Earlier this week, GoDaddy announced a new forum for customers to ask various questions about GoDaddy products and services. The forum can be found by visiting GoDaddy.com/community.
When I visited the forum while logged into my GoDaddy account, it asked me to create a username. I believe people who are not logged into their GoDaddy accounts will still be able to visit the forum, although I am pretty sure they need a username in order to start threads or post comments. The username creation screen was very simple.
I would imagine that the most relevant forum section for people who invest in domain names is the “Manage Domains” section. There are nearly 100 threads already. Some of the current topics of discussion include things like Sedo MLS, best practices for selling a domain name, recovering expired domain names, researching domain names, transferring domain names, and basically everything in between.
This forum will likely be most beneficial to people who are new to the domain space. It will be interesting to see if the forum evolves into a forum that would be of interest to serious domain investors. If that were the case, the Managing Domains section would need to have more sub sections for sales, appraisals, news, and other topics that are of interest to domain investors. My bet is that GoDaddy does not have the desire to run a full-on domain forum, but we shall see how it evolves.
For now, the GoDaddy community forum would be a good place to ask questions about GoDaddy products and services.
