Following months of speculation, GoDaddy today filed for its initial public offering with the SEC.

Famous for its raunchy ads and elephant killing chief executive, the domain registrar and Web host currently serves 12 million customers.

According to the filing, GoDaddy hired Morgan Stanley, J.P. Morgan, and Citigroup to coordinate the stock sale. The firm shares that it “generated $1.4 billion” last year, “up from $753 million in 2009.”

Owned by private equity firms KKR and Silver Lake Management since 2011, GoDaddy last year bought Web hosting darling Media Temple, and Locu, a startup that makes it easier for people to find local merchants online.
