    I've been watching a domain from couples of the week.
    It's now in Pending Delete status but Dynadot refused to Backorder it. They saying we can Backorder only after 75 days after their expiration date. and My Domain expiry date is 2018-04-06. But as Icann.org says Your domain will be held in this status for 30 days. After five calendar days following the end of the redemptionPeriod, your domain is purged from the registry database and becomes available for registration.
    TLD of Domain is .com. So, Who is Correct? I've watched that domain to come into PendingDelete from RedemptionPeriod.
    Ps- That's my 1st Dropcatching.

    Please see the following links to understand this better -

    https://www.domainsherpa.com/understanding-the-domain-name-lifecycle/

    The short answer is - both are right (almost). The status of a domain name after expiry are:

    Renewal Grace Period (45 days)
    Redemption Grace Period (30 Days)
    Pending Delete period (5)

    You can, on Dynadot, backorder a domain only if it is in the pending delete phase. Similarly, at DropCatch, you can backorder a domain only when it is in the pending delete phase.

    On the other hand, at Snapnames and Namejet, you can backorder a domain pretty much anytime.

    In both the cases, the dropcatching will only happen when the domain actually drops. In the case of DD and DC, the domain will certainly drop because you've placed a backorder in the pending delete phase (whether they're able to catch the domain is a different matter altogether)

    This is not a question of rules.
    This is just because Dynadot backorder system is designed to work only with Pending Delete lists (which are received by them from the corresponding registries).
    So just wait until your desired domain will be displayed in Dynadot's backorder list (usually 4 days prior the drop date).

    Anyway with Dynadot your chances are very small.

    Does it mean that Domains Skipped Renewal Grace Period? I checked few more Domains whom Pending Delete status comes after 75 days After expiration date. But with Domain It's diff.
    As Domains already in Pending Delete Period I highly Doubt It'll ever come to DropCatch List.
    As Domains is very Important for me. I've backordered it on Namejet/Snapname. Also, I tried pheenix
    but Got issue, Maybe resolved in 1-2 Days. Can you suggest some more Catcher which may increase my probability?

    Forget about Dynadot...
    It is good only for .ORG/.info backorder.

    I believe trusting only 1 Backordering service is a bad Idea. but wondering why Dynadot is Good for .org/.info ?
    Also, Do you have any recommendation for more service excluding I've mentioned above?

    Because .ORG is very specific gTLD...
    All dropcatchers have ~ equal chances with it...

    .info - low competition there, that's why.

    What do you mean by Very Specific gTLD?
    .com/.net are gTLD too and Aren't All Dropcatcher have Equal Chances for them too?

    .ORG has unique drop procedure.
    And a very short drop window.
    In brief.

    + NameBright/DropCatch.
    And this is enough for .com/.net

    p.s. NameJet and SnapNames were merged ~2 years ago... so just 1 backorder is enough.

    Chances depend on how many channels/accreditations has certain dropcatcher to access Registry.

    No they did not.. If you want more concrete info, then you need to provide specifics like domain names and dates
