There is a
.co.uk TLD that is currently expiring (it’s currently 45 days through its 90/92 day expiration period). I would like to purchase this domain when it comes on the open market.
I’ve looked into several domain name backordering services such as GoDaddy and others, after talking to most of the technical people at these companies they said they ping the domain once a day to see if it’s available (one of them said that they ping the domain several times a second, although I have my doubts about this company’s credibility).
Does anyone have any experience using domain backordering services, are they efficient?
From the sounds of it, if there is a domain I’d really like to purchase, would I be better just to setup a calendar alert and manually check the domain several times a day?
