GoDaddy Adds MX Domains to the Mix
GoDaddy Adds MX Domains to TLD Offerings
Web hosting and domain registrar GoDaddy announced yesterday it is adding Mexico's MX domains to its portfolio.
You don't see too many .MX domains (the country code top-level domain of Mexico) as it was only offered to a few select institutions in the last two decades. Now, Mexico is offering the extension for worldwide use. There is a lot of potential for growth in that specific geographic and cultural market. According to Internet World Stats, the number of Spanish-speaking Internet users has grown 619 percent in the last eight years. More than 130 million Spanish speakers use the Internet, including 27 million users in Mexico, making it one of the top three languages on the Web.
Go Daddy opened registration for sub-extension .COM.MX in May. Now, anyone who owned a sub-extension prior to March 1, 2009 can participate in pre-registration for a .MX domain at GoDaddy.com.
