DNAcademy Acquired by GoDaddy 🎉
By Michael Cyger , Founder & Instructor of DNAcademy
On Monday, March 21, GoDaddy acquired the content and related assets of DNAcademy, which will be integrated into the GoDaddy Domains product offering over the next several months.
In addition, I am pleased to share that I joined GoDaddy as a full-time employee, leading this initiative as GoDaddy’s first Director of Education. In this role, I will facilitate learning within the field of domain name investing – not only through advanced online education and tools, but also by creating connections and highlighting successes within our industry.
Over the past seven years, DNAcademy created the finest educational curriculum and toolset available, and we’re honored to have taught thousands of people around the world. Joining GoDaddy will allow us to amplify our reach through GoDaddy’s trusted relationship with the owners of more than 84 million domain names under management.
While we figure out how DNAcademy content and related assets will be integrated into GoDaddy, I wanted to provide some clarity on the interim period:
If you’re a current DNAcademy member and have questions not answered here, please submit your inquiry to me via our contact form.
A large percentage of GoDaddy revenue is generated from domain names, and with this acquisition I believe the company is making a statement: education and tools will make their customers more successful, and GoDaddy invests in their customers’ success.
This is the start of a new, amazing phase of domain name investing education. Thank you to DNAcademy instructors and contributors – Aline Carriere, Jason Sheppard, Keith DeBoer and James Iles – and thank you to our members and partners.
