Welcome to the world of tomorrow, where emerging technologies continue to shrink workweeks and give you more time to relax on the beach. Or, for many us, enable us to work on planes, trains and at our kids’ soccer games.
As I write this I’m in Los Angeles, hundreds of miles away from my home and office. Next week I’ll be in Las Vegas. My phone, laptop and a solid WiFi connection are the only tools I need to stay connected and productive. This is typical of many people today. We are on the go more and need to be able to work from anywhere, simply to keep up with the competition.
That’s certainly true if you’re a domain investor. No matter where you are, you need to keep up-to-date with the latest domain auctions, see changes in real time, and act fast. Technology can make the difference between losing a prized domain and walking away with the asset you need to take your business to the next level.
Finally, there’s an app for that!
Introducing the GoDaddy Investor mobile app
Whether you are an Apple fanatic like me or a die-hard Android user, the new GoDaddy Investor mobile app lets you take advantage of our expiring domain auctions from anywhere you have an Internet connection and mobile device. Now, it’s easy to stay on top of your domain auctions on the go. You can watch and bid directly from the app on your mobile device — and it’s free.
GoDaddy Investor, the new mobile app made for our domain investors, helps you to win valuable pre-owned domain names anytime, anywhere.
At the touch of a button you can:
- Monitor auctions in real time
- Bid on domains and know immediately if you’re the highest bidder or have been outbid
- See the auction history for each domain, including how many bidders there are and how much they’ve bid
- View auctions on your watch list
- Place proxy bids
- Use Auctions PIN or TouchID to re-authenticate
One of my favorite features? The ability to set favorites within the list of names you are bidding on or watching, and then filter by those results only. This allows power users to focus on key domain names and cut to the chase during live auctions, when split-second decisions really count.

What’s next for GoDaddy Investor?
We developed this app closely with some of our customers, who beat it up and let us know what they liked and what functionality they’d like to see added to the app. As a result, the first release of GoDaddy Investor is pretty amazing — and we’ve got plans to make it even more robust with improvements like push notifications and expanded ability to bid on and watch other auction types.
