In Q2 2019, GoDaddy’s domains revenue clocked $334.4 million, with nearly 4.6% QoQ and 9.7% YoY increase. The year-over-year growth in GoDaddy’s domains revenue was primarily driven by the increasing number of domain names managed by the company during the quarter, the international growth and increased aftermarket domain sales.
Domains revenue primarily consists of revenue from the sale of domain registration subscriptions, domain add-ons and aftermarket domain sales during a particular quarter. As the graph shows, the company has always been generating a majority of its quarterly revenue from the Domain division, compared to the other divisions.
In Q2 2018, the GoDaddy revenue from domains crossed $300-million mark for the first time, with an appreciable 15.8% year-over-year increase. However, the share of GoDaddy domains revenue to the company’s total revenue declined from 47.2% in Q2 2017 to 46.8% in Q2 2018.
One must note that Q4 2016 was the first time when the domains contribution to GoDaddy’s overall revenue declined below 50%. The total domains revenue clocked $242.5 million in the fourth quarter, representing 49.9% of the company’s total revenue.
