Go Daddy(R) Experiences Industry-Leading Growth in Issuance of New, Secure SSL Certificates

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The Go Daddy Group, Inc., parent company of GoDaddy.com(R), the No. 1 registrar of domain names worldwide, announced today that it had the largest one-month gain amongst all certificate authorities for August with respect to new SSL-enabled sites, according to Netcraft(R) LTD (http://www.netcraft.com/). Netcraft is a globally respected authority on the market share of web servers, operating systems, hosting providers, ISPs, encrypted transactions, electronic commerce, scripting languages and content technologies on the Internet.

In addition to the largest one-month gain, a review of other Netcraft data reveals that Go Daddy has recently achieved other milestones in the Secure SSL certificate market. First, in the last nine months, Go Daddy has quadrupled its Secure SSL certificate global market share. Second, in the domain-validated SSL market segment, which accounts for nearly 50% of all Secure SSL certificate sales worldwide, Go Daddy has experienced double-digit growth every month since Netcraft began reporting those statistics in October 2004.

"We are delighted with our continued success in the secure certificate marketplace and expect our growth to continue well into 2006 and beyond," said Bob Parsons, president and founder of Go Daddy. "More and more customers worldwide are discovering that Go Daddy offers the best SSL certificate products (with industry standard 128-bit encryption level, as well as high-grade 256-bit encryption), at the lowest prices and supported by the very best customer service," Parsons added.

"Go Daddy has become a strong competitor in the growing market for SSL certificates, as shown by its performance as the fastest growing certificate authority in August," said Netcraft analyst Rich Miller. "Go Daddy's pricing and product positioning is clearly proving attractive to small businesses adding e-Commerce capabilities to their web sites."

In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of Dev...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

"It is not necessary to change. Survival is not mandatory." – W. Edwards Deming. How often do we see this quote used in DevOps blogs without a hint of irony? It’s as if we need to instantly complete generations of evolution to stave off extinction, like trying to grow an extra lung overnight. DevOps or Die!!! So this is it – the dreaded DevOps transformation looms large. The department will be ‘shaken up’, practices will be ‘turned on their head’, and staff will be ‘taken out of their comfort zo...
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...

In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing.

We call it DevOps but much of the time there’s a lot more discussion about the needs and concerns of developers than there is about other groups. There’s a focus on improved and less isolated developer workflows. There are many discussions around collaboration, continuous integration and delivery, issue tracking, source code control, code review, IDEs, and xPaaS – and all the tools that enable those things. Changes in developer practices may come up – such as developers taking ownership of code ...
DevOps and microservices are permeating software engineering teams broadly, whether these teams are in pure software shops but happen to run a business, such Uber and Airbnb, or in companies that rely heavily on software to run more traditional business, such as financial firms or high-end manufacturers. Microservices and DevOps have created software development and therefore business speed and agility benefits, but they have also created problems; specifically, they have created software securi...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
I’m told that it has been 21 years since Scrum became public when Jeff Sutherland and I presented it at an Object-Oriented Programming, Systems, Languages & Applications (OOPSLA) workshop in Austin, TX, in October of 1995. Time sure does fly. Things mature. I’m still in the same building and at the same company where I first formulated Scrum.[1] Initially nobody knew of Scrum, yet it is now an open source body of knowledge translated into more than 30 languages[2] People use Scrum worldwide for ...
