(The Hosting News) – Web host Go Daddy broke ground on its latest location in Temple, Arizona Tuesday in an event that drew attendance from state Governor Jan Brewer.
The 150 thousand square foot facility is expected to employ 1,300 people – something that could provide a significant boost to Arizona’s job market. Up to 300 new jobs could be created.
“GoDaddy is changing people’s lives by helping people turn their dreams and ideas into real businesses – and this new facility is a key piece to making that happen. This location in the heart of the ASU Research Park is a sweet spot; it’s in the hub of the state’s technology corridor and gives us the space we need for the years ahead,” stated company CEO Blake Irving in a press release.
Meanwhile, Governor Brewer referred to the web host as a “true success story.”
The move is a natural fit. Go Daddy is based in Scottsdale, Arizona – just around 15 minutes away from the site that will provide for customer care, developers and engineers.
Go Daddy is commonly considered the world’s largest domain registrar, accounting for over 50 million web addresses.
