I’ve grown to appreciate GoDaddy’s Domain Manager improvements over the years.
Some improvements have gotten better throughout the years, while others crashed, burned, and were likely dead on arrival.
However, I find myself missing GoDaddy’s old user experience for the Domain Manager.
While GoDaddy’s new Domain Manager user experience is a more sleek, modern experience, I find myself strongly missing the information I’ve grown accustom to viewing:
- Afternic Listing
- CashParking Amount
- CashParking Status
Before the newly released Domain Manager view, I frequently used the aforementioned attributes on a weekly basis to determine which domains were:
- Most recently transferred to my account
- Forwarding (visible in new view)
- Parked via CashParking and associated parking revenue
- Listed via Afternic
With the old Domain Manager view no longer available, I’ll have to figure out an efficient method to three out of the four aforementioned bullets.
The good news about the newly released Domain Manager experience is having access to view the Estimated Value for each domain.
While this value is not the “end all, be all” source of truth for a given domains value, it is beneficial if you ever pondered how GoDaddy values your given domain portfolio based on historical domain sales.
I also like the addition of the “Saved Searches” and “Expiration” filters just above the grid displaying tabular data for domains as well as the filter options.
It’ll take some time to adjust to this new view, but I’m certain it’ll grow on me as time progresses.
