GoDaddy announced the launch of a new mobile app for domain investors, aptly called GoDaddy Investor. It's now available on iOS and Android, and enables investors to watch and bid on domains at auction and stay on top of their current bids.
As the company rightly notes, aftermarket domain auctions are highly competitive and time-sensitive, so this app seems like a no-brainer.
"GoDaddy Investor offers several additional features not previously available," the company says. "After downloading the app, domain investors are able to monitor a watch list of active expiry domain auctions in real time, as well as view their bidding history. Investors can also see the auction history for each domain, including the number of bidders and the prices of their bids. Investors can also place proxy bids and securely re-authenticate with their Auction PIN (Android, iOS) or Touch ID (iOS). A streamlined, visual dashboard count shows, at-a-glance, how many auctions investors have won, bid on, or are watching overall. Finally, since auctions are won and lost in an instant, push notifications will immediately alert investors when they've been outbid on auctions that are ending soon."
"We worked closely with our domain investors to bring the same great investing experience to mobile that they've enjoyed on desktop for years," said Paul Nicks, GoDaddy's Senior Director of Aftermarket. "The new GoDaddy Investor app was designed with the timely nature of domain bids in mind, allowing investors to register valuable pre-owned domain names, win more auctions and keep a closer eye on their bids, no matter where they are."
The app is available in the App Store and Google Play.
GoDaddy also announced a new Logo Design service. More on that here.
