I found that Jamie’s posts were helpful and made it easy to find auctions at Go Daddy with at least one bidder. They were helpful to me because I find GoDaddy’s auction platform a bit frustrating to use. Since Jamie said he isn’t going to post the auctions with at least one bid any longer, I will share the way for you to find them on your own.
I am sure it’s frustrating as a bidder to see a name you are bidding on highlighted, but there is some gamesmanship with auctions, and I recommend waiting until the final possible moments to place your bid.
1) Log in to your GoDaddy account (you need a membership)
2) In the top drop down menu under “Domains” click “GoDaddy Auctions”
3) On the Auctions page, click “Expired Domains”
4) On the right menu, check the following:
– Predefined: “A TO Z Listings”
– # of Bids: “More than 0”
– Type: “Expiring Auctions”
5) Make sure the other options are unchecked, although you can pare it down to .com if you want or other extensions, # of days remaining…etc.
There may be other ways to get there, but this is the best way I’ve found.
Personally, I think GoDaddy’s auction platform needs a user interface overhaul. I haven’t used it much because I have found it frustrating to search. IMO, they would be well advised to take a group of willing customers at TRAFFIC and watch them use the site to see where frustrations arise (hint, hint).
