I tried backordering a domain that was pending delete last week. It became available yesterday, but the backorder capture failed. This morning I was able to manually register that domain name, despite my still having the backorder open.
What gives? Isn't the whole idea of a backorder to obtain a domain name when it becomes available, without having to manually register or monitor the availability?
@dbrooks Unfortunately Godaddy's backordering service needs work. This same thing has happened to me.
