GoDaddy launches domain investors app

GoDaddy (NYSE: GDDY) has launched its first mobile app for domain investors, the company said.

The GoDaddy Investor app, launching on iOS and Android, will allow investors to watch and bid on domains at auction and stay on top of their current bids all from their mobile device.

Aftermarket domain auctions are time-sensitive and highly competitive, and it´s critical that investors are able to easily participate at any time and from anywhere, not just from their computers.

GoDaddy Investor offers several additional features not previously available. 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.

GoDaddy Investor v 1.0 is now available on iPhone and iPad (iOS 8 and above) and Android phones (4.1 and above) in English-speaking markets.
