ISP GoDaddy announced today that it has filed a registration statement on Form S-1 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission relating to a proposed initial public offering of shares of its Class A common stock.
Internet hosting and small business service provider GoDaddy goes IPO. GoDaddy got rid of the infamous GoDaddy girls and the risqué Super Bowl ads. Their new marketing is entirely focused on the small business message. Watch below the GoDaddy Super Bowl ads from this year. There is still lots of skin, but in a different way.
GoDaddy has 12 million customers worldwide and 57 million domain names under management. The company has not specified an IPO date yet. Filing the S-1 is just the first necessary step to go public.
