Web developers get new tools to manage client web sites

As it continues to ramp up its tools to support small and medium-sized businesses, GoDaddy has launched a program to help web designers and developers manage client projects.

Dubbed GoDaddy Pro, the program and related products include features, programs and technical support tailored to the needs of web developers that are spending more and more of their time managing clients and their sites.  It helps them manage domains, hosting, site builders, email, SEO and SSL certificates and other products from quote and design to build and manage. GoDaddy Pro also lets developers send clients shopping carts pre-loaded with the products they need, and allows them to manage client products from a dashboard with automatic site monitors and web site performance and uptime alerts.

“Many Canadian small businesses rely on web designers and developers to build a reputable, professional presence for them online,” said Jill Schoolenberg, vice-president of GoDaddy Canada, in a statement. “With GoDaddy Pro, we are providing web experts the tools they need to get customers online, grow their online presence and conduct business around the world, 24/7. From purchasing power and ease, to client dashboard management and security, GoDaddy Pro helps web professionals keep their customers happy.”

The launch of GoDaddy Pro follows the company’s acquisition earlier this month of Elto (formerly Tweaky), a San Francisco-based company that helps non-technical small business owners connect with qualified developers that can build their web sites and products. Web developers in the community are qualified and vetted by Elto.

“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 Ant Built, in a statement. “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 client’s accounts.”
