Hi everyone, quick 1st question: Can I get a 2010 GoDaddy coupon?.

My 2nd question is: I tried to grab an expired name (registered with Godaddy) by backordering it through Godaddy and ordering it with Snapnames. I eventually won the name via my Snapnames order.

My understanding is that since Godaddy was the Registar, the name should have either gone to my GD backorder or to TDNAM.

Can anyone explain why the Snapnames order was successful?..

No problemo ...

Thanks for the rep ...

Two more things ...

As described above , ordering a GoDaddy backorder after the 43rd is not a for-sure-acquisition of a GoDaddy-registered-domain , but just a simple backorder competing with the dropcatchers ... moreover , in the 37th-42nd period , it probably is not a good idea to order a backorder since you can buy it for cheaper at TDNAM (FireSale) ... unless you think it would be acquired instantly by someone else when it appears there , in which case you can secure it with a (ordered-before-the-37th) backorder , before it goes to FireSale (supposing that it gets no bids in the expired auction).

Secondly ... it might be a little confusing from the description above , but the previous registrant can renew the HostGator according to the ToS until the 42nd (+$80) if ithere were bids on TDNAM ... and until the 72nd (+$80) if it passed through TDNAM and went to Registry Redemption ... though I would not leave it to the last day because they send a retrieval request to the registry which can take a couple of days to process ... finally , if it goes to pending delete , it cannot be retrieved and gets deleted after 5 days ...

I don't know what happens if you request the retrieval the last day of redemption and the registrar asks for the retrieval on the same day , but the registry processes it a day later ... logically they might decline it so it's better to do it a couple of days in advance ... unless , that's what happened when some people said that a HostGator the saw in pending delete , did not finally drop and was still with the previous registrant ... gazzip , are you reading this ?

Actually it's a bad thing to backorder it after the start of the auction because your backorder is accepted but is only activated after the end of the normal auction and before the firesale. So anyone could place a minimum bid and get the HostGator in the auction.

Actually, as we all know. There isn't much point to using a GoDaddy backorder if all domains go to TDNAM for auction. Better to just snap it up at the auction itself. If it's in the 30 day redemption period there isn't much point if GD cannot even catch their own dropping names...

Actually I was just clarifying that besides not being a for-sure acquisition if backordered after the 43rd ... also it probably is cheaper to FireBuy it than backorder it from the 37th to the 42nd supposing that it gets no bids in the expired auction ...

Regarding backordering it before the auction , I think it gets a first bid on the auction , but I think it might be cheaper to just bid it in the auction ... or follow it to the last minute (so that noone bids on it) and then quickly buying it in the FireSale ... though without the backorder there is a small risk someone might FireBuy it before you .....

I think it's pointless to backorder during the fire sale. It's the same as backordering in the 30 day redemption. Besides fire sale is cheaper by $5.

Yep ordering before the auction start gets you on as the first bidder. I think you save the ICANN fee if you backorder it rather than bid at auction.

I recommend anyone wanting to grab a GD/BR/WWD registered, expiring HostGator not to use a backorder at all, but to just snipe it in the last few minutes of the TDNAM auction. We are in agreement..
