    So I can't post a godaddy closeout? They don't lose their age and aren't handregs.

    Also, backorders can go for thousands. I use a catching system for UK domains where if the system catches it does to auction. I was in for Cater.co.uk the other day, not available since 1995, caught by the catching system and instantly auctioned to the systems users to $700.

    You think that should be on the hand reg thread even though it wasn't hand regged? A $700 hand reg?

    Looking at this thread title, "purchase or snap", what do you consider a purchase and what do you consider a snap?

    And do you fully understand how backordering works?

    This has confused me as well.

    A catch and a hand reg are very different.

    In fact, UK domainers spend thousands on their own catching scripts.

    By either buying from owner and transferring it or acquiring it on expired auctions/closeouts...

    On topic, I believe the OP's intention was to exclude ONLY the hand registrations, although he might have also intended to exclude backorders with no competition? Only he can clarify, I guess.

    .COM

    Extremely common everyday Japanese word with high TLD Demand (taken in 20 extensions). I purchased mainly due to the high usage in Japanese language. The Romanji version...what you see in English characters is also highly searched, getting about 8,100/monthly searches. There is no direct translation for this word in English, which is what makes it unique...it describes that warm feeling you get when you reminisce about something, like for example loading up your Gamecube with a bunch of old friends and playing Super Smash bros or when your favorite song from high school starts playing on your Spotify etc.

    Over the past few months I've also acquired:

    Nijigen.com--->2D in Japanese but more commonly used to represent Anime, Comics and Games i.e the 2D world.

    Natsuyasumi.com---> Summer Vacation.
