Wow, that's quite a valuation!
Is it me, or do all these valuations seem high.


GoDaddy.com is pushing ahead with an initial public offering early next year that would value the world’s biggest domain registration service at roughly $4.5 billion, The Post has learned.

CFO Scott Wagner met last week with analysts to give an update on GoDaddy since it first filed paperwork to go public in June, a source said.GoDaddy IPO Values the Company at $4.5 Billion [nypost.com]

Domain names are easily transferred away from GoDaddy to another registrar. Ditto website hosting.

The same could be said about car / homeowner / life insurance. There are some hefty valuations in the insurance market.

It will be interesting to see how the rationalization for the valuation of GoDaddy evolves.

and in emerging markets, such as India, where only about one in 50 small businesses are online, and where GoDaddy hopes to grow aggressively.


Just who runs this company? Do they know absolutely anything about such countries and the way things are done?

My guess is they look at US/EU stats and think that they can just go somewhere else, be accepted, and scale that country to the same as US/EU...doh!
