    I had two great ideas for domains names typed on godaddy search for availability and both was available I then gone back next day to register it was under premium domain for £10,000 each, so careful with godaddy they'll still what is good and live you with garbage. look elsewhere to check for your domains.

    I reckon same thing happened to me earlier. Try to go to namecheap or any other domain provider and search same domain there as chance is that its still available, but GoDaddy is just showing it with premium price as it detects that you search the domain day before

    GoDaddy has a habit of doing things like this - there very unreliable.

    GoDaddy is the McDonalds of the internet. The only thing they're good at is marketing

    It's almost as bad for your health too (stress wise)

    Maybe try clearing your cookies and search again? A good chance they just track you that way and try to jack the price up artificially like most sites do.

    It's not just domains... just about any site that offers something for sale will track your interest via cookies and try to increase the price if you are interested in it!
