The Big Daddy of web hosting
In 1997, Bob Parsons launched Jomax Technologies as a service for the development of custom websites. In 1999, employees of the company decided that Jomax needed a new name. After brainstorming, they chose "Big Daddy", but found that bigdaddy.com was not available. Later Parsons suggested "Go Daddy" which was available, and thus Godaddy.com, the largest Internet domain registrar in the world, was born.
