I've been trying my hand at using a few services like Namejet and Snap Names the past week and have been having a terrible time. I realise the importance of using several services, yet I've been the only bidder on about 8 domains and the backordering services have only managed to secure just one domain, which is obviously a very low success rate. Even though I've been the only bidder, the statuses have changed from pending deletion to wishlist in Namejet, for example, which begs the question what is the point of using these services? Maybe I'm being cynical but it seems as if these services are kind of shady, and the more research I do the more I find others saying the same. Is such a low success rate normal?
