      How do you get a domain that's not for sale?

      You offer more money.

      cheaterbugknows.battlelag.net

      I did got better now, but still, worth it.

    • You backorder it on godaddy.com, then backorder it on 1&1.com in case your 1st backorder fails

      You probably don't want to only use the two worse backorder services if that domain is worth anything to you and might be interesting for other people too..

      Once I tried the "backorder" feature on GoDaddy to capture an expiring GoDaddy-registered domain for a customer. The domain was specific to the customer's organization - nobody else would want it except blackmailing squatters. I don't remember what the "backorder" feature was called, but basically it monitored the domain status, and would capture/register the domain if it became available. Since the domain was already registered by GoDaddy, I thought that there was little risk that someone else could or would register it, and GoDaddy would naturally capture it, since they were the incumbent registrar. The customer paid an annual fee to GoDaddy for this extra service. The customer is a very old senior with a small handcrafting business and no money. She and a couple friends sew products that they sell on the internet.

      When the domain expired, GoDaddy sat there and did nothing. Basically, GoDaddy sat idle while a squatter registered the domain at a different registrar soon after it expired. As far as I can tell, GoDaddy never tried to capture the domain for the customer. Once the domain was registered again, there was nothing to be done. The domain belonged to the new squatter. The sad thing is that the squatter is wasting their money to keep the domain registered. The customer will never buy it from them.

      I disliked GoDaddy before this happened, but that incident underscored the point. GoDaddy is very good at ensnaring non-technical people into registering their domains and hosting websites at GoDaddy. Some of them became my customers after they were "sufficiently pregnant" with GoDaddy, so I am forced to work with GoDaddy on their behalf. I would never recommend GoDaddy to anyone for anything.

      Almost 20 years ago, I purchased the .com of my first and last name. Since then I've also purchased other TLDs of my name. So glad I bought it back then.

      It wasn't offered when I originally registered it, but since I have added it.

      I bought the .org of my last name back in 1998. My last name is a common noun in Italian, and the .com was already taken by a huge firm.

      Since then, it's been my email for 20 years.

      If you own battlelag.net, congrats. Especially since you had the foresight to buy it in 1985.

      If you are proud of "owning" cheaterbugknows.battlelag.net but don't own battlelag.net, you are...well, I'll be nice and let you fill that adjective in yourself.

    • i would say mine is dedibase dot com or dedihelp dot com, both of which are for sale ;)

    • ZenZen Member

      Since I bought it on LET (iirc), how about image ;) Not really my most prized though.

      curl -L range.website

    • I really like my "pork dot pk" and "milk dot mk" domains :)

    • My most valuable one is probably my corporate domain, but that's because the business itself is valuable but not specifically the domain itself.

      I do have a three letter .com domain from 1999, though, if we're just speaking straight domain resale value.

      I own a domain hack of my last name, norr dot is. I also own cdn dot xyz, unmanagedcloud dot com.

    • lazytlazyt Member

      Always wanted to do the last name hack. But $660 + a year is just too much.

      Have I mentioned how much I hate auto correct recently?

    • Touchingmyself.com might be willing to sell it for the right price however

      dah85.com is my most prized domain, my initials and birth year. I'm hoping one day some rich famous dude born in 1985 with my initials just HAS to have it and offers me a gazillion dollars for it.

      Oh and greencloud.network - hopefully someone also just HAS to have it.. any takers? :P

    • Not a huge collector, still managed to get some decent ones from LET for a great price.

      storagevm dot com & dot net

      Not sure what to do with them yet.

      Like.

      There were several comments about using backorder above, including the poll in the original post. I wanted to make it clear that backorder does not work in all cases, even when it is purchased from the registrar that currently manages the domain and would handle its expiration.

      Based on my experience, we know for certain that GoDaddy's backorder feature does not work, even under the best possible preconditions where GoDaddy is the incumbent, the domain actually expired without being renewed by the previous squatter, etc.

      GoDaddy took the customer's money for several years, under the promise that they would register the domain if and when it expired. When the domain expired, GoDaddy abrogated their responsibilities and allowed a different squatter to register the domain through a different registrar. As far as I am concerned, GoDaddy's behavior is tantamount to fraud, because they are selling a service that they do not actually provide.

      My customer didn't get their "prize domain" because GoDaddy let them down and did not keep their promise, and I want others to know.

    • classyclassy Member

      My most prized domain was mailwire.com, a domain from 1998 that I bought from @miTgiB for $101 in this auction.

      Little did I know that @miTgiB is a money hungry scumbag who decided he could just take the domain from me and sell it again because he felt like he had the right to because I kept it idle in his clientarea while I developed the website.

      I was 16 and back then $101 was a good chunk of money. Still makes me angry to this day. I always think of this bullshit when I feel demotivated.

      TL;DR: Trust nobody, especially desperate LET hosts

    • The most priced domain is the one you cancelled, cause you cannot afford that crap anymore.
