It seems that the demand for these types of domain names is still high, despite losing popularity over the years.


The company faced negative publicity in 2011 when it supported SOPA, a bill that would expand the powers of copyright holders and limit free distribution of content online. GoDaddy eventually backtracked due to widespread criticism and loss of customers.

GoDaddy has been known for controversial ads, with the most provocative being the one aired during the 2005 Super Bowl featuring a character wearing a tight T-shirt with the company logo. The ad was viewed as vulgar and sеxist by many.

Originally, the company considered changing its name to Big Daddy, but that domain was already taken. Instead, they chose the similar-sounding GoDaddy, hoping to evoke a smile and be easily memorable, according to Parsons.

It's worth noting that despite these controversies, GoDaddy remains one of the largest domain registrars in the world and continues to be popular among users.
