GoDaddy Competitors Eye IPOs and Fundings After GoDaddy's $3 Billion Valuation

GoDaddy Inc. raised $460 million during its initial public offering March 31. The domain name and registration company had a post-IPO valuation of $3 billion.

GoDaddy was backed by private-equity firms KKR and Silver Lake Management, which acquired a majority stake in 2011. In the IPO, GoDaddy sold 23 million shares at $20 per share, and the share price rose as high as $26.15 during its day of trading.
