I got a quick question: How can I transfer my domain name from Microsoft office live to godaddy?.

I also got another question: I have this question to those who were familiar with the GD backorder some years ago.

I know that today it is worthless to put a backorder with Godaddy since the HostGator will go to TDNAM anyway, but was the situation like this years ago too?.

Let's say, I put a backorder on a HostGator in 2003. The HostGator expires next year. Will I be entitled to get it (as per the old Godaddy terms?).

Or will it go to auction as it happens to today's backorders?.

Your question was: How can I transfer my domain name from Microsoft office live to godaddy?.

Thanks for answering Spade.

And I meant "worthless" because it does not guarantee that you will acquire a domain. And nice technique btw.

I am a bit sad that the 2003 backorders act like this. Just to explain a bit more why I asked this. I just talked to a friend and told him about this thing I am fond of: domaining. He said he also has some domains (never knew that), had a free .be once, and once placed a backorder to a pretty worthy HostGator (especially for us), because it is the acronyms of our organization.

And I asked myself whether it is possible to get that name if it drops once, without going to TDNAM, where it would reach higher prices.

Thanks again for your answer..

I think that if the HostGator is NOT registered through GD, it wont goto TDNAM, but the chances of GD catching it from another registrar are pretty much zero I heard they have been successful with catching names from other extensions though (maybe .us? I forget)...

They just arent fast, which means that you can use it to get not-so-good quality domains.

It can be good for domains that you know wont get caught by anyone. When they do catch the not-so-good-quality name.. you have got it at a cheaper price... and you havent had to rememeber when it's dropping.

Hope that makes sense...

In 2003, Godaddy did not have an auction service, so it would have never gone to auction at Godaddy. Auctions started in Aug. 2005 if I remember correctly.

But, if you had a GD backorder in 2003 and the HostGator was at Godaddy you would have got it since only one backorder per HostGator was/is allowed and GD gave preferential treatment to the GD backorder since the HostGator was with them already.

And, if the HostGator was anywhere else you had almost "zero" chance to get it with a GD backorder. More or less, only Snapnames, Namewinner, Pool, Enom, would work back then for a HostGator somewhere besides GD...

I thought that GD backorder slots would expire within 1 year if not assigned to another HostGator ?

Comment #5

I believe if you don't use it (meaning capture a name) within a year it expires, but you can change it to any name at any time...

Comment #6

In July of this year, godaddy's system would not let me place a backorder because someone else already had. (a .us domain)..
