The domain renewal date format is very confusing for example 04/11/18, I assumed was 11th November 2018 as every part of my account lists Australia.
I don't want to have to go to Whois every time to double check. Is there some way I change a setting in my account to format the dates.
Go Daddy is a global company and nearly every other country in the world use DD-MM-YYYY or at the very least work to the Global standard of ISO 8601 guidelines of YYYY-MM-DD.
Once again I ask, is there a setting I can change in my account to format to a standard that is not confusing?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks for posting and being a part of the GoDaddy Community.
No plans to roll this out yet, but I would be happy to pass this along to our development team in hopes that this is something they can add into accounts in the future.
Thanks for your reply. I hope this can be addressed soon. Perhaps we're a bit slow down here in AU (too many bushfires and snakes or something 🙂 but when I see a date like 03-05-2019, my mind strobes between March and May like a bad disco.
Nate, I agree, ISO 8601 would suit perfectly!
Hi @WillyWombat. Thanks for reaching out. Can you confirm exactly where you'd like to see this the date change? From what I've seen, the date order can be changed in most areas of you're account by changing the regional version of the website you're using. For example, in the Domain Manager, if a domain has an expiration date of May 4th it would show up as 5/4/19 in the US but 4/5/19 on au.godaddy.com. I tested this and saw it was the same on other areas of the site as well. That is how the website is supposed to function. See below:
