    Assistance needed with Godaddy's new registration path

    Hi All,

    For several years I was able to direct buyers to my domain listings at Godaddy directly from my site. It seems that the domain registration path for Godaddy has changed so it no longer works.

    You can see an example here:

    When a buyer would click the Godaddy button they would be directed to the Godaddy registration path page which would display my premium listing or auction listing.

    Now it just displays an error message when a buyer clicks the banner.

    The code I used before with my wordpress site was: 



    <td><b>Buy directly through Godaddy (added fees)</b></td>
                            <form action="" method="get" class="pull-left">
                                <input type="hidden" name="domainToCheck" value="<?php the_title(); ?>" />
                                <button type="submit" class="btn btn-buy btn-buy-gd">Buy directly through GoDaddy</button>
                            <div class="payment-icons">
                                <img src="<?php echo get_template_directory_uri(); ?>/images/godaddy-payments.png" width="392">



    It appears Godaddy's new registration search path is

    Any help is appreciated.

    Still looking for assistance with this if anyone has any ideas.



    Hey @justingodfrey. I ran this by our website team and all I've been able to gather so far is yes, we did retire that feature. I will circle back with that team to see if I can find out more. You may need to try using the the domains API to pull information, though I'm not sure if that is possible or how you would do it. You can reach out to if you have questions though.

    @justingodfrey Would something like this do the trick?


    <a href="<?php the_title(); ?>" class="btn btn-buy btn-buy-gd">Buy directly through GoDaddy</a>
