What happens after an auction ends?

Domains must be transferred to the buyer's account after a domain sale is completed through GoDaddy Auctions®. The method to move the domain name and who initiates the move depends on how the domain was purchased and if the seller and buyer accounts are registered with GoDaddy.

As a buyer, now that you’ve won your domain, it's time to purchase it and move it into your account. 

Purchasing your domain

You'll need to make a payment before getting the domain moved to your account. 

  1. Sign in to your GoDaddy Auctions® account. (Need help signing in? Find your username or password.)
  2. Select Bidding List, then Won.
    • For a single domain, select Pay for this domain, then continue through the checkout process.
    • For multiple wins, select the box next to each won domain, then select Purchase all.

Domain delivery time frame

After you’ve paid for your domain, the estimated delivery date varies depending on the listing type. 

  • Offer/Counter-offer or Buy now

    Domains purchased via Offer/Counter-offer or Buy Now listing type should be delivered within 5 to 20 days after the payment is delivered.
