Can this much good news fit into one blog post? I’ll try.
We launched Domainchy, and you can follow Domainchy on Twitter, Facebook and Google+. So what’s Domainchy about and who is it for? Domainchy is a white label iPhone app that hosting companies can integrate in their billing/ticket system. If you are a hosting company you probably know what that means, but just for the sake of content marketing or visitors that don’t understand, let me explain or skip the next paragraph.
People and companies that use hosting services often have smart phones with them. We are particularly interested in +200 million iPhone users. And often their website or email aren’t working when they are not in the office. Also, they get this wild ideas when they are in the pub, cafe bar, supermarket. What they want then is to open a support ticket, check domain availability, order hosting, or just check their profile and unpaid invoices. When you are in a hurry, and mobile, it’s difficult to use a full blown website. Especially if you just want to do a simple task such as opening a ticket or ordering a domain name. We even asked some of our clients (while we were a hosting company), and a lot of them said they would like to use such an app if it existed.
Since we are really passionate about the hosting industry, and the web we wanted to make their job easier. Domainchy helps hosting companies reach their customers and prospective clients while they are on the GO. It also helps them increase branding as their clients will perceive them as innovative (introducing something that’s unique and high tech) with great customer care. Why customer care? Well Domainchy helps hosting users do what they love? Checking if a domain name is available, and providing information about the ones that are not. Where does that information come from? Well, none other than WhoAPI! But Domainchy isn’t just fun, it helps users reach their hosters faster than ever before. So, if you are paying hosting service to someone, tell your hoster you would like to use Domainchy. And if you are a hosters, ask yourself, wouldn’t you like to use an app like this?
At the same week we received news that our application to pitch at GOAP event in Zagreb was approved. Which means that we will pitch in front of around 300 people including investors, media, startups and industry experts. Since Saša Cvetojević (angel investor from Croatia) publicly said in local newspapers that pitches have to be perfect, there’s no real pressure on startups and presenters
It’s been a year since my last pitch. Last September and October were pretty epic with the HackFwd and Seedcamp. It seems that part of the year is ideal for WhoAPI to pitch. We hope to see you there.
