Before we get into the details, keep in mind this move was already made back in 2005 when Google had applied for being a domain registrar. They have finally opened up part of their entire domain purchasing section. Therefore with this kind of a move it is clear that GoDaddy is going to face to competition in the near future. As per statistical data from Tim Hornyak of PCWorld.com GoDaddy – which is the world’s largest domain name registrar – manages over 57 million domains. Phew!
