Godaddy Extends Lowered Commission on Premium Listings Through September

by Adam Strong in Categories: Domain Aftermarket

At the beginning of August, Goddaddy lowered it’s Premium Listings from 30% commission to 20%. ┬áThe company informed DNN today that they will be extending this offer through to the end of September.

Godaddy’s Premium Listings are a popular way for some domain name investors to sell their “fixed price” inventory of domains through One of the biggest benefits of Premium Listings is that domains listed with the service show up for sale when a user searches from the Godaddy home page.

Godaddy users who currently have their names listed as Premium Listings should verify that their names are listed at this reduced rate by logging in to the Godaddy control panel and navigating to the Premium Listings area. DNW details a way to do a bulk change to your listings in order to take advantage of this promotion.

Or you could just list your domains with Afternic (with BIN price) and the domains will be listed on GD with a 20% commission all the time :)

I believe GoDaddy Premium Listings get additional exposure over GoDaddy Auctions listings, which are what Afternic listings put on GoDaddy as far as I’m aware.

Jamie and Steve, thanks for the comments. I confirmed with Godaddy that Afternic listings are displayed on GD Auctions but not on the available check path.

The only domains displayed on the available check are premium listings and GD Auctions from GD customer, not 3rd parties.

Thanks for the follow up Adam. It must have been the GoDaddy Premium listing showing up when we were chatting on the phone then when I gave you that example. I guess I will have to add them again :) Just wish GoDaddy would display the domains “better” and more clear.
