HOSTING NEWS) – July 26, 2005 – The Go Daddy Group, Inc., parent company
of GoDaddy.com, has announced that all of its ICANN-accredited registrars —
Go Daddy, Blue Razor Domains and Wild West Domains – now offer the .JOBS top
level domain extension. Backed by the Society for Human Resources Management
(SHRM), with over 190,000 members worldwide, .JOBS serves the human resources
community by providing an easy-to-remember nexus for those offering, and seeking,
employment information and opportunities.
According to Bob Parsons, president and founder of The Go Daddy Group, ”Go
Daddy is proud to offer the .JOBS domain extension to qualified professionals.
Go Daddy itself has experienced exponential growth during the past few years,
so we know full well that job seekers need a direct route to career information.
The http://www.companyname.jobs format provides just that. It provides a direct
route for job applicants seeking specific career information at a particular
company, and creates a more streamlined recruiting process for human resource
.JOBS is a restricted domain, meaning that applicants must be verified by the
registry, Employ Media, in order to qualify for the domain name. The ability
to secure a company name in .JOBS is restricted to those who: (i) are tasked
with hiring (or other HR duties) on behalf of their employer; (ii) are authorized
to purchase their companyname.jobs on behalf of their employer; and
(iii) agree to abide by both the .JOBS Use Policies and the SHRM Code of Professional
Ethics. Purchasers of .JOBS domain names will, upon passing verification, see
their domain names live on the Internet on or about September 1, 2005.
.JOBS domain names cost $119.95 per year at GoDaddy.com, with a one-time application
fee of $39.95. Prices are slightly less at membership-based Blue Razor Domains
($114.95 and $34.95). Wild West Domains resellers who choose to offer .JOBS
domain extensions set their own pricing.
The Go Daddy Group claims to register a new domain name every 6 seconds. For
