Best time to end your auction at GoDaddy Auctions

First of all thanks to everyone who is coming to my blog regularly, commenting and subscribed to receive posts through email. I can clearly see the number of comments have gradually increased by time which motivates me to write and share my experience with you in many ways.


So today I am going to tell you the best time to start and finish off your auction at GoDaddy Auctions which will increase the chances of your domain auction to get sold.

Although I don’t sell many domains with GoDaddy Auctions because I prefer the endusers to contact me directly. In my opinion the best ending time for a 7 day public auction is Sunday evening (U.S time). Most of the buyers and sellers who frequently participate at GoDaddy Auctions are from U.S so I always try to target this occasion no matter it’s sleeping time in my country.

There is one more thing which you can try by tweaking ending time for your auction. Let’s say you are selling a domain which is more targeting for Chinese buyers for example so you must set the ending time according to China timing zone. Although there are buyers for from all over the world but these days we see many serious buyers are coming from China.

What are your opinions in this regard? Does any one agree or disagree with me?

    Exactly. But one must select the ending time according to the domain name. Because sometimes domains are not for everyone. They are for some specific country people like I mentioned above so this point should always be in our mind.

    And yeah, thanks for coming once again πŸ™‚

    Thanks for your post, as always great stuff.
    What’s your opinion, when is the best time and day of the week to send an email to the endusers?
    How do you normally do this, do you do a one page sites and direct to them; or sell it through marketplaces and direct the enduser to that; or for example – park a domain with a “For sale” sign that links to separate site that list all your domains? There are a lot of ways to do this but which one would you recommend to a newbie guy?

    P.S. Might be a good idea for you to put a separate post about this, that would be just superb.
