Mid-January blues got you thinking about launching your next business someplace warm and tropical?

If you launch in Latin America, you can now use GoDaddy to help get your online presence established. The Scottsdale, Ariz.-based website domain registrar today launched its entire suite of products in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru and Venezuela, including both Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese services and customer support.

GoDaddy was for a long time known as that tech company with the provocative Super Bowl ads, but it has been making a concerted push to become the go-to service provider for small business owners to set up and promote their online presence.
