Your question was: How to get a 30 percent off GoDaddy coupon?.
Thanks for the prompt reply,.
There's some very interesting points there and I had no idea that there were such partnerships in operation (although I had an inkling)..
So by that rational are Pool.com an independant auction company or do they operate in conjunction with a registrar? Same for snapnames I guess?.
I just find it a little frustrating sometimes when I have the funds available to purchase a killer name from auction yet I can't get added to the auction proccess.....
I guess the way forward is to research which name is associated to which registrar then find it's affiliate for the auction..
Thank you so much for your help with this, rep added.
This might help as well. http://dnqa.net/2008/07/28/how-do-i-...t-is-expiring/.
I have a list of registrars that are partnered with auction houses near the bottom...
Snapnames has dozens of partners registrars, so does pool - not sure how many godaddy has.
I have to nip out but I'll try and find the "OLD LIST" later tonight just as an example, I have posted it here at namepros ....somewhere.
Someone will hopefully post it for you in the meantime.
You are both stars.
Another big reason expired names don't always come up for auction is that some registrars just decide to keep them. Tucows alone admits to keeping 6000 to 8000 names per month for their "portfolio.".
Read this thread if you don't believe me: http://www.namepros.com/domain-name-...egistrars.html.
NameJet - Network Solutions, eNom, BulkRegister, ClubDrop.
Pool - NameScout, DotAsia.
SnapNames - Register.com, Moniker.com, Answerable.com, MyDomain.com, Dotster.com, DotRegister.com.
TDNAM - GoDaddy, WildWestDomains.

I found out the hard way that Pool basically goes out and registers the domains if they can, then sell them to you at ridiculous rates. I "backordered" with them, was awarded the HostGator after they secured it, then saw on whois that it was a fresh renewal. They had waited until it expired, registered it, and sold it to me for $60.00, and I lost the HostGator age (5+ years).
Anyway, it is probably more complicated than that, but I have to say that I'm not a big fan of Pool. I monitor the other three daily and the names usually go to Pool if noone wants them from those 3 (except Pool's partners like NameScout, etc.)...
Some names I backordered on Snap were rejected, the message following was "Sorry, this name couldn't be backordered"..
There's been some wonderful tips and pointers here guys and plenty for me to get my teeth into.
All the best.
Ak I find this both disturbing and unsurprising. Should there not be an independent body set up for regulation?.
Actions like this will surely mean the eventual end for many domainers and create the ultimate cyber squatter......the registrars themselves. Bad.
Thanks, thats the list I was looking for.
It does'nt look like it has been updated for ages.
One of the biggest/most important change is Network Solution names now go to NameJet for auction and NOT snapnames.
Good luck snagging them, the competition is fierce.
Snapnames and Enom are great in backordering the domains..
