GoDaddy BPO employees expected to double in the Philippines

GoDaddy, the world’s top website hosting firm, is expected to raise the number of employees at its Philippine business process outsourcing (BPO) office. The move comes as the company launched a new website builder targeting the Philippines’ thriving micro, small and medium enterprises. The US-listed GoDaddy entered the Philippine market in February 2016 and has since seen 25% customer growth. GoDaddy currently has around 71 million website domains under its management, which accounts for 21% of the global total. GoDaddy chief executive officer Blake Irving said only about 40% of people in the Philippines have a web presence.
