I just recently got an email from my Domain provider, Godaddy, letting me know that my “auctions” membership would be auto-renewing soon at a cost of $9.99 per year. I’m not sure how I got an auctions account to begin with – maybe from bidding on/buying an expiring domain? Anyway, the Godaddy Auctions account is not something I ever use, so I logged in to my Godaddy account and started looking for a way to disable the auto-renew option for this account.
15 minutes later, I still hadn’t found a way to do it. If anyone from Godaddy is reading this – simplify your user interface pretty please.
I did eventually find a way to do it, so I figured I would share it here for anyone else who might stumble upon this site looking for a way to do stop Godaddy Auctions from auto-renewing…
- Once logged in, go to My Account, and in the left sidebar click on the “Payments & Renewing Items” link under “MY RENEWALS & UPGRADES”.
- You should be presented with a list of all of the renewing items in your account, along with the date that they will renew on. Select “Go Daddy Auctions – Membership w/DomainAlert. Pro Monitoring” and then click the ”Cancel Item” button.
- In the right sidebar, you’ll be presented with the option to cancel it now, or cancel it at expiration. I chose to “Cancel at Expiration Date”.
