GeoTrust vs. Go Daddy - two items
This week we had a pair of noteworthy items in the battle of GeoTrust vs. Go Daddy for the low-end SSL market. The first item is that the seventh Alexa-Netcraft index once again puts GeoTrust far ahead of Go Daddy in terms of actual SSL usage on the world's million most visited sites. GeoTrust has 40% more domains under its protection than Go Daddy does. This momentum is fueled by the increased attention the industry has been paying to the rivalry between GeoTrust and Go Daddy. Now the latest development in that rivalry is our new Go Daddy ad parody from GeoTrust, which already is garnering attention from SSL industry watchers.
