    How did they "take" it from you if you never bought it?

    I "bought" pro.co few days ago at GoDaddy after they suggested it when a search for prosomething dot com failed. I went through the process... checkout, PayPal, and when finished with registration they even offered me hosting and/or website builder for this domain....And that was the end of it, domain was not in my dashboard and I never received the confirmation from GoDaddy that the domain was purchased.

    Later I checked and it was in the list of restricted domains for .CO register. Why is GoDaddy offering these...I don;t know

    Go Daddy will offer you domains they dont have, take your money and then tell you the bad news later.

    I used to think that Go Daddy had special access to domains that other registrars said were not available....nope, if its not with anyone else then its not with Go Daddy.

    Check out www.char5.com ; Two nights ago I bought one that actually sounds like a word and is memorable.

    same thing happened to me,while searching for a loan related domain,goddady suggested me a very good domain .com which is worth thousands.

    I quickly added it to cart and when paying,domain disappear,so i did the search again,domain was still available and when add to cart and pay,no domain.

    Then i check domain on namecheap,domain already registered!!!I keep away from them now.

    That is becuase it's a premium domain that they sell at go.co - And their premium domains is not cheap. Think a 1 letter domain cost $2,000,000

    It's more that it does not show correct info. If you would check who.is for that domain so would you see that the domain was registered long time ago. If it's to good to be true, it proberly is.
