Michael Cyger’s Last Day at GoDaddy

In March of 2022, GoDaddy announced that it acquired DNAcademy, the domain investing education platform founded by Michael Cyger. Following the acquisition, Michael joined GoDaddy as its first Director of Education. Since that time, Michael has been helping to integrate DNAcademy within GoDaddy’s ecosystem, and where it has been rebranded as GoDaddy Domain Academy.

Last month, Michael shared that he will be leaving GoDaddy, and today is his last day:

As I recall, Michael was not an early domain investor. Michael launched Domain Sherpa in 2010, where he shared video interviews and discussions with domain investors and developers who operate on great domain names. The platform grew and evolved, and Michael sold it in 2017. All the while, Michael continued to grow his own domain name portfolio.

I am not sure what Michael has planned for himself, but I am sure he will continue to be active in the domain investment community. Michael has always had a positive and uplifting personality, and he is an asset to our community. I know I am looking forward to seeing what he does next.
