You should not be downloading this fake GoDaddy app from Google Play Store

Fake GoDaddy app

One of the best websites for buying and selling websites, GoDaddy, has an application on neither the Google Play Store nor the Apple App Store. First of all, this is very surprising and users are forced to use their websites on mobile as well which is an unpleasant experience. However, you are forced to do it as you have no option.

To be honest, no other big domain companies also have an application for mobile users. Therefore, each and every company should be called out and not just GoDaddy. Keeping that aside, we now have a public service announcement to make. The announcement is also a warning that you should not download the GoDaddy app which is available for Android on the Google Play Store.

The reason for this warning is because the app is totally fake as it has not been developed by GoDaddy. Rather, the app has been developed by a company in India. Not only that, but the GoDaddy app also does not have any functionality too. It is just a web clone of the GoDaddy app disguised in the form of an Android app.

Once you open the application, you will see that it just opens the website inside the app same as your browser. Also, the reason you should not use this app is because you have to enter your credentials of GoDaddy inside the application. And you never know if the app developers are recording the credentials. This way, your account as well as the data inside the account can be stolen.

Also, the application shows a persistent ad on the bottom corner too which is how the developers are making money from this app. At the moment, there are 10,000 downloads for this app which means that those users have already been targeted. Nevertheless, this is a reminder that you should not download the app and fall in this trap.

Domain Market

Mike Mann who is known to be a big domain investor as well as a sharp mind in the industry has reported sales of some premium domains for a lot of money. Mike Mann’s report reveals that he sold a total of 9 domains last month. The total amount that was paid by different buyers for these 9 domains was $179,828. It is reported that the average domain sales price was $19,981.

Before getting to know which were these domain names and what they were sold for, we should have a look at who MikeMann is. Basically, MikeMann is the owner of a website called DomainMarket.com which is famous for offering premium domains to the tune of more than 350,000. Now, it does not mean that MikeMann reports every domain sale that DomainMarket makes. Instead, Mike reports what he wants to report and hides others.

Also, it is known that he purchases and sells hundreds of domains every month through market research and other factors. Yet, he only discloses details about the ones that get the highest price for obvious reasons. One more thing to consider here is that Mike Mann needs to sell more than $2.5 million worth of domains so that he can break even in terms of returns on investment.

Talking about the 9 domains that he has reported for May 2019, the highest sale out of those domains has been for Dermacor.com which has collected $29,888 on its own which was purchased for just $7 from Purch in 2009. Other domains include aitko.com, rebelrealestate.com, avoro.com, sundayservice.com, jazzyou.com, havuzlu.com, fancyfarmer.com and pandacloud.com.

Now, one thing that you would have noticed here is that all the domains are having .com TLD which shows that this TLD has the most value which is even more than .net domains. It should also be noted that DomainMarket.com is reporting its monthly reports since 2016.
