    Hey guys,

    I just bought an expired domain from GoDaddy Buy Now auction. They charged me $5 for domain, $15 for .com renewal and $8 for private registration. I received an email with order confirmation however when I go to my dashboard in GoDaddy I see 0 domains. Is it normal? I don't see any clarification anywhere in GoDaddy.

    I never worked with GoDaddy and their auctions before. Domain was listed as "Buy Now". How long should I wait?

    Thanks a ton!

    When I buy domains from godaddy auction I have to wait a week before the domain is pushed through to me, so just wait and check your emails.

    Like user above me said. Godaddy auctioned domains are released to you account after 7 days. In that 7 days, previous owner still has ability to renew his domain at 80$ fee. It happens rarely but it does.

    Next time, use coupons, you paid full price :)

    and to transfer the domain after u purchased u have to wait 3 months til u be able to transferred from ur GD account to somewhere else
    and yeah use coupons bro could safe 50% at lease

    P.S. usually if u was able to find good domain in "buy now" sections means something weird with it ether spammed or penalized
    I been monitoring fresh dumps of them new domains on auctions in buy now section and they have plenty proxy bots that's buying them right away if domain good literally wouldn't sit there more then 5-10min. after published that's if u buying domain with good seo metrics for building back links with it in future

    Oh yes, I felt it was kind of expensive. I never used them before but this one appears as real PR 4 with live links on the web. It was a Tumblr site and there is like 80 Tumblr blogs linking to it because they reblogged a picture that was there. It doesn't appear penalized as it's indexed by Google. In terms of DA/PA there is nothing though. The links are relevant to what I am going to do with the domain, in the same niche. I was surprised to see this actually, so I figured at $5 I don't have much to lose. Then $5 became $28 but that's ok. I will do better next time.

    Thanks for your tips, I will wait for a few days before I start bugging them about it :cool:

    Takes atleast a week to get into your account. You get confirmation mail about that.

    yeah, the auctions with them are not instant. Meaning, they don't drop into your account right away when purchasing at auction.
