Go Daddy Acquires M.dot

Go Daddy has acquired M.dot, Inc., a mobile app for small business website creation and management.

The financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

As also hinted by Go Daddy CEO Blake Irving, the addition of M.dot will allow Go Daddy’s 11 million customers to create and manage mobile websites from their smartphones. In late 2011, Go Daddy received an investment from KKR, Silver Lake and Technology Crossover Ventures and since then has started growing internationally.

Founded by Dominik Balogh and Pavel Serbajlo in June 2012 and backed by Floodgate, SV Angel and Archimedes Labs, M.dot provides an app that offers mobile website creation based on pre-loaded templates with custom features, such as store location, driving directions, tap-to-call, galleries, business hours and price lists, all in a user-interface designed for mobile device screens. It also includes a blog feature, which allows users to write and insert photos and video with rich text capabilities. It integrates with Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, YouTube and Dropbox.
The company will operate from Go Daddy’s Sunnyvale office.
