DomainCash from GoDaddy

GoDaddy has just announced a program called DomainCash where, for a monthly subscription fee, they will pay up to 80% of the PPC advertising revenues that they make on the traffic to the domain.  As, Adam Viener, point's out on ReveNews, why pay for the subscription when you can get the same or better services for free on sites like TrafficClub.com

GoDaddy's SuperBowl Ad Offends Women

Surprise, Surprise...  An ad the objectifies women to sell their products offends women... Hmm... who would have thought.  Comscore sent out a release reporting the brand damage or improvement from the superbowl ad.  Although they reported that 28% of women felt the ad damaged their impression of the GoDaddy brand, 12% said it actually improved their impression. 

Of course, predicatbly on the Men's side of the equation, only 9% said it damaged their impression and 35% said it improved their impression.

Of course, these figures mean nothing.  The real question for any ad is did it produce sales?  Bob Parsons points out that the ads generated significant traffic.  That's good news so long as conversion rates were good.

It's a Godaddy-Esque world we live in.  Viva la Godaddy!

SuperBowlAds.us did a good job putting up the ads from the SuperBowl.  View them here.

Godaddy's 13th Superbowl Ad Declined

GoDaddy recently had their 13th Superbowl ad submission declined.   On his Blog, Bob Parsons says that this process hasn't been a publicity stunt and they are hoping that their 14th submission, which has already been sent, will be the one that gets approved.

They are coming down to the wire, as the last day for submission is today, January 31st. 

Publicity stunt or not, they have made the internet only version of their Godaddy Window Washer TV Commercial available on the Godaddy site.

Take a look at the uncut version of their last year's superbowl ad here:

Godaddy vs. Network Solutions

Godaddy's president, Bob Parsons, tooks some very good shots at their competitor, network solutions, in his recent Blog posting. Apparently Netsol's president, Champ Mitchell, didn't have his facts straight in a recent interview. Here is a highlight:

Regarding Domain Names Under Management

Mitchell: We (Network Solutions) have maintained our domain base to everyone’s surprise, at 7.3 (million) to 7.4 million domains under management. Go Daddy does have a number larger than that. They probably have a little over 8 million.

The facts: Network Solutions on August 10, had 6.8 million domains under management. The entire Network Solutions group (3 companies) has 7.3 million domains under management. In contrast, Godaddy.com by itself had 8 million names under management.

The Go Daddy Group (Go Daddy, Wild West and Blue Razor) had 9.4 million names under management.

The post is worth a read.

GoDaddy Domain Registrar Review

GoDaddy is a great Domain Registrar with excellent prices.  It's hard to beat their standard price of $8.95 for a .com domain name registration.  They sometimes discount this domain with additional domain add-ons or bulk purchases. 

GoDaddy's account management tools are easy to use and powerful.  All domain names come with total DNS control, Free domain forwarding (with or without masking / cloaking), and 100 email address forwards.

I personally haven't used GoDaddy's Hosting solution, but hear it's fairly good.  The GoDaddy Website building tool is lacking.

Overall Pros:

  • Great Prices
  • Free Web Forwarding
  • Easy Domain Management
  • Powerful DNS tools

Overall Cons:

  • Poor Website Building Tool

GoDaddy is a great choice for inexpensive domain name registrations and is my current registrar of choice.
