April 23, 2010 – It was announced several months ago the site GoDrops.com was going to get an overhaul. The construction work is complete and GoDrops.com is ready for its re-release. A partnership formed between Jason Cupp of GoDrops.com and Patrick Ruddell of ChefPatrick.com has come together to create a new and improved version of the site.
In 1998, frustrated with his inability to land any generic .com’s, Jason created a script that helped him track names that were dropping, giving him a list to choose from. At some point he decided to publish this list, which is where the idea for GoDrops.com came from. He successfully ran the site since, but in late 2009 realized it needed help monetizing and marketing. This is when he partnered up with Chef Patrick who has shared some of his creative ideas and input, redeveloping what is the all new GoDrops.com.
Patrick offered a little insight saying, “Jason created something really solid with GoDrops. This is a great service that domainers can use to get an edge, giving them an opportunity to snag some great names that might not have been available to them otherwise.”
One of the major changes with the re-release is a membership program. It costs $19.97 per month to join giving its members daily access to the hand selected pending delete domain names list. In addition, paid members have access to domain stats, such as value, age, CPC, searches and frequency. Paying members will have access to drop data 24 hours in advance and 5 days in arrears. Previously members had to come to the site between 2-3pm EST only in order to have access to any drop lists during the live chat session. There will also be a members only forum available for questions, comments and conversations.
With the re-launch came more extensions. There will be nine extensions available to start – .com, .net, .org, .us, .info, .biz, .me, .tv and .ca. More extensions will be added monthly.
A great feature that remains is the live chat session. This is the only site offering this feature in conjunction with the release of the drop list live. It adds a fun social aspect to the service.
There is still a free service available for non-paying members. Those individuals will continue to have access to only the .com and .net lists without the extra benefits the paid members get and only as the drop is happening. The live drop and chat session runs from 2pm EST to 3pm EST.
The GoDrops team would like to send out a BIG thank you to Name.com for providing all the raw drop data and discounts for GoDrops members and also Estibot.com for providing the statistical data.
