GoDaddy has launched its services in India and has appointed Rajiv Sodhi as Managing Director of Go Daddy India. Rajiv Sodhi was till recently the Director of SMB and Cloud Business at Microsoft India.
As per the company release, India has been identified as a priority market for Go Daddy’s global expansion and India is expected to be Go Daddy’s largest international office before the end of the year.
From what we know, consolidation has already begun in this industry and one of the larger home grown (domain/hosting company) player is in acquisition talks with a US based firm.
Quick suggestion to GoDaddy India team: Localize the India site (http://in.godaddy.com/). Currently, it’s no different from your US site (get a desi ‘GoDaddy girl?’) and that’s not cool.
