(The Hosting News) – Top domain registrar and web host Go Daddy on Monday revealed that it had acquired Locu, an online business promotion service.
“Locu epitomizes what GoDaddy is all about – both companies are hell-bent on helping the ‘little guy’ thrive on the Internet,” commented Go Daddy CEO Blake Irving via a press release.
Irving continued, “Locu is comprised of amazing technologists who have taken the very complex problem of helping small businesses ‘get found’ wherever consumers are looking and are solving it through elegant, technology-based services. We are welcoming some of the brightest technology minds on the planet to our GoDaddy family.”
Among Locu’s customers are restaurants, accountants, photographers and others. Locu’s clientele base includes over 30 thousand businesses.
And while the acquisition is new, it’s not the first time that Go Daddy has done work with Locu. Locu’s services were previous integrated into Go Daddy’s website builder.
