Auctions should start popping up later this week.
GoDaddy acquired domain name registrar Uniregistry this year, so it was only a matter of time before Uniregistry expired domains would transition to GoDaddy Auctions.
That should start happening sometime this week, Domain Name Wire has confirmed.
Previously, Uniregistry expired domain names were auctioned at Dynadot.
Dynadot auctions expiring domains that are currently registered at its registrar but, like most expired domain marketplaces, also has agreements with other registrars to auction their domains. Dynadot’s other notable expiry stream partner is PorkBun.
Auctions at Dynadot are not always as competitive as at GoDaddy, so there are sometimes opportunities to get domains that don’t attract as many bidders.
Better everything stays at home.

No surprise there.
I miss the good old days when you could get a true wholesale price at GoDaddy expired auctions, less than $100. Back when domainers were more interested in domains on NameJet and crypto investors didn’t invest in domains yet. Back when you could outbid Huge Domains at $100.
The good ole days!
Great, huge domains can game this also, until godaddy evens the playing field, they should stop giving a few parties massive advantages.
Otherwise uni is mainly investor portfolios of advanced users, many of those names have already gone to epik, namesilo, namecheap, and dynadot since the sale, they continue to bleed portfolio names
