Faster Access for Go Daddy's Growing Asian Customer-Base
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Go Daddy is expanding its global reach with another data center - in Singapore. The highly efficient operation is designed to enable faster services for Go Daddy's Web hosting and e-mail customers in Asia. The facility accommodates Go Daddy's rapidly expanding customer-base, which already exceeds 8.4 million people worldwide.
In recent years, the world's largest Web host provider, also the world's top domain name registrar, has grown its customer base exponentially in places like Japan, South Korea and Taiwan, regions that account for 42 percent of the Internet population.1
Go Daddy customers whose websites run through the new Singapore data center will afford their local visitors faster website load times, based on the distance the data is travelling.
"People everywhere are looking for quality products at affordable prices," said Go Daddy CEO and Founder Bob Parsons. "Go Daddy has always been committed to providing the best possible products and services to all our customers. Having data centers strategically located in our growth areas just makes sense."
Go Daddy has been expanding in the U.S. and internationally. After seeing an influx of European customers, Go Daddy opened a data center in The Netherlands last year. In July, the company opened a new office in Hiawatha, Iowa, adding U.S.-based customer care representative jobs to keep up with customer growth.
The worldwide expansion is led by Go Daddy's brand of reliable uptime, speed and security, as well as its value rich product offerings. All services are backed by Go Daddy's unparalleled 24/7 customer support.
