Domain Name Q&A – January 8th 2014

I started a new column called Domain Name Q&A. I will be using the search terms that visitors of my blog are using at Google and other search engines to find my website and are then passed on and parsed by google analytics. Some of the search terms are in the form of questions and some are not. I am going to take these search terms, treat them all as questions and attempt to answer 5 of them every day. Answers are going to be kept sort most of the time, some will only be a word or a link. Anyone what wants to ask anything domain related can do so by using the “contact us” form.

I also get a lot of inquiries for my domain names that most are at the Domain Name Sales platform that anyone interested can leave a comment. Sometimes people leave a strange or funny comment and that is what is going to be featured in the “Inquiry of the day” section.

Inquiry of the day:

Question 1:
when to pay for godaddy auction win

Answer 1:
You can pay immediately but because you have 3 days to pay it doesn’t hurt to wait a couple of days because the domain can get renewed and if you have paid then you will have to wait for a refund. You may want to read my article: “Your Auction Has Ended”: Will GoDaddy give me back my time and money?.

Answer 2:
You will not get the domain name and your Go Daddy auctions accounts will be disabled. You will not be able to bid of go daddy domains ever again.
