Expired Domain - What Have I Done?

Hi Everyone,

I won't lie, I'm an absolute newbie when it comes to websites so I kindly ask for your patience with me.
I recently purchased a domain name for a website I'm planning.
Because I wanted to snatch it up I didn't really give it time or though. Now I can't find my domain name on the account settings.

The receipt says "Expiry Domain Name Purchase " and ".COM Domain Name Transfer - 1 Year ".

I know this is silly, but what exactly does this mean and when I can I renew the domain?
I'd like to get started asap.

Also will Im incur any more bills for this domain?

Many thanks and I appreciate your patience.

Re: Expired Domain - What Have I Done?



1) What is the domain

2) Did you have the domain and then it expired??

3) Did you transfer a domain from another registrar (Like network solutions or someone else)

Re: Expired Domain - What Have I Done?

Hi there @Yobo01! Thanks for being a part of the GoDaddy Community!


Based on what you posted, it sounds like you won a domain in our expired domains auction. When you purchase domains through an expired auction, it can take up to 7 days for the domain to be moved into your account. You can read more about the process in our winning expiring domains auction guide. Additionally, if you have any other questions or need help in regard to this domain, you can email

Hope this clears things up for you!
