I am new domain investor so i take it easy and mostly read, watch and listen rather than buying. My first successful flip was a lucky sale i made with hand-registered expired catchy dot ME in 2014 and sold it 9 days later at flippa for $1000. Last month i discovered domain sherpa show (thank you Michael Cyger and Drew Rosener ) and decided to educate myself and start with domain investing in my spare time. So, yesterday i decided to test backordering domains. I picked 3 com domains: EasyRetirement //com KidsNutritionist //com CryptoOcean //com I read that dropcatch is recommended mostly thanks to their acquision of 500+ registrars, but dynadot may do the work if the domain is not very competitive. As i wasn't sure if these domains are interesting for other investors (and bots) decided to go with dynadot and if domain is attractive enough to be backordered from more than 2 domainers at dropcatch, I will join an auction since it is public. What happened with the domains? All of them were registered (dynadot failed to backorder them for me) and it seem that there are no auctions at dropcathing services i have checked (namejet, snapnames, dropcatch, dynadot...). Here are the new registrars from updated whois: EasyRetirement - Registrar: hotdomaintrade KidsNutritionist - Registrar: networksolutions CryptoOcean - Registrar: hotdomaintrade I am really keen to find out how new owners registered these domains. They most likely used some backordering service, but also it seems that they won the domain without auction, so either there was no interest from other domainers for this particular domains or their backordering service is custom build similar to desktopcatcher. Any ideas what happened?
