Question about godaddy auction?

Discussion in 'Domain Names' started by imc042, Nov 13, 2012.

    There is a domain name that I like that's due to expire in January 2013. It is listed in GoDaddy auctions.

    I am just wondering does it have to go to auction?

    If the owner agrees to sell the domain to me before the end of the auction can the domain be transferred to me and I renew it and cancel the auction?

    The reason it is listed in auctions is because the domain owner has put it up there. So you wont be able to simply acquire the domain name from the current owner without going through the bidding process first.

    Hi you can have the domain if the auction doesn't receive a single bid.

    In this case domain owner can cancel its auction and then you can get it transfer to your a/c

    The owner might have already let it drop or expire and no longer has any control over it.Look them up on WHOIS and send an email; you never know what you might find.

    If the domain is in auction then you have to go through it, you can't get it by contacting the owner of domain name.

    It's like the others have said..You're gonna have to wait for the auction to end with no bids..or bid on it while it's in auction if you want it.

    Pray you don't get a heavy bidder. A heavy bidder is a heavy hitter. Do research and get the background check on what domains would sell good for you.

    What's the best place to see available domains..?
