Web Hosting is more than hosting

Many years ago, web hosts could get buy with just offering web hosting. The stakes have gone higher and higher as web hosts have offered lower prices and more features.
With this in mind, web host GoDaddy.com, announced the acquisition of Innerprise, a privately held company specializing in the development of information cataloging and searching software.
If you have a lot of content on your web site and people can not find it, that’s NOT good.
Go Daddy, will integrate Innerprise’s operations into the Go Daddy headquarters in Scottsdale, Ariz. The Company will incorporate Innerprise’s search products, including Enterprise Search 2004 and Innerprise Hosted Search, into the Go Daddy product catalog, augmenting the Company’s complete line of Web development tools including domain name registration, hosting, email systems, SSL certificates, and other complementary products and services that assist customers in building and maintaining a presence on the Internet.
“We are excited to integrate Innerprise’s unique product offerings into our diverse Go Daddy product and service catalog. The Innerprise products augment Go Daddy’s Web site development tools by adding a unique search option for consumer or corporate visitors,” said Bob Parsons, president and founder of The Go Daddy Group. “This acquisition strengthens Go Daddy’s commitment to its customers to provide the best business solutions available on the market today, at prices every business can afford.”
Innerprise’s search software programs offer corporations and organizations the ability to index, catalog and search the Internet, a corporate Intranet or a corporate Web site for information valuable to their company and customers. Wells Fargo Bank and Target are among the hundreds of customers that currently utilize Innerprise’s software solutions.
Go Daddy also plans to utilize the Innerprise software as the underpinning of a new information management product line to be offered in the Fourth Quarter of 2004.
“This acquisition is a very good fit for Go Daddy and Innerprise. The Innerprise technology complements Go Daddy’s dedication to providing its customers with solutions that help them to grow their business and satisfy their customers needs,” says Parsons.
