Basic information about the company

GoDaddy is an American company that deals with domain registration. The world's largest hosting provider was founded in 1997. The customer base at the beginning of 2022 had more than 17 million users. GoDaddy focuses primarily on small businesses (individual entrepreneurs and small companies).

It is noteworthy that the company was going to hold an initial public offering twice. The first time it happened was in 2006, but the management decided to withdraw the application, explained to the uncertain market situation. After the second IPO filing, GDDY Stock was listed on the NYSE in April 2015. The price per security was $20. However, the original plan was to issue 23 million shares of GoDaddy stock at $17-19.

The company's operations

Many people know GoDaddy as a domain name registrar, which statistically numbered 82 million as of 2021. However, in the past few years, the company has expanded its list of services. The provider's customers can purchase almost all known forms of hosting.

  • GoDaddy's services include:
  • domain name purchase;
  • VPS;
  • optimized WordPress hosting;
  • email systems;
  • Microsoft office packages.

The company has developed user-friendly interfaces for users and also offers discounts on packages. In all packages, sites are encrypted using the SSL protocol, which ensures the safety of the personal data of clients.

The latest news on the stock exchange rate

In September 2021, the company experienced a leak of customer information due to a hacker attack. Attackers hacked into the database, gaining access to 1.2 million user accounts in WordPress. The hackers seized email addresses, phone numbers of GoDaddy clients, encrypted SSL keys, and sFTP protocol data. The hacker attack took place in September 2021, but the problem was not discovered until November 17. GoDaddy's stock traded at $72.89 on 11/17/21 and then dropped below $67 within a week.

In February 2022, the provider announced plans to begin a $3 billion stock buyback shortly, a process planned for several years to come. The initial phase of the $750 million GoDaddy Stock buyback was planned by management in the first quarter of 2022.
