    Pheenix used to be the bride of block.

    Since they embarked on an upgrade, they hardly got anything caught these days when compared to their earlier days.

    Is anyone experiencing same?

    They are about equal too/worse than Dynadot, imho.

    They've been catching an odd one here and there for me. An auction I was in that ended today was a 4L .com - vcid.com - I'm sure it had competition elsewhere.

    Not overly successful, but successful enough not to be ignored.

    I thought it wasn't working at all anymore from a stretch I had earlier in the year.

    I have about 15 more backorders pending with dynadot and pheenix in the next few days and will see how it goes.

    I have a few coming up in the next few days too. Dynadot is about as effective as Pheenix. If either of them win the domains, sometimes Dynadot wins, sometimes Pheenix. I would say the probably Dynadot wins but only by a fraction. Neither will generally catch a desirable domain.

    dynadot isnt catching much for me either.

    Pheenix caught t/o/o/n/w/o/r/k/s.com today. There were multiple backorders (5 total) so i'm in a 3 day private auction.

    I cant imagine no one placed backorders at snapnames, dropcatch or namejet for this name.

    congrats. I saw that name but ignored it. what I am inferring is that pheenix hardly caught solid names at present. It therefore means that they can't compete with heavy weights for names which other BO companies would battle for.

    I backordered 4 domains today at both Pheenix and Dynadot. Results were

    Pheenix 3
    DropCatch 1
    Dynadot 0

    I have 4 more backordered over the next couple of days. I'll report on them also.

    I think it is important to state who caught the domains. Not just that Pheenix didn't catch them. Pheenix cannot compete with the big drop-catchers, like DropCatch/SnapNames/NameJet. Or if other smaller drop-catchers caught them. For example if they were all caught by DropCatch, them you cannot really complain. But if they were all caught by Dynadot, then you could legitimately complain about them. Also, it is important to know if you backordered them somewhere else as well.

    @jideofor - You cannot really expect Pheenix to beat DropCatch and SnapNames. I'm not so sure about BackOrderZone, because I don't use them.
