Verify my GoDaddy Auctions® domain

If you’ve listed a domain on GoDaddy Auctions® that isn’t registered to your GoDaddy account, your domain ownership will have to be verified. A great way to verify and speed up the process is to add a TXT record to your domain before listing the domain for sale.

  1. Sign in to your GoDaddy Auctions® account. (Need help signing in? Find your username or password.)
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Under Domain Ownership Verification, and then TXT Record, select Copy.
  4. select copy
  5. Go to your DNS provider (outside of GoDaddy) and add the TXT record to your DNS zone file:
    • Host/Name: Enter @ to add the record to your root domain. 
    • Points to/Value: The TXT record you copied from your GoDaddy Auctions® listing. Be sure to enter the entire TXT record.
    • TTL:1 hour
  6. Save the new TXT record to your zone file.

Most DNS updates take effect within an hour, but could take up to 48 hours to update globally.
