How do I know new domain owner

Recently I forgot renewing my domain and it was backordered on Godaddy Auction.


Whether it is possible to know new admin email through Godaddy system?

In WHOIS admin email is hidden with private protection.

Hi @laslogwino,


This is surely a tough one if the registrant has used a private registration.  I would at least call GoDaddy and see if the domain is still within the time frame where you can regain registration control.  It MAY be possible that way, but if the time has been too long you may end up having to pay the auction rate.  The key variable is how long the domain name has been expired.


Wish I had a better suggestion!
