    @nickfourth I'm not aware of any domain extension that costs $69.95, you may have purchased the domain buy service which simply tries to put you in touch with the owner. Does this sound familiar?

    I did purchase the domain buy service. I gave GoDaddy a price range to get the domain name but never heard back as to the company/person who owns it or the reaction to the request to buy.

    @nickfourth Correct, the owner of the domain name has the option to accept/counter or just ignore the offer. Maybe you'll want to try increasing your offer?

    Full story. The company in Amsterdam that GoDaddy thinks owns the domain name actually sold its assets to an American company a couple of years ago. So, they obviously would not respond. I'm surprised GoDaddy didn't pick this up...
