Scottsdale, Arizona – (The Hosting News) – June 1, 2009 – According to Netcraft Ltd’s May 2009 Trends Report, Go Daddy was responsible for 44 percent of the overall net growth in SSL certificates found by Netcraft this past month, showing the largest net growth 11 of the last 12 months.
The report states ‘VeriSign has again seen its market share decline and Go Daddy has seen another increase in both total certificates and market share this month.’
Bob Parsons, CEO and Founder of Go Daddy remarked, ”This should not surprise anyone. Go Daddy offers low cost SSL certificates and allows customers to purchase one cert to cover all of a company’s servers. Try getting that from VeriSign – it won’t happen.”
Mandy Davis, Operations Manager at analyst firm Netcraft Ltd. added, ”Our results show Go Daddy has seen steady and continuous growth in global market share as a certificate authority. Go Daddy’s SSL certificate offerings appear to be growing in popularity, as the company now holds a 25 percent global market share.”
