What does it mean when a domain is in "Auction Lock" status?


When a domain won in our Expired Domain Auctions is added to the winning bidder's account, the domain is put in "Auction Lock" status for about 15 days.

While in this status, the domain cannot be unlocked, transferred to a different registrar, or moved into another Dynadot account. However, you can set the name servers for the domain. The Whois information will still show the registrant as "Pending Renewal or Deletion."

At the end of the 15 days, the "Auction Lock" status will automatically be removed.

NOTE:

  • This is different than the "Buy Lock" that is placed on Marketplace domains.
  • Inventory from our registrar partners may have a 60 day hold depending on registry transfer requirements. Dynadot is unable to override such restrictions.
