Im in a pool.com auction any tips?
Im in my first pool.com auction does anyone have any tips? I know it sounds silly but I just want to increase my chances.. Someone else is winining at $500...
Maybe go to godaddy.com and buy a buyback there as well. Try a copule other places, might cost alittle of money but if you can get that back in the first month of you having the domain name why not?
Yep but for the auction to go in in pool.com means that they have already caught it............
Be sure to monitor VERY CLOSELY during the last 1/2 hr...people waiting quietly out there and charge in the very last min....
speaking of my "bad" experience though
Depends how good the name is. If it is worth it put your highest bid in towards the end just like good ol' eBay auctions.

I used to do that during my ebay-days

set a max price you are prepared to pay for the domain *AND STICK TO IT*
Postmaster - do your research and know what your highest dollar amount is before the auction draws to a close. There is nothing worse than winning an auction to realize later that you got caught in the hype and overspent!
Not a good idea, godaddy's success rate is poor. Try namewinner as an alternative

I am sorry for my post
I have never used any services like pool.com godaddy.com namewinner.com etc... I thought Pool.com was the same, but it isn't and I learned what it was. Thanks again.
Np mate.... Since Im not going to bother auctioning for the domain its artdealer.com which I must say is exelent.... You guys should know that pool.com have chnaged the way the auction works.... If last minite bids fall in then the time is now extented for 5 minites after afew bids then its extended for 2 minites everytime after.... Just an other way pool.com can leach more money out of people.....
Thanks for all your tips keep em coming...
strange .. that domain has 8 months of registration left ...
Expiration Date: 30-jan-2005
Thats really wierd......
ICANN Registrar: NETWORK SOLUTIONS, INC.
obviously since pool.com as it, its been renewed... Which would explain the 2005 expirey... Also its on for $1150 thats way too much if you ask me...
Have a bucket of cash handy!
pool auctions wont stop unless all bidders stop bidding, not like old days, i had bids in the last 10 - 3 seconds before they change to this greedy style
Postmaster, for this domain if u saw seen.com it was expiring 2006 or 2008 but it was pending delete because the registrar DELETED it and it had more years togo.
so you mean it was an accident by the registar? Could this mean that its dodgy to own.
accident or deleted due it was fraudlent registration
yes godaddy success rate is the poorest in my opinion.
so many good domains I would have had but they failed on every single one of them. I wish they can give a refund back because I dont know what to do with all my backorder credits I have with them
Mate, you did realise that if you did one backorder and it failed you can reuse it for a year? Unless you were backordering multiple names of course.....
Yes I know but whats the point of adding another domain to it when the success rate is only 1%? Thats why I wish if there is some type of way I can at least upgrade my domain with my backorder credit I wont be using anymore
Im very lucky when using godaddy, I guess.
