This announcement came about a week after the web hosting provider reached it’s 50 million domain name milestone.
As stated in the press release, the web hosting company is now adding more than 10,000 SSL certificates to its portfolio. In a statement, the report also claims that that their closest competitor grew by half that amount.
“Go Daddy is serious about protecting its customers’ data,” Go Daddy CEO and founder Bob Parsons said in a statement. “It’s important to secure your website, but it doesn’t have to cost a lot. Think about it, Go Daddy provides world-class customer care and an SSL certificate that is identical to our competitors — all at less than half the price of most providers. I don’t have to tell you, saving money is important to people these days.”
Go Daddy claims its growing in this industry has been “dramatic” this year. This is including its July announcement that it managed more than a half million SSL certificates. According to the press release, in August, Netcraft ranked Go Daddy as the second largest EV SSL provider in the world.
According to Go Daddy, its SSL certificates include an unlimited server license and free 24 x 7 customer support.
