Balance Sheet

Business Outlook

For the second quarter ending June 30, 2015, the Company expects revenues in the range of $390 – $395 million and adjusted EBITDA in the range of $75 – $78 million.

For the full year ending December 31, 2015, the Company expects revenues in the range of $1,595 – $1,605 million and adjusted EBITDA in the range of $322 – $327 million.

Initial Public Offering

On April 7, 2015, GoDaddy Inc. successfully closed its initial public offering (IPO) of 26 million shares of Class A common stock at a public offering price of $20 per share, which included 3 million shares sold pursuant to the underwriters’ over-allotment option and 2.5 million shares sold to certain affiliates. GoDaddy received $491.8 million in proceeds, net of underwriting discounts and commissions, from the IPO.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements which are subject to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements are based on estimates and information available to us at the time of this press release and are not guarantees of future performance. Statements in this release involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. If the risks or uncertainties ever materialize or the assumptions prove incorrect, our results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. All statements other than statements of historical fact could be deemed forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to: any projections of product or service availability, technology developments, customer growth, addressable market size or other future events; any statements about historical results that may suggest future trends for our business; any statements regarding our plans, strategies or objectives with respect to future operations; any statements regarding future economic conditions; and any statements of assumptions underlying any of the foregoing.

Actual results could differ materially from our current expectations as a result of many factors, including, but not limited to: the unpredictable nature of our rapidly evolving market; fluctuations in our financial and operating results; our rate of growth; interruptions or delays in our service or our web hosting; breaches of our security measures; the impact of any previous or future acquisitions; our ability to continue to release, and gain customer acceptance of, our existing and future products and services; our ability to manage our growth; our ability to hire, retain and motivate employees; the effects of competition; technological, regulatory and legal developments; intellectual property litigation; and developments in the economy, financial markets and credit markets.

Additional risks and uncertainties that could affect GoDaddy’s financial results are included under the captions “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” in the Company’s prospectus dated March 31, 2015, filed with the SEC on April 1, 2015, which is available on the Company’s website at www.GDDY.com and on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. Additional information will also be set forth in other filings that the Company makes with the SEC from time to time. All forward-looking statements in this press release are based on information available to the Company as of the date hereof, and GoDaddy does not assume any obligation to update the forward-looking statements provided to reflect events that occur or circumstances that exist after the date on which they were made.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP), this press release includes financial measures defined as “non-GAAP financial measures” by the SEC including Bookings, Adjusted EBITDA, Unlevered Free Cash Flow, Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) and Net Debt. These measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies in our industry, as those other companies may calculate their non-GAAP financial measures differently, particularly related to adjustments for acquisition accounting and non-recurring expenses.

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful as a supplement in evaluating our ongoing operational performance and enhancing an overall understanding of our past financial performance. The non-GAAP financial measures included in this release should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation between each non-GAAP financial measure and its nearest GAAP equivalent is included in this release following the financial statements. We use both GAAP and non-GAAP measures to evaluate and manage our operations.

Total Bookings. Total bookings represents gross cash receipts from the sale of products to customers in a given period before giving effect to certain adjustments, primarily net refunds granted in the period. Total bookings provides valuable insight into the sales of our products and the performance of our business since we typically collect payment at the time of sale and recognize revenue ratably over the term of our customer contracts. We report total bookings without giving effect to refunds granted in the period because refunds often occur in periods different from the period of sale for reasons unrelated to the marketing efforts leading to the initial sale. Accordingly, by excluding net refunds, we believe total bookings reflects the effectiveness of our sales efforts in a given period.

Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA is a measure of our performance that aligns our bookings and operating expenditures, and is the primary metric management uses to evaluate the profitability of our business. We calculate adjusted EBITDA as net loss excluding depreciation and amortization, interest expense (net), provision (benefit) for income taxes and adjustments to the TRA liability, equity-based compensation expense, change in deferred revenue, change in prepaid and accrued registry costs, acquisition and sponsor-related costs and a non-recurring reserve for sales taxes. As a result of our business model, we typically collect payment at the time of sale and generally recognize revenue ratably over the term of our customer contracts. At the time of a domain sale, we also incur the obligation for the domain name registry fees associated with the customer contract. As a result, sales to customers increase our deferred revenue and prepaid and accrued registry costs. We therefore adjust net loss for changes in deferred revenue and changes in the associated prepaid and accrued registry costs to facilitate a better comparison of our performance from period to period.

Unlevered Free Cash Flow. Unlevered free cash flow is a measure of our performance used by management to evaluate our business prior to the impact of our capital structure and after purchases of property and equipment, such as data center and infrastructure investments, that can be used by us for strategic opportunities and strengthening our balance sheet. However, given our debt obligations, unlevered free cash flow does not represent residual cash flow available for discretionary expenses.

ARPU. We calculate ARPU as total revenue during the preceding 12-month period divided by the average of the number of total customers at the beginning and end of the period. ARPU provides insight into our ability to sell additional products to customers, though the impact to date has been muted due to our continued growth in total customers. The impact of purchase accounting adjustments makes comparisons of ARPU among historical periods less meaningful; however, in future periods, as the effects of purchase accounting decrease, ARPU will become a more meaningful metric.

