GoDaddy Testing New Landing Pages?

Logan Flatt noticed what appears to be a new GoDaddy / Afternic inquiry landing page, which he shared on Twitter today:

When I visited the domain name and a few others I know are for sale and parked on Afternic nameservers, I saw the standard landing pages that GoDaddy has been using for quite some time.

The landing page that Logan shared shares the new look of GoDaddy’s search pages. The teal green background and the cartoon graphic are very similar to the page a person would encounter when searching for a domain name on GoDaddy’s website. You will notice the prominent GoDaddy logo at the top and a small “Powered by Afternic” at the bottom of the landing page.

What has not changed much is the call to actions on the landing page. GoDaddy continued to encourage visitors to call a domain broker or provide their contact information so a broker can get in touch.

I will reach out to GoDaddy to see if this is a test or if these landing pages are rolling out across the board.

  1. i am looking forward to godaddy providing instant chat response-ability to inquierers – to help answer any questions – who may be unfamiliar with ‘godaddy auction’ reference, and lnks to gdauctions – which are not friendly to non domainers. Even starting with a ‘chatbot’ would be helpful – like so many other sites have on the web now.

    • On the flip side, my bet is the chat functionality would be overwhelmed by confused visitors who were expecting something else when they directly navigated to the landing page.

  2. Many chatbots initial windows now provide initial faq answers and then solicit further query, which godaddy’s ai maven’s could readily program to focus queries to 7×24 responsive live agents – what many consumer facing companies are doing now

  3. I’ve been with GoDaddy’s parked pages forever, so I think any change in their interface would be an improvement. Has anyone had enough experience selling with GD and to compare what you think is effective (more frequent sales or inquiries from buyers) and which one is more economical for the BUYER. I think GD charges the buyer the commission amount — I might have this wrong? And of course, my next question is which makes more profit as a percentage for the SELLER? Any guidance is appreciated, since I’m now on both.
