SnapNames and Pool are still the best. Enom Club Drop plays along. NameWinner might still be (barely) alive. GoDaddy has a drop service that hits and misses, mostly misses, but you queue first for domains that they drop.
Not only did they not secure the domain, they then explained that the owner had renewed, that someone else got it, sorry it's gone etc .. yet after persistance of checking myself I managed to secure the domain their specialist service said was gone ...
I have subsequetly been attempting to recover my money, only to be refused, even given the exceptional circumstances and the fact I acheived what they couldn't... just smells of con to me..
because godaddy provides crappy backorder service doesn't make the entire process of back ordering domains useless. Let's face it - godaddy has a "real" domain registration business. snap and pool specialize in expired - making their bid to get them a little bit more "serious" than gd.
