    According to Godaddy:

    What happens to domains registered before May 2, 2005?

    registrations are renewed annually, so if a domain name was originally registered in 2004 and continually renewed then it will have been registered for 17 years. In other words renewal = registration. 2005 is when we launched TDNAM, our original auction house so I would assume that language was added to let people know what happens to domains after expiration.

    So if someone first registered their domain with Godaddy in 2004 and continuously renewed it on Godaddy, the name would not be listed on auctions?

    A renewal is a registration, so if it was registered in 2004 and renewed, then it was also registered in 2005/2006/.../2020 etc. If it is allowed to expire then it would go to GD Auctions because it was registered in 2020
