Thanks for the info. Sorry you lost out on some $ but you should get a refund (I hope).

That's ok. if its available, it will be shown as available. but you need to buy it paying premium prices.for that you can contact the registry or registry authorized registrars who sell their premium domains.
You'll get your refund in 10-15 days, not because of godaddy but because of your bank policies.

Yeah you could write a book on godaddy scams. Just now chest.com available, now it is not once I tried to buy it. That happens a lot on godaddy you will search and then it is gone once you try to buy I think they grab the good names themselves which I am sure is against icann rules for a registrar?

that could have been an error. Chest.com was registered in 1996 and is registered till 2017 already

That sucks... I just can't stand those kinds of tactics. GoDaddy isn't the only one that does those kinds of things either! What I always wondered is... Do you have to contact them and request a refund, or is it done automatically if they don't book the domain for you? If you have to actually contact them for a refund then I could see a number of people potentially forgetting and them making an extra boat load off it!

They have a bad glitch with showing a premium domain or a plural alternative as available then you click the purchase button and it says error and you get redirected back to domain search. It happens so many times it's very annoying!

I also paid for backorders on 2 domains with godaddy never got the domains and never got the refunds! And no they were not premium but things I actually wanted to develop.

So why is it that no registrar is accountable for their mistakes and they always go in their favor?

hi all
i just chatted with the live support guys


  • Brandon - One moment, please.
  • you - ok
  • Brandon - Ok this domain name is being sold as a Premium domain. So it has not been released to the market yet. It will end up going to auctions on July 15th and then you can bid on the domain.
  • Brandon - if you do not win the domain your pre reg is refunded.
  • you - but why it is showing as pre-reg, dotguru has released a year before, why it is showing as pre-reg
  • you - its confusing
  • Brandon - because it's pre registration for the premium domain. not all gurus were released
looks like those names were not released earlier, kept as reserve and now those are released and multiple pre-reg will leads to closed auction

good luck!
