of the testing we’ve conducted that Microsoft provides an efficient and scalable operating platform, while also providing the performance needed to handle our extraordinary growth.”
GoDaddy.com, known for its prices (and Super Bowl advertising) is currently the world’s No. 1 domain name registrar, both in terms of new registrations and domains under management. The company annually ranks as one of the fastest-growing privately held businesses in the USA.
Go Daddy recently created delivery applications for both DotNetNuke and Telligent Systems’ Community Server that give Windows-based hosters the ability to create dynamic Web-based applications that seamlessly integrate with their hosting accounts.
In addition, Go Daddy recently developed and deployed its Quick Blog tool that permits the aggregation of bloggers in one large Windows-based application, giving each blogger a unique domain.