Net Debt. We define net debt as gross debt less cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments. Gross debt consists of the current portion of long-term debt plus long-term debt and unamortized original issue discounts on long-term debt. We believe the presentation of net debt provides useful information to investors because our management reviews net debt as part of its management of our overall liquidity, financial flexibility, capital structure and leverage. Furthermore, certain analysts and debt rating agencies monitor our net debt as part of their assessments of our business.

Godaddy Vs HostGator Web Hosting User Interface

Godaddy Vs Hostgator Web Hosting Service

There are bunch of features that one need to consider while choosing a web hosting service. These includes the server response time, page loading speed, customer support and reliability, fees and user interface or control panel. Admin user interface is of great importance, because this is the only area where customer test drive or interact with the web server. A more friendly user interface will result in higher satisfaction among members and happy to stay hosting with your company.

This is a UI comparison between the two hosting giant companies namely: Hostgator and Godaddy. How it affects the audience conversion to buy their hosting service.

Godaddy Vs Hostgator Hosting Control Panel

User interface is probably the number one factor for many visitors to turn down godaddy as their web hosting destination. The reason is that they are not using the world most widely used hosting administration interface called cPanel.

godaddy-hosting-dashboard-control-panel

Godaddy’s own in-house custom built control panel (aka Hosting Dashboard) definitely falls short in comparison to the benefits of world’s best cPanel. For example if you need to install scripts using automatic installer then godaddy admin interface will be bit troublesome to use.

hostgator-cpanel-administration-user-interface

For all newbie or naive hosting users trying to operate their website from cPanel and non-cpanel based platform, then you can expect more complaints from custom built platform.However on the other hand, if you are ready to spend little time and ready to get in touch with support team in case of issue, then godaddy will work just fine.

Hostgator Vs Godaddy User Interface – Why no cPanel for GD?

One of the reasons Godaddy lacks in hosting platform is that they jumped into web hosting service couple of years back whereas Hostgator is currently the number 1 hosting provider. This clearly shows host-gator has more experience in managing servers for user websites. At least 50% of website visitors who are interested in a hosting account will simply turn down and move away from your page if you do not offer cPanel service. On the other hand, members who bought the hosting might find it uncomfortable to deal with hosting problem and will cancel the plan and leave the hosting. In order to compete with other big names in hosting industry Godaddy will surely need to incorporate cPanel either as default or as an add-on service to their clients. Once they provide cPanel as their web hosting dashboard, they will be able to attract more customer to host their website on Godaddy servers.

cPanel is world’s leading industry standard and a must have server tool for managing hosting accounts on web servers. On the other hand GoDaddy’s award wining support can handle all your hosting issues and let your website run smoothly.

Google Domains For Starting Your Online Business

Google Domains Project Launched

A new registrar in domain name wars but this time it’s the internet’ giant Google! Yest that’s right Google has launched their domain registration and management service with their brand new service of “Google Domains” (Beta). This online business registration service is launched in January 2015 and offering global customers to buy web addresses of their choice.

Note: Domains project is still in Beta state and will be going through intense testing this year.

How to Open Google Domains Web Page?

Google Domains is a service just like other projects, so it is accessible via a subdomain as well as adding slash domain at end of Google website. Both urls are shared here:
http://domains.google.com
http://wwww.google.com/domains

Domain Name Prices by Google: Starting From $12 a Year

google-domain-prices-starting-from-$12-a-yearGoogle Domains Starting from $12 per year. This price might look same to other domain registrars but there is one hidden feature that makes it affordable in comparison to Godaddy, Namecheap etc. It is the private registration because Google gives a free private registration with any domain registration. So considering the privacy part at no additional fee makes it cheaper than most  domain providers. Prices vary if you select different domain endings or TLDs.  Google is offering 60 new domain endings. some of the supported TLD’s includes .actor, .clothing, .builders, .consulting, .ninja, .recipes etc. Each TLD price is different .com is the lowest with $12, rest of them cost higher, for example: .coffee is $30 and .company is $20 for one year subscription.

Google Domains User Interface: A Simple Dashboard

In terms of the web interface, it follows the existing Google policy of simplicity in a minimalist theme. Keeping the web interface to the point, only displaying what a visitor is looking for makes the website super clean and to the point.  There are just three navigation text in the header; Manage my domains, Home and Features.  There are tons of links in the footer but they take you away from Google Domains page.  Apart from that there is a domain search box with a cool background to attract all your attention,  One paragraph of text giving an overview of the Google domain name registration service and the pricing information. A colorful section about the supported website builders that you can use for your business. Finally there is a small section on online support at the end of the page. When you  search for a domain, the next page presented to you is too simple and straight forward with the search results and the suggestions.

What to Expect From Google Domains Internet Service?

Well Google does not start a project without estimating  the challenges it will face.  Internet Domain Registration is a big industry with GoDaddy being the top leader in the domain service. Surely there is a alarming situation for them and other competitors but we yet to see how well Google tackle the challenges. Competing with Namecheap, Register, Yahoo etc seems to be easy for Google in the coming years  but people won’t be ready to leave GoDaddy and Google’s domain project can only beat Go-Daddy if it manage to provide a better service. If the service is reliable then we will see a huge chunks of domains transferring to Google Domains from rest of the domain registrars worldwide.  What will happen if the service is good and Google offers a domain promotion with tons of benefits to existing domain owners? Logically speaking Google can turn the tables to its side within a decade but not without a reliable domain management.

Google Domains Project Could be a Game Changer for the Domain Name Industry.
