    Hey guys any advice on how to avoid the 60 days lock that Godaddy places when you win auctions.

    I am having trouble with listing it on Afternic because of that.


    Any suggestion or tips in this regard would be highly appreciated.

    According to ICANN rules 60 day lock only applies in the following (2) situations -

    1.) The domain was registered in the last 60 days.
    2.) The domain was transferred to a new registrar in the last 60 days.​


    This 60 day lock policy on change of name sucks and is against the Ican rules, any way to bypass that or to shorten the period? I only want to list them on the afternic , not even want to change the registrar.

    Guys do you really wait 60 days just cause of this draconian policy of Godaddy. Cant it be made into a class action lawsuite ?

    Sorry, your info is incomplete. Late last year, ICANN introduced a 60 day transfer lock for material changes to whois information as well. Material information in this context is Name, Company Name, Email (and a couple of other pieces of information). In the case of auction purchases, whois info changes which then applies the lock. Since this change takes place behind the scenes, you do not have the opportunity to opt out of the lock either.

    Also, please do not forget, other registrars auction their domains through GD auctions too. In that case, there IS a registrar change
