What do the statuses on my backorder requests page mean?

There are 4 statuses that you may come across from the backorder requests page of the user CP. Here are what they mean.

ACTIVE: Domain names that you have placed backorder requests for. Status will change after the name has dropped.

SUCCESS: The domain was successfully secured on your behalf, either by you being the only person who places the request or winning it at auction.

AUCTION: The domain is currently in auction. It is open for bids.

FAILED: The domain was not successfully secured for your account. It could mean we have failed to catch the name, or it was won by someone else in auction.

Note: We send email notification when we successfully caught the name that you requested. If you are the only person who requests the name, we will automatically create an order for you. If there are multiple requests, the domain will go to a public auction where everyone has a chance to win the domain.
