If you have been trying to log in to your GoDaddy account this afternoon (or morning) and saw an error message, it’s not just you. When I tried to log in to my GoDaddy Auctions account on my desktop this afternoon, I was shown this error message: “Yikes! Something went wrong. Please, try again later.”
Judging by the number of comments about this error on Twitter, it seems like it is a fairly widespread issue. I spoke with someone from GoDaddy, and he let me know the company knows about the issue and it is being worked on as we speak.
Evidently, some people are still able to access their GoDaddy Auctions accounts (perhaps using the GoDaddy Investor app or via API bidding) because I was just outbid on an auction a moment ago.
I do not have an ETA for when this issue will be fixed, but the company is aware of the problem and is working on it.
GoDaddy’s Support team on Twitter confirmed the issue, and their status page will be updated once it is fixed:
We're aware of the issue logging into accounts and have our technical teams working to correct it now. Check for updates on https://t.co/o4WBzdRsic

Update: It’s 3:06pm Eastern and I was able to log in to my account.
