Premium Tier .CO and .Club Names Can be Listed on GoDaddy Auctions

GoDaddy’s Joe Styler shared some news on Twitter this evening that will likely be of interest to domain investors who own premium tier .CO and .Club domain names.

Premium tier .CO and .Club domain names, which is a registry-designation, can now be listed via GoDaddy Auctions right away. They will also be permitted to be listed on Afternic at some point this month, so domain names listed this way will show up in the search channel at GoDaddy.

Just over a year ago, GoDaddy announced that it acquired Neustar, which is now part of GoDaddy Registry. Neustar operates the .CO Registry. In April of this year, GoDaddy announced it would acquire the .Club registry. I do not know if these acquisitions have something to do with the ability to list premium tier domain names on GoDaddy Auctions and GoDaddy.

  1. No thanks Godaddy.
    I have been trying to list my LLL .co names for 3 years with you through Afternic ever-since “premium listings” were dissolved and you did not do anything about it.
    Little to late. Thanks but no thanks.
    If my Afternic listings will show on GD platform fine but I’m not going to re-list my domains now on the auction platform just because.

    Efty will do just fine.

  2. .CO domains are already showing up in GoDaddy if I’ve added via Afternic and showing up additionally at GoDaddy Auctions won’t bring much attention because most of the time investors are searching out for the deals. So it’s not of any use unless I’ve missed anything here…

    Also the problem with GoDaddy/Afternic is that the .CO domains listed above 100K doesn’t show in GoDaddy search unlike the .com extension which shows in GoDaddy search so they must’ve restricted .CO domains not to be displayed in GoDaddy search for the amount over 100K.

    For example, if you search Vodka.CO, it will show the BIN of 100K but Business.CO, Finance.CO and News.CO all are not showing which has the price tag of over 100K.

    This is killing the sales of over 100K amount of .CO domains and possibly for other non .com extensions.

    • Yes you are missing something here. It has nothing to do with your list price, it is about domain status by the registry. If your domain is a “premium” it wouldn’t appear.
