Hi @Bobfossil. Thanks for posting. I'm guessing that when you say GoDaddy took the .com version, you mean that it appears to be registered with us. If the domain has WHOIS information showing Domains By Proxy, that is an indication that it is a GoDaddy customer who has purchased privacy. GoDaddy as a company does not register other versions of domains that customers register. We usually suggest that customers do so when they're going through the registration process. I'd suggest double-checking what the registration date for the .com was. My guess would be that the .com domain was already registered when you got the .co.uk. Feel free to share the domain if you'd like someone to take a closer look.
