GoDaddy, a publicly traded company headquartered in the USA with nearly 17 million customers worldwide, is the place people come to name their idea, build a professional website, attract customers and manage their work. GoDaddy is a leader in making domain name registration fast, simple, and affordable for small businesses and entrepreneurs aspiring to create and manage their digital presence.

Under the agreement, eligible Tigo Rwanda Business customers on specific data plans will have access to a set of online tools to help get their business online in a fast, simple and affordable way. This includes: domain name registration and corporate email, both backed by GoDaddy’s award-winning 24/7 expert customer support. Thesolution is designed to help small businesses with secure, custom email accounts that can be accessed on any desktop or mobile device.
Tom Craig, Chief Business Officer, Millicom Africa said: “We are proud to partner with GoDaddy in order to help businesses in Rwanda and across our footprint in Africa build a successful web presence, that will enable them to reach new customers and grow their income. We strongly believe in the power of the internet for all businesses, however online presence for SMEs is still quite limited within Africa today. Our partnership with GoDaddy is the latest example of Tigo Business’ increasing support to small & medium enterprises to expand their businesses.”
Tigo Rwanda is the first operation across Millicom Africa to offer GoDaddy services to its business customers.
“We are delighted to partner with Millicom in offering GoDaddy domain name and email online services to Tigo Business customers in Rwanda,” said Stefano Maruzzi, GoDaddy Vice President of EMEA. “With our domain name registration and business email productivity solutions, businesses in Rwanda will now be able to more easily create and manage their venture’s digital presence.”
