Scottsdale, Arizona – (The Hosting News) – March 11, 2009 – Web hosting domain registrar, GoDaddy, recently revealed that the newest Go Daddy representative comes from the world of fast cards, rather than cars.

Professional poker player, Vanessa Rousso, is the company’s newest Go Daddy Girl. The partnership takes shape just as Ms. Rousso plays in the 5th Annual National Heads-Up Poker Championship in Las Vegas. Go Daddy is both the tournament sponsor and the sponsor of NBC’s broadcast of the event, which airs on six consecutive Sundays starting in April.

Bob Parsons, CEO and Founder of Go Daddy remarked, ”Vanessa is smart, she’s aggressive and she’s hot. She has an economics degree from Duke. She’s working on a law degree at the University of Miami. And, like Go Daddy Girl Danica Patrick, she’s competing successfully in what has been a man’s sport. She is definitely Go Daddy material.”
A match-up between Ms. Rousso – known as the Lady Maverick of the professional poker circuit – and Go Daddy – a company known worldwide as an Internet maverick – is a prime pairing.
In recent years, Ms. Rousso has been one of the top female money earners on the tour. Last spring she won NBC’s Poker After Dark.
Ms. Rousso noted. ”Poker is my passion, but that actually started with my interest in economics. I know a strong company when I see one and Go Daddy is absolutely dominant. Go Daddy is a world leader in so many Internet categories, plus it has a reputation for being fun, edgy and aggressive. It’s just my style.”
People’s passion for poker has exploded in recent years, thanks in large part to the Internet. Industry experts believe some 70 million Americans play poker recreationally. According to a November 2008 CBS ’60 Minutes’ report, about half-a-million people are playing online at any given moment.
Ms. Rousso joins some big names at the Go Daddy table, including Go Daddy Girl and IndyCar Series’ most popular driver Danica Patrick, original Go Daddy Girl Candice Michelle, as well as NASCAR’s most popular driver and Go Daddy spokesman, Dale Earnhardt, Jr.
Mr. Parsons added, ”We’re all calculated risk takers. I have taken chances all my life. After all, 10 years ago, was a huge risk – that has paid off in spades.”
