    Expiring Domain Names


    I want to grab an expiring domain name. I've used Godaddy in the past with less than positive results. I'm trying pool now, but won't know if they are successful until the domain name is available.

    Can anyone recommend a good backordering service?

    (I couldn't find a good forum for this so I posted here. Please move if there is a more appropriate forum.)

    Yes- The Top 3 grabbing services are:

    Snap Names
    Pool
    Enom's Club Drop

    In order to actually get a domain that you want, you'll be best off setting up an account at all 3 and backordering the domain at all 3. Remember, you only pay a back order fee if you get the domain, so there is no cost to backorder the same domain in multiple places.

    Between those 3, i'd say you have a -- 85% chance of getting the domain, or atleast going into a post drop auction.

    Thanks, Scottfish.

    I'll try that. I do have the name in question setup for backorder at pool and godaddy. I'll add it to the others as well.

    Thanks again.
