Winning expiring domain Auctions
If you win an expiring domain name in GoDaddy Auctions®, you must make payment within approximately 48 hours of the auction closing. Failure to purchase the domain in a timely manner may result in loss of the domain and suspension of your auctions membership. In addition to the auction price, you will need to pay the renewal fee for the domain name. For more information, see Purchasing Domain Names You Won.
After you make payment, we move the domain name to your account within two weeks of the auction's end. We cannot move it sooner because we are obligated to hold it until the current registrant's redemption period ends. If the current registrant renews the domain name during the redemption period, we refund your purchase.
To view the scheduled transfer date, log in to your Auctions account. From the Bidding List menu, select Won. The scheduled transfer date displays in the Status column.
