    Check the domain name's whois detaills which would in most cases get you the contact details of the admin for the domain.

    Short of WHOIS (assuming they didn't use a private registration), there's not any way I'm aware of to reach the seller. You might call GoDaddy and ask them as well.

    I know that if you go to "Find a Domain" and search, it will show that it's taken but there will be a small text link to the right of the message that says learn more. If you click it a window will pop up and you can either choose to back order or have godaddy contact the owner on your behalf to assist in a direct purchase.

    The other option is to go to the godaddy whois and search the domain. If it's not set to privacy, you might get lucky and see a valid contact email for the owner and you can try emailing him/her or check the owner details and search the name or company name to see if you can score a phone number, website, etc.

    Hope this helps.

    Godaddy is usually pretty good about helping you acquire it if the whois route doesnt work.
