Go Daddy Expands Further Into Europe With New Data Center

September 17, 2009 by  

Web Hosting Services SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Go Daddy is expanding its global presence. Today, the world’s largest domain name registrar and top paid Web hosting provider, which already serves more than 7 million customers worldwide, announced a new European data center located in the Netherlands[1]. The new data center is designed to bring Go Daddy services closer to European Internet users, providing even faster access to their hosted Web sites.

The data center is expected to grow the company’s expanding European customer base by providing Go Daddy’s brand of reliable uptime, speed and security to more Web hosting customers.

“No one will take better care of our customers than we will — no one,” said Go Daddy CEO and Founder Bob Parsons. “By spending the money up front and not outsourcing operations, we control key factors like uptime, security and speed.”

European customers serviced by the new data center will be able to have their Web sites served faster to European visitors, based on the distance the data is travelling. The data center is backed up by Go Daddy’s well known reliability and support. The company is planning to include Web based email and virtual dedicated servers in the near future.

Go Daddy is the world’s dominant Web hosting domain registrar and has been looking to grow its customer-base in places like Germany, France, the U.K. and Spain where Internet penetration is more than double the world average.[2]

As part of the European expansion, Go Daddy is also offering Spain’s national domain name extension, .ES. Customers in Spain also have a localized phone number with Spanish speaking support. In addition to .ES, the company also offers .EU, .DE, .NL and more than two dozen other country code TLDs.
