GoDaddy’s domain sales topped $1 billion for the first time last year, CEO Blake Irving told analysts this week.
The milestone was revealed as the registrar reported its fourth-quarter and full-year 2016 earnings late Wednesday.
In the fourth quarter, the company had a net loss of $800,000, compared to a year-ago loss of $500,000, on revenue that was up 14.2% at $485.9 million.
For the year, its loss was $21.9 million, compared to $120.4 million in 2015, on revenue that was up 15% at $1.85 billion.
GoDaddy also breaks out its revenue by segment, showing that domains revenue was up 11.2% at $242.5 million for the fourth quarter and up 11% at $927.8 million for the year.
Domain “bookings” — a somewhat informal measure that gives an indication of cash sales from domain names (as opposed to revenue under GAAP accounting) — surpassed $1 billion for the first time, Irving said.
