    Such a blatant case of unfair competition...

    Does anyone know many people or companies have access to the API?

    I disagree. They have less chance of snapping closeout domains, in fact, if you check whois of such domains (after they're transferred), you will rarely see HD there. Closeouts are mostly snapped by other domainers with API access, but it's still possible to grab many of them by hand. IMO you have a better chance with closeouts than with auctions, and save a lot in the process.

    [edit] See this post by a guy who previously believed bidding is his only chance of getting a domain (vide his previous posts for comparison).

    Ok, thanks for the info.

    To be fair, when comparing closeout catch rates, you can't tell which names HD were going to catch. With auctions, you know what they want to bid on. Any domains with bids but there is no such metric with closeouts.

    Still, that doesn't change the fact that you might have a higher chance of sniping a domain you want. You might not catch a domain that both of you want, but nobody can know for sure.

    You'd be surprised. Besides the usual metrics for each name they use, they also use the data on the listing viewing. And even clicking on "+" sign next to names counts as a view. The more views, the more chance that someone is considering the name, which indicates higher chance for quality.

    So this is another way our brains is picked up for free by GD/HD alliance.

    My advice to all, never use the view function.

    Ok but if you run the API script you can just set the time and it will complete in one or two seconds?

    Okay so they only target certain domains that hit closeout, but not all of them?

    You would think, with all the domains they have, HD would at least register 913932.com as a vanity name. It is available to hand register as of now. :xf.grin:

    Thank you,

    Home schooling two kids, running multiple online stores, domaining, clinic manager, keeps me a bit busy.

    Spent the past few months installing software and automating a lot of the processes.
    Starting to see the benefit now as I actually get to enjoy down time.

    I knew it was Huge Domains right away but I wanted the domain and it caught me by surprise when they bid that high.

    Thanks for the kind words
