    Netfleet's Guaranteed Backorder Service
    Hi Guys,
    Does Netfleet offer a full money back guarantee if the domain becomes available and is not successfully registered to me?

    From memory, the backorder service is a pay per service that's valid for 2 years. There's no guarantee of the domain either purging from the registry, nor of NetFleet registering it when it does drop. The backorder service has no guarantee.

    No, you don't get your money back.

    I stand corrected. It never used to be this wa - if you look at the backorder info on the NetFleet site, it doesn't mention the guarantee, it's only mentioned on the NetRegistry site.

    Looks like a four year old blog post on the Netregistry site that hasn't been updated... Hopefully someone from there is reading this. :)

    You have to look at backorders like a bet. If you have a hunch, you put your $200 down and see what happens over the next two years...

    They don't always become available, but I've had three with Netfleet and their record has been 100%.

    no refund and i don't think any company offers it.

    i have only ever used it once and i got the domain, its a gamble true but they won against DS so thats a pretty good effort.

    one thing i did do though was ring them 2 days before ( and they answered LOL ) and just pointed it out to them, not sure if that help but it didn't hurt.

    i also know others not on dnt that have used it successfully MANY times as i have been privy to the facts post auction.

    Dropcatch.com seems to be the best bet for dropping .com domain names at the moment but pool.com used to be the best so it might be worth putting an order in across both and even Snapnames.
