CALIFORNIA: Blake Irving, CEO of Go Daddy, an Internet domain registrar and web hosting company announced that the company has acquired M.dot, a mobile app for small business website creation and management during the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Go Daddy office located in Sunnyvale, California last Monday.
Blake shared that mobile Internet traffic has grown more than 10 times from 1 per cent to 13 per cent of total web usage while smartphone and tablet shipments surpassed PCs over the last three years. Go Daddy customers are using their smartphones to manage their online presence more and more everyday as a means to find and acquire customers, Blake added. Through this acquisition, Go Daddy’s existing 11 million customers can enjoy an easy way to create and manage compelling mobile websites from their smartphones.
M.dot was founded by Dominik Balogh and Pavel Serbajlo in June 2012. They have the backing of leading Silicon Valley investors including Floodgate, SV Angel and Archimedes Labs and have been featured by Apple in the iTunes App Store on multiple occasions.
