No. Pre-registering a gTLD reserves your place in our queue for that domain. The instant the registration phase opens, we’ll submit your registration electronically using our industry-leading technology to give you an edge.
If we can’t get the name for you, we’ll refund your registration cost. Application fees collected during the Priority Pre-Registration or Trademark phases are non-refundable. If GoDaddy secures the name and more than one person or company has pre-registered it, all parties will be invited to a private auction to decide who gets it.
