The Auctions API allows developers to interact with the GoDaddy system. Information on how to access and use the Auctions API is found in a few places.
Note: The Aftermarket API can only be used for closeouts at this time.
- Go to the Get Started page of the Developer Portal.
- Under Setup, follow the instructions to get access to the GoDaddy API.

- After you're connected to the FTP server, open the apidoc folder, and then download the AuctionsAPIRef pdf file.
