“I don’t think it will be a gold rush; a gold rush implies there is some scarcity,” Irving said of the new options coming to the market. “But it should create some lift for our business.”
GoDaddy Group Inc., with 55 million domain names under management and $1.3 billion in sales last year, is well-positioned under the new leadership of Irving for the Web-address expansion. There are more than 220 million domain names in use worldwide.
