    I am not able to buy domains on Godaddy without getting into a bidding war. Domain starts off at $12 and and end up passing $100 mark. At that point, I just give up.

    How are you guys winning Godaddy domain auctions? Is it impossible to buy quality domain names for a low price? By low price, I am talking about $40-$70.

    People usually start bidding near the end of the auction. I guess it's to avoid any higher costs than necessary while also keeping the domain low profile. All the bidders that are interested are just waiting patiently while it gives you the impression that nobody needs it.

    From personal experience, I've had a situation where I bidded $12 for a good domain in the last 5 minutes of its auction, only to see it go up to $300 when I checked back.

    You're basically picking domains that have value. That's why. I'm sure you can find a lot of (horrible) domains that you can snatch for just $12.

    I've had situations where I got very good domains for just $12 but I call that luck mixed with patience. Just keep looking through Godaddy's auction list and eventually you'll get it.

    most of the people are active at the time domain auction end therefore it becomes difficult to purchase domain. you can try some other platform too to purchase domains or try for the BIN auction.

    And then to only see that the domains that you won did not even get indexed. It has happened with me, two domains won in auctions just did not get indexed for 3 months and hand to junk it. So expired domains and the scrapers give you better results.
