I was in an expired auction at Godaddy for expireddomains.com - the actual domain. The name was upto just over $3k with about 8 days to go - I've just been checking and the name has gone from my bidding and watching lists - checking on domaintools to see if it had been renewed, it doesn't appear so, but there is the usual link from there to the auction page which shows this; "We're sorry, but the domain name you are looking for is no longer available through auction." This usually shows if the name has been renewed or the auction finished. Looks like Godaddy are saving this for themselves instead of letting the auction run...time to look through the TOS methinks. Their whole auctioning of expired but not deleted domains seems legally dubious anyway - how can you auction off something you don't own?
