Pool.com Backorder Domains
Everyone has domains they want, but unfortunately they are most likely already registered. I was lucky enough to register my name, Zac Johnson(.com) back in 2000. Unfortunately someone else had my full name of Zachary Johnson(.com). Even though I prefer "Zac" over "Zachary", it would still be cool to have both. Whoever it was that owned ZacharyJohnson.com, just used the site as a one page personal resume. I had emailed the domain owner a few times and asked if he was interested in selling the domain for $500. I sent the email a few more times and never heard back from him. Yesterday, out of the blue I got an email from Pool.com saying the domain ZacharyJohnson.com had dropped and was picked up for my account. How cool is that! Instead of paying the guy $500 for the domain, I just had to wait a couple years and got it for $60, which went to Pool.com just for picking it up! (you only pay pool.com if they actually get the domain for you) I haven’t used Pool.com in a while, but I used to check them almost daily for their latest domain drops and pickups. I had made a list in my account of a bunch of domains that I wanted if they should ever not be renewed. (never expecting to get any of them) Amazingly enough ZacharyJohnson.com was the first domain for it to actually work! I am so happy with Pool.com and highly recommend them to all if you are trying to get that special domain name that is also taken!
