SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., May 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- GoDaddy Inc. (NYSE: GDDY), the world's largest technology provider dedicated to small businesses, today announced GoDaddy Pro, a program and set of related products for web designers and developers to manage clients and clients' products. GoDaddy Pro was built from the ground up and delivers a new set of features, programs and technical support tailored to the needs of web designers and developers.
Web developers and designers spend a significant amount of time managing clients and their sites. The new GoDaddy Pro experience is designed to ease the processes designers and developers go through when building client sites and projects. GoDaddy Pro helps designers and developers manage products including domains, hosting, site builders, email, SEO and SSL certificates through the quote, design, build and manage process. This gives designers and developers the ability to directly send clients their shopping carts pre-loaded with the products they need. These designers and developers can also access and manage client products from a dashboard and set up automatic site monitors with website performance and uptime alerts—making it a one stop shop offering with all the tools they need.
"As a designer, I recommend all my clients use GoDaddy, but remembering their usernames and passwords is cumbersome," said Anthony Siringo, freelance designer and owner of Antbuilt.com. "This new service is an absolute must-have for any web designer/developer, as it makes it incredibly easy to handle all the logistics around clients' accounts."
GoDaddy Pro eases the processes web professionals go through when building client sites and managing client projects through features making it a one-stop shop offering:
- Account access - Permits access to clients' products without sharing passwords.
- Shared shopping carts - Users can send clients shopping carts loaded with recommended products, simplifying the checkout process.
- Site monitoring - Website performance and uptime alerts are automated.
- Client dashboard - View all clients and their products in one place.
- Pro support and training - A direct line to a team of highly trained technical agents and priority in the queue.
- Hosting products – GoDaddy Pro can be coupled with GoDaddy Pro features in hosting products including site staging, automated backups and security features.
"The monitoring feature in the dashboard is deceptively good," said Alex Sirota, founder and director of NewPath Consulting in Toronto, Canada. "It gives me peace of mind to know that I'll be automatically alerted if a client's website goes down. The best feature yet!"
"Small businesses often rely on web designers and developers to help them put their best foot forward online. As the world's largest technology provider dedicated to small businesses, we are committed to helping web professionals and their customers succeed online," said Jeff King, senior vice president and general manager of hosting at GoDaddy. "We listened closely to the community in building GoDaddy Pro. GoDaddy Pro has the tools designers and developers need to make clients happy, from purchasing power and ease, to client dashboard management and security."
The release of GoDaddy Pro is GoDaddy's second recent major move in support of the web professional community, following GoDaddy's acquisition of Elto earlier this month. Elto, a San Francisco-based company, helps small business owners connect with qualified developers to create and manage their websites.

With approximately 13 million customers worldwide and more than 59 million domain names under management, GoDaddy gives small business owners the tools to name their idea, build a beautiful online presence, attract customers and manage their business.
