GoDaddy (NYSE: GDDY) announced that it has registered its 1 millionth .UK1 domain in the United Kingdom. As more UK entrepreneurs and professionals decide to turn their ideas into reality, they are choosing GoDaddy to establish a successful online presence. In fact, an estimated 25 percent2 of Britain's most popular domains are now registered through GoDaddy.

Every day in the UK, new domains are registered by individuals starting new ventures, established firms planning to launch new products and software developers ready to launch the next must-have smartphone apps. Both and the most recent .uk domain extensions represent two strong elements of recognition in the UK and abroad, offering an element of national pride and trust. Entrepreneurs are demanding more from their digital technology providers as they seek to make their mark and GoDaddy is committed to developing innovative solutions that meet these needs and help grow Britain's SME industry.

On achieving the milestone Andrew Low Ah Kee, Executive Vice President, GoDaddy International, said, "Reaching 1 million .UK domains demonstrates the value GoDaddy brings to customers by helping them create powerful digital identities. What is even more exciting to us than the milestone itself is the fact that we've grown our .UK domains under management by over 50% in the last 24 months. Our organic growth is a reflection that our purpose-built product and exceptional customer care resonate strongly with the UK market. We're committed to growing our UK business and are excited to continue supporting the digital revolution taking place in the UK."

Russell Haworth, Managing Director at Nominet, the official registry for UK domain names, commented: "It's a significant achievement to reach a million .uk and registrations, and the rate of growth is impressive. Like GoDaddy, we are committed to making the case for more businesses having their own space online, helping create new opportunities for us all."
