Host Europe Group acquisition means more expired domains on GoDaddy Auctions.
Expired domains from four Host Europe Group registrars are now heading to GoDaddy Auctions following GoDaddy’s acquisition of the European hosting conglomerate earlier this year.
Expired domains from 123-Reg.co.uk, Heart Internet, Domain Factory and HostEurope.com will be available on the platform.
These registrars will add to GoDaddy’s existing inventory of its own expired domains as well as inventory from partner Endurance International Group.
The company also briefly offered Tucows’ expired domain inventory on the site but that deal was scuppered after Tucows acquired a 50% stake in expired domain rival NameJet.
One of the benefits of buying expired domains on GoDaddy is that all of the domains are put in your GoDaddy account rather than having to be managed at various registrars.
