As an ICANN-accredited domain registrar, Go Daddy has lots of names under management, offers products at prices at less price than the competition and supports them all with world-class 24/7 customer service.

They develop their technology in-house, and do not outsource the support operations. This enables them to provide best support and ensure the advanced and competitively products and services.
