    Hi @sasika,

     

    Welcome to the Community!

    Any domain that you list for sale must be no closer than 90 days to expiration when listed for auction. You are not able to list expired domains for auction as they no longer belong to you until you have paid for their renewal.

     

    When a domain name's registration expires, it goes back to the registry. Before valuable domain names expire and go back to their registry, registrars (like GoDaddy) will try to sell the domain name through an auction (the "expired domain auction" you reference). This gives interested buyers the opportunity to bid for the domain name before it goes back to the registry and is available for normal registration.
