Go Daddy Provided 44% of All Net-New SSL Certs Issued In Past Year

Number doubles Verisign's, according to Netcraft's May 2009 Trends Report

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (May 28, 2009) -- Go Daddy is establishing a trend as the consumers' choice for SSL certificates, showing the largest net growth 11 of the last 12 months!

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. VeriSign, the old guard provider, slipped yet again in May, issuing less than half as many net-new SSL certs as Go Daddy.

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."

"This should not surprise anyone," says Go Daddy CEO and Founder Bob Parsons. "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."

"Our results show Go Daddy has seen steady and continuous growth in global market share as a certificate authority," said Mandy Davis, Operations Manager at analyst firm Netcraft Ltd.

"Go Daddy's SSL certificate offerings appear to be growing in popularity, as the company now holds a 25 percent global market share."

A Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Certificate enables a browser and server to establish a secure, encrypted connection for online transactions and communications. GoDaddy.com SSL Certificates are offered in three assurance validation levels: Standard, Deluxe and Premium Extended Validation SSL. All Go Daddy certificates include an unlimited server license, meaning one certificate can be used on multiple servers, potentially saving companies thousands of dollars above and beyond the base price.
