Unsuccessful with the Tucows deal but in return, GoDaddy will receive many expired domain names from Host Europe Group.
With $1.79 billion, GoDaddy owns four domain registrars under the management of Host Europe Group: 123-Reg.co.uk, Heart Internet, Domain Factory and HostEurope.com.
As such expired domain names are registered in these four providers, which of course will become expired domain names in GoDaddy and will be put to auction, handled on the GoDaddy Auctions.
One of the benefits of buying expired domain names on GoDaddy is that all of those domains will be redirected to your GoDaddy account rather than being managed by other providers.
From now on, when the domain name expires, please note the four names above to go to the GoDaddy Auction bid.
