Tool helps domain investors win domain auctions at lower prices.
Last week at TRAFFIC I had a chance to sit down with the team behind ProTrada, a (beta) system for buying domain names across multiple platforms.
The idea is simple: find the best domain names available on exchanges and expired domain sites and get them for the lowest possible price.
The basic features of ProTrada are nothing new; it’s how they’re all brought together that makes this a killer application. ProTrada has married domain searching with bid management. Big scale domainers have their own internal tools for doing this. ProTrada has brought it to the masses at $49/month.
There are a bunch of features, but at its simplest form this is how I think most users will benefit:
1. Use filters to find high quality expiring or auctioning domains.
2. Use bid management tools to place automated bids toward the end of the auction.
ProTrada is integrated with all of the major domain marketplaces including Go Daddy, Sedo, Afternic, SnapNames, NameJet, Pool and eBay.
In addition to helping domainers improve their business, ProTrada is preaching domains as an investment to the masses. This can only mean a good thing for the industry.
