SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Alert the media. Mark your calendars. The second annual Web Professionals’ Day is tomorrow, April 29. Go Daddy, the Internet’s top Web address company, created the holiday to honor all online professionals – the people who help develop, run, secure and repair Web sites around the world.

According to IDC, two-thirds of small to medium sized business have their Web Professional in-house, elevating the importance of a company’s Web professional.

“We believe the Internet is the heart of the new economy,” said Go Daddy CEO and Founder Bob Parsons. “If you are in business these days, you really do need an online presence. Keeping your site up and running with fresh content is what it’s all about, so if you work with a Web professional, why not give them your appreciation?”

Go Daddy introduced the holiday last year and is keeping the tradition alive by offering an animated greeting, specially designed for Web professionals.

"Web Professionals are diverse and provide a great skill set for any organization," said Bill Cullifer, Executive Director, World Organization of Webmasters, a not-for-profit professional association serving Web professionals worldwide. "Considering the key role the Internet plays in businesses today, these professionals are proving their worth day in and day out."

Go Daddy’s Web Professionals’ Day animation does not require users to be customers or to provide contact information.

The greeting is a link that can be copied and emailed directly or sent through a “Share with a Friend” page. The greeting affords both users and Web pros a promotional code to save money on any of Go Daddy’s 50-plus products, most of which are aimed at creating, designing and protecting Web sites.
