List my domain on GoDaddy Auctions®

Listing your domain on GoDaddy Auctions® gives you the option to purchase additional upgrades like featuring your domain on the GoDaddy Auctions® home page. You can go back and edit your listing if you need to make changes. Domains expiring within the next 90 days, inactive domain names, and international domains can’t be listed.
