Winning Expiring Domain Name Auctions

If you win an expiring domain name in GoDaddy Auctions®, you must make payment. In addition to the auction price, you will need to pay the renewal fee for the domain name. For more information, see Purchasing Domain Names You Won.

After you make payment, we move the domain name to your account within two weeks of the auction's end. We cannot move it sooner because we are obligated to hold it until the current registrant's redemption period ends. If the current registrant renews the domain name during the redemption period, we refund your purchase.

To view the scheduled transfer date, log in to your Auctions account. From the Bidding List menu, select Won. The scheduled transfer date displays in the Status column.
