    @pathankp Hi there, you'll need to purchase an auction membership account, I believe this are $4.99/year. You can find the instructions on how to do so here: https://www.godaddy.com/help/purchasing-a-godaddy-auctions-membership-1504

    Hello,

    I received an email from GoDaddy, it looked like there is more than two who is backorder the same domain. Where can i put a bid on it? In the email, GoDaddy did not share any email where i can put my bid.
