    Feel that, I ordered a big backlink package recently and after delivered realized I'd ordered it for somebody else's .com instead of my .net emd. FML eh?

    Ouch sounds like you lost more than $1 :(

    I did rush it. I spent some hours yesterday doing KW research for a few sites. Waited till today to register, only to find them no longer available. Poached I guess. Thought this one was still good. Nope.

    Backlink#1 :)

    I've done that before. I just parked the domain and it does get a little type in traffic.

    You could also use it for a redirect domain.

    Sometimes being paranoid can be helpful, I always check things like 10 times...

    I've done this before as well... just contact them wherever you registered and tell them you made a mistake and ask to have it replaced.

    Worked for me.

    I've done that before and I even checked it like ten times before I registered it. I still have the domain.

    lol lol a long time back I reg'd a domain, put up a decent theme and everything only to find out I had switched the vowels in the domain (I'm dyslexic lol).

    Luckily I hadn't started backlinking, so I re registered the correct spelling domain and transferred the content over.

    If you bought it through GoDaddy, they let you return the domain within 48 hours.
