Go Daddy, the world's biggest Web hosting and domain name registrar, will locate a new office in Hiawatha, Iowa. The move will create 60 jobs immediately, and add another 100 to 200 positions over the next year.
"Go Daddy is happy to put the speculation to rest and focus on our expansion plans in Hiawatha," said Go Daddy Founder and CEO Bob Parsons. "I'm just back from spending some time in the office there and I can tell you we're going to be rocking and rolling out of Iowa in no time."
The company, which is based in Scottsdale, Arizona, was also considering Cedar Rapids for the facility. Go Daddy chose Hiawatha for its technology-driven work force.
Go Daddy will hire skilled developers and customer care associates. It has more than 8 million customers worldwide.
