Customers Awarded Prizes to Make Their Sites Go Daddy Go!

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- It has been said, if you run a business without a Web site these days, you aren’t really competing. Yet a lack of money, time and know-how are three reasons some businesses stick to the old-school approach. Go Daddy has stripped away the excuses awarding three winners in its Custom Web Site Contest.

Gail Udell, Nick Barr and Heather Zook won the privilege of having the Go Daddy Custom Web Site team build, hone and spruce their Internet sites. Each winner receives a Go Daddy Custom Web Site, which includes a 20-page Custom Page Layout design, a one-on-one design consultation and one full year of hosting on the Go Daddy Premium Custom Web Site Service.

All of Go Daddy’s more than 4.7 million customers were invited to write a compelling story about why they or their business should be chosen for a Custom Web Site. The three lucky winners were formally announced today.

The contest is the brainchild of Go Daddy’s CEO and Founder Bob Parsons who appeared in front of a live audience on national television during an episode of The Big Idea aimed at aspiring entrepreneurs. The “Ultimate Renegade,” as he was billed in October, heard one too many stories about budding business leaders who had inspirational stories and solid products but didn’t have an online presence.

“It doesn’t have to cost hundreds of dollars, you don’t need to be a tech whiz and we can help you get up and running as quickly as anyone in the business – without a doubt,” Parsons promised. “Our designers do a great job of bringing a customer’s vision to life.”

The vision is at the heart of every successful entrepreneur’s story. The three winners selected produced stories voicing their visions that struck a chord with Parsons and his executive staff.

Winner Gail Udell of the Emerald Family Down Syndrome Network explained in her submission, “Our goal is to be a community of supporters for our children. We were missing a big piece by not having a Web presence, and were limited in what we could do.”

Watch for the winners’ newly-designed Web sites will be presented at beginning in early March.

Go Daddy is the leading Web host provider in North America and industry analyst Netcraft ranks Go Daddy as one of the most “reliable hosting companies in the world.” All Go Daddy hosting plans are backed by world-class data centers and a 99.9 percent uptime guarantee.
