Over the weekend I noticed a little triangle as an alert when using the GoDaddy appraisal tool.
The Estimated Value is based on an algorithm utilizing data GoDaddy has available to it to help estimate predicted sale price of domains. However, we do not make any guarantee or other promises to any results that may be obtained from your purchase or sale of any domain, and this is not intended as a solicitation or offer to buy any domain. It is your responsibility to independently assess and determine the value of any domain you may purchase or sell.
We shall not be liable for any losses you or anyone else suffers as a result of relying on the Estimated Value, which includes not being liable for any loss of profit, loss of bargain, loss of capital through over-payment or under-sale or for any indirect, special or consequential loss.
I imagine they wanted to give some better understanding to those outside the domain industry. Some might treat the amount as the most they should pay and others might buy a domain name and want to hold GoDaddy to the appraisal.
Of course domain investors know it does not mean much but GoDaddy has a lot of customers who are not domain investors.
