    I bought a domain seo-2-go.com earlier from Godaddy through Paypal.
    Payment went through OK and then I went to my Godaddy account to update the dns to point to my Hostgator account.

    In my account was no new domain so I left it for a while then went back, still nothing there. I got in touch with Godaddy and emails were exchanged and then eventually they got back saying.

    seo-2-go.com is registered at GoDaddy to Joseph Correia until 12/27/2012

    So the domain name should never have been listed.
    I have emailed them again asking for my money back and had no reply. So I have opened a Paypal dispute.

    Aghhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!

    Godaddy is the worst registrar ever. Go with Namecheap or Namesilo.com ( cheap prices ).

    I have never bought a domain from GoDaddy before, I have learned a lesson.

    Hmm Did not know they accept paypal.

    Did you buy a aged domain?

    If it was an expired domain, then it takes a few weeks before you get access to the domain.

    Transaction ID: 1EJ47027WM9375536 Dear ,

    You sent a payment of £ GBP to Go Daddy Europe Limited (billing@godaddy.com)

    It may take a few moments for this transaction to appear in your account.

    Yes it was an expired domain, they do take Paypal.
