US-headquartered internet domain registrar and web hosting company, GoDaddy may look to open data centres in India to be closer to its local customers.
The company’s data centers are currently located in Singapore. “We don’t have a stated plan yet but we may look at opening an Indian data centre to be closer to customers in India. Some customers prefer local presence,” said Nikhil Arora, managing director, GoDaddy India.
The focus on a local data centre stems from the fact that roughly 50% of the company’s new customers are coming from Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities.
“We are focusing on becoming the trusted partners of influencers and professionals like web designers. A web designer has an average of 20 to 30 customers,” Arora said.
