Have any experience with Snap Names?

Are they effective?

Anyone have any experience with SnapNames? Did they work for you?

Ive got about 5 backorders with them - so small sample!

In my experiece it seems to depend on the registrar that the domain is hosted with.

Snapnames has registered two for us. They seem to good relationship with Verisign and Namescout!

With some of the others, we missed the boat!

What I like about their system is that it is flexible in that you can select another domain to backorder if the one you were watching was renewed.

I am waiting on a domain to come off hold from Netsol, it Expired on Oct. 18th, on Hold since Dec. 6th. I am wondering if there is any chance it could be deleted soon.

I have heard all sorts of dates. Also, I know the person who owns it, and I might be able to convince them to delete the domain name themselves. (I relied on one of their subdomains for my business. Stooooopid move on my part!) Does that speed up the process? I registered to get it via snapnames.

If I were you and I knew the person that currently owns the domain, I would ask them if they would be willing to renew it and then sell it to me because that would be the least risky route (provided you trust the person). They cannot delete it themselves.

I have great success with Dotster. It is very easy to maintain you domains and they have good customer support.
