Responding to Offers when Selling Domain Names

When you receive an offer for a domain name you're selling on GoDaddy Auctions®, you can either accept it, decline it, provide a counter offer, or push the listing to auction using the buyer's initial offer as an opening bid. Buyers can submit an offer for a domain name, even if it's below the asking price.

You must respond to counter offers within seven days, while they are binding. If you accept an offer within seven days, the transaction must be completed.

If you push the listing to auction, we convert it to a 7-Day Public Auction using the buyer's initial offer as an opening bid. For more information, see What is GoDaddy Auctions®?
