GoDaddy just launched in 11 Asian markets, announcing that it is now available in 10 languages and 14 markets across Asia.

These include: Hong Kong (English and Traditional Chinese), Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia (English and Malay), Philippines (English and Filipino), Singapore (English and Simplified Chinese), South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.

CEO Blake Irving said, "Asia is home to one of the largest, most vibrant small business communities in the world. As Internet growth and smartphone adoption continue to accelerate across the region, it's important that these businesses are able to create strong digital identities that will help them achieve their goals and compete online. GoDaddy is committed to providing the products and services that will enable Asia entrepreneurs to easily start, confidently grow and successfully run their own ventures."

"Small and medium enterprises serve as the economic backbone in Asia," GoDaddy says. "SMEs account for over 97% of all enterprises and employ over half of the workforce across APEC economies. At the same time, more people in Asia are utilizing the Internet and connected devices to stay informed and make purchases. 72% of people in Hong Kong access the Internet daily and 74% use a smartphone; 81% of people in Singapore access the Internet and 88% use a smartphone. Overall, Internet growth across Asia has grown 1,319% between 2000-2015."

Products available in the new markets include: domains, website hosting, website-building tools, and business applications.

GoDaddy is now available to businesses in a total of 53 markets, supporting 26 languages, and 44 currencies.
