Web Hosting Provider Go Daddy’s Rapid Growth Extends To EV SSL Certificate Market

August 5, 2011 – (HOSTSEARCH.COM) – Go Daddy, the world's largest provider of Web hosting, domain names and net new SSL Certificates, leveraged its pricing and unparalleled customer care to become the second largest EV SSL certificate provider in the world ... showing how giving customers what they want is a winning proposition.

According to a report issued yesterday by leading industry analyst, Netcraft Ltd., "Go Daddy's continued strong growth has caused it to become the second largest EV certificate authority this month." Netcraft's report also states Go Daddy was the fastest growing domain validated SSL provider in the market.

"Our rapid growth in the EV SSL market demonstrates how important it is to give customers what they want - a reliable product at a great price," said Go Daddy President and COO Warren Adelman. "Go Daddy Certificates cost up to 15 times less than our competitors. Our customers know Go Daddy Certificates provide the same industry-standard security as other companies, but are backed by our industry-best customer support." 

Go Daddy began providing SSLCertificate in 2004 with a dedication to its core principles - affordability, ease of use and world-class 24/7 customer care. In 2007, Go Daddy helped draft the guidelines for Extended Validation (EV) certificates, helping improve the security for online transactions dramatically. In June, Go Daddy announced it had surpassed 500,000 SSL certificates under management.

SSL certificates encrypt transactions between servers and browsers to ensure data is kept secure. The process to obtain an SSL certificate varies based on the kind of certificate purchased. Go Daddy's Premium SSL Certificates, or Extended Validation Certificates, require the highest level of identity verification prior to issuance. A site secured by an Extended Validation certificate displays a green address bar in most browsers, along with the organization to which the certificate was issued.

With one-third of the Internet running through its DNS servers, Go Daddy recognizes the role it plays in Internet security. Go Daddy provides an entire security solution - products like SSL certificates and Premium DNS, which protect against traffic redirection and DNS poisoning, help website owners, and visitors alike, stay safe online.
