If it is not in the Great Domains auction, which is currently running, it most likely is not even in an auction.
I have plenty of domains for sale at Sedo and when I search the domain name at GoDaddy it says - "Congratulations! example.com is at auction through Go Daddy Auctions®" - when I know for a fact it is not in an auction.
I do not know why GoDaddy says it is in an auction as opposed to saying it is for sale.
|I came across a domain on Sedo for sale for $x,xxx. I just happened to type it into Godaddy to see what other extensions are available and I see it is up for auction and the current price is $xxx with no bids. |
The $x,xxx. is probably the asking price and the $xxx is the minimum amount accepted for an offer.

That sounds weird.
"$xxx is the minimum amount accepted for an offer."
So if I bid this amount and I am the only bidder and thus winning the "auction", I might not even get the domain?

Ok, it says "Sale Type" - Offer/Counter-Offer.
So it seems like you aren't bidding on the domain in a typical auction format, but rather making an offer, which the seller may or may not accept, or more likely counter with a higher offer than what you bid.

with offer/counter-offr, the seller has to accept your offer for you to get the domain.
offers expire after a few days, so they are not hanging out there forever .
