domain i want went in pending delete status

Msg#: 4196812 posted 3:51 pm on Sep 5, 2010 (gmt 0)


I have 2 questions.

First one is:
A domain i would like to own went in "pending delete" statut 3 days ago.
Everywhere on the web i can read that domains remain in pending delete statut for 5 days before beeing droped, but in snapesdomain auctions are supposed to start 09/28.
How can the auctions start september/28/2010 if this domain is droped in 2 days ?


Do you know good pre-ordering service which do not put whished domains in auction? Pre-ordering service which just try to grabe the domain for you?

Which one is the best, namejet or snapename?

There are alot of drop catchers out there. YOu best bet is to register with multiple services to try to catch it as it drops. check the registrar where it is hosted at. If they have a drop service, that can be your best bet for acquiring the domain.

thank you for your answer.

But why does snapenames tells auctions will start at september/28/2010 while this domain is in a Pending Status since 3 days ?

How can i know for sure when the domain will be do dropped?

it may have moved into pending delete before snapnames expected it to.

perhaps, if snapnames grabs the domain, they can start the auction whenever they want.

I second that. From own painful experience, always try MULTIPLE backorder services.
