    I'm having trouble trying to figure out how to buy a closeout on godaddy.
    Apparently you're able to just buy them after the auction ends? I ended up calling a customer service rep at godaddy and the girl had no idea what she was talking about, couldn't even find the URL after i spelled it out clearly 3 times.

    Then she ended up finding it and told me to call back at 7 am when auctions department is open.

    Do I need to wait until the domain becomes available to purchase for the public as a free domain?

    Can I buy close outs immediately somehow? I was getting an error when trying to purchase it.
    If anyone can let me know, would be appreciated.

    Do you have a GoDaddy auction membership? It costs something like $5/yr.

    If you do have, you can buy the closeout domains immediately. Just hit the "buy now" and click on the "go to the cart" button. Fill in your data, pay and voilá, some days later the domain is in your account.

    If the it's closed you can't buy of course. Anyway, what kind of error did you get?

    Only way to do that is if the domain has a "Buy Now" option. you can do this using:
    Advanced Search
    > Closeout Domains > [Check]
    > Attributes > Buy Now > [Check]

    Providing you have a valid GoDaddy auctions account, you should be able to buy a Closeout domain. Only times I've seen errors is when there the Account's payment info. is incomplete.

    May help if you describe what error message you saw.

    another question is; I've been looking up auctions on (expired domains dot net) via PR and BL's etc, then running it through mozrank to check the quality of the backlinks etc.

    So do I have to find available sites on godaddy now through the advanced search?
    It doesn't give me the data that I want, and I'd prefer not to go through every single domain to find their PR, BL, etc.

    the error said, 'domain is closed, purchase closed domain'

    Something along those lines, but there was no button to purchase it.

    At moonsy is also free godaddy auctions list with all important seo factors, but there no closeouts, just present auctions.

    Can´t post link, but try the website "Dropday" ... it might have what you need. Closeouts, PR and links.
