Jacksonville-based Web.com began the year on a high note — including its highest stock prices in three years and news that the company's stock was elevated to Nasdaq's Global Select Market. Web.com, founded in Jacksonville in 1997, builds websites and online marketing for small businesses. It went public in 2005 and trades under the symbol WWWW. The stock trades for about

$10, after hovering closer to $3 last summer. It's been rising following the company's acquisition last year of Register.com, which is expected to increase revenue by 80%. Analysts also liked Web.com's recently announced partnership with SuperMedia, a small-business advertising agency that offers directories, direct-mail and other products. The partnership gives SuperMedia's clients access to a Web.com-powered website, hosting and other marketing services.

Ballot Box

Florida's "growler beer" bill is about to become law - only lacks Gov. Scott's signature. Your opinion?

  • Good! About time.
  • I'm neutral on the idea of craft breweries being able to sell 64-ounce "growlers."
  • I am against this bill becoming law.
