GoDaddy.com listed for sale at Domain Name Sales!


About a month ago, we pointed out a glitch that allows any domain to appear to be listed for sale at BuyDomains.

Back then, we also contended that the Domain Name Sales marketplace is immune from such URL trickery, so how is it possible that GoDaddy.com appears to be for sale there?

It all started when we ran a WHOIS query for GoDaddy.com at DomainTools, as seen below:


As you can see, the green icon clearly shows that GoDaddy.com is for sale, unlike the previous incident with TheDomains.com, which had nothing of this sort displayed at DomainTools.

Once you click on that green icon, you are taken to the usual Domain Name Sales ‘for sale’ lander, as seen below:


The for sale form is also displayed – as of this moment – via the direct URL http://domainnamesales.com/domain/godaddy.com

This means, that the glitch appears to be at Domain Name Sales, or at both Domain Name Sales and DomainTools.

Either way, there is no way that GoDaddy – the largest domain registrar in the world – could be for sale! ๐Ÿ˜€

    UPDATE: Domain Name Sales has removed the listing of GoDaddy.com from their marketplace.

    As of now, the glitch remains at DomainTools.com.

    To be fair to DNS, Godaddy.com “may” be for sale, if the price is north of 2 billion.

    Talking about mistakes, yesterday, reading DNJournal Sales Report, under Additional Go Daddy/Afternic .com Sales Between $2,000 – $5,500, I saw Casino.com being sold for 5,000$ …lol, soooo cheap …
    Obviously it was a typo, so I informed Ron Jackson, who promptly fixed it.
    The sold domain is actually casino.se.com ๐Ÿ˜‰
    It happens sometimes ๐Ÿ˜€
