GoDaddy: Expanded Services Can Bring Growth; Buy (NYSE:GDDY)

GoDaddy: Expanded Services Can Bring Growth; Buy (NYSE:GDDY)

The news is reported by Spencer Platt.

I don’t agree with the Hold rating that Seeking Alpha gave to the company. The decades-long survival of GoDaddy in the web hosting business is proof of its resilience. The revenue CAGR ofGDDY is 12.0%. The growth grade of D+ is the reason why Seeking Alpha has a Hold rating forGDDY.

Seeking a premium.

The majority of Seeking Alpha authors have a hold rating for the company. The article will show that GoDaddy has more than one redeeming quality. Other authors and the artificial intelligence of Seeking Alpha’s quantitative platform are not happy with GoDaddy.

The 10-year average growth rate of the company is 15.6%. The chart shows that GoDaddy is moving in a different direction. is a financial data website.

It’s not possible for GoDaddy to meet the 20% revenue CAGR requirement. Web hosting services are provided by Amazon, Microsoft, and Google. The cloud computing giants are a problem for the company. Amazon Web Services has a $1 to $3 monthly web hosting plan.

The growth of the company is fortified by its affiliates and subsidiaries. A developer like me can create a lot of websites under my custom branding, but only if they are powered by a network of server.

The number one is still profitable.

I have a buy rating forGDDY because of its resilience. It is the number one website host. Amazon Web Services has a 11.1% share of the market. The company has more than 21 million customers.

If one of the companies buys another, they will become the number one web hosting company. UpWork contractors and sub-contractors are included in the 21 million loyalists of Godaddy. The web hosting industry is growing and consolidation is needed. A $288.29 billion industry is expected to be created by the business.

There is a website called Market Research Future.

According to Fortune Business Insights, the global web hosting industry will be worth $267.10 billion by the year’s end. This industry will be worth $254.86 billion by 2029 according to Data Bridge Research.

The industry is growing at a rate of 16%.

It’s not a high-margin venture.

Seeking a premium.

The net income margin of the company is very low. The Information Technology sector’s average is 4%. The majority of its peers are doing worse. The net income margin is much higher than the average margin over the last five years.

Despite the competition,GDDY has improved profitability.

Is the company worth as much as it’s worth?

The high valuation ratios can be blamed on the Hold rating that other Seeking Alpha authors and Seeking AlphaQuant gave toGDDY. The chart below shows that the GAAP P/E of 37.37x is higher than the one of GOOG. The P/E valuation ofGDDY is much lower than that of AMZN.

Seeking a premium.

There is a significant difference between the two companies. It is unjust. The revenue CAGR of GoDaddy is higher than that of AMZN. The net income margin of AMZN is less than that ofGDDY. The efficiency ofGDDY is higher than that of AMZN.

The premium of

When compared to Amazon, GoDaddy is not overvalued. It’s good to know that the much smaller GoDaddy can beat Amazon.

The business of domain name sales and web hosting is unprofitable. Amazon sells low-margin products and services. GoDaddy is not sitting still.

The services have been expanded.

The company is more than just a vendor of domain names. It is a Microsoft partner. GoDaddy could be helped by being an affiliate of Microsoft.

We should be happy that GoDaddy sells affordable pro email to Filipinos. The dollar is worth 58 Philippine pesos. It’s not for everyone. Only the top customers of the company are eligible.


The company is giving its customers access to its subscription-based web security services. The price for a month ofWordPress hosting is $5.16 per month. Website owners with a lot of money may benefit from the services of GoDaddy.


There is a cheaper alternative to the $12.98/month Canva Pro. GoDaddy Studio is a templates-driven design app that helps ordinary people make impressive logos, brochures, newsletters, and other marketing graphic materials

The Digital Marketing Suite is offered by Godaddy. It costs between $9.99 and $29.99 per month for email campaign, social media, and other marketing services. The future role ofGDDY in the global digital marketing service should be calculated to evaluate the investment quality. It’s worth keeping an eye on the venture into the digital marketing industry. One or two segments of digital marketing should be the focus of the company. It’s not optimal to compete against all-in-one digital marketing platforms.

There is an opportunity in the email marketing industry. The 17% CAGR of email marketing can be laser focused on by the company. This year it is estimated to be worth $12.4 billion, and will grow to $59.8 billion by 2032.

It was the conclusion.

The no.1 web hosting company is Godaddy. This is in spite of the competition from the two cloud providers. The declining sales growth is not a dealbreaker.

Web security, templates-driven design services, and digital marketing are some of the services offered by GoDaddy. The non-core subscription services could help the company.

Go long on and enjoy yourself. It could eventually be acquired by one of the aforementioned companies. It’s possible that the web hosting market will go higher. The popularity ofPWAs and WebAssembly is to blame. GoDaddy should start marketing itself as an affordable host of PWA and Web Assembly applications.

It’s an option for GoDaddy to become a reselling of Microsoft’s application hosting services. Spending a lot on server infrastructure is required for hosting applications.

Cloud gaming, online betting/gambling, and augmented reality dating sites could be hosted by GoDaddy.
