The company on Tuesday reported that the Monday after the game was its biggest sales day in company history. The company provided Mashable with the following stats that illustrate a big increase over the comparable day in 2012:

  • Hosting sales jumped 45%.
  • Dot-com domain sales rose 40%.
  • New mobile customers increased by 35%.
  • The company added 10,000 customers in total.

Go Daddy, a Super Bowl advertiser for the past nine years, ran two ads during the game, including ”Perfect Match,” which featured supermodel Bar Refaeli making out with a nerdy-looking guy and ”,” which showed entrepreneurs across the world coming up with ideas though only one acts fast and secures a .co domain name.

What is wrong with people! I’ve already tried to minimize my business with that tasteless and horrible company. Their “Perfect Match” ad just made me want to go out and anti-evangelize GoDaddy. My word what is wrong with people?
