In 2010, The Seattle Times reported that GoDaddy managed more than 43 million domain names and sold almost 50% of new domain names registered.[1] At that time, Parsons said that the company had made a profit each year since 2001 and was "significantly cash flow positive", worth "well in excess of a $1 billion".[1]
