    I probably don't understand your situation completely but to me bidding days in advance is weird. If I would be travelling all the time, I would still have a 3G/4G connection on my mobile and I would add the domain I want to bid on my watchlist, to get email notifications and I would also set reminders 12 hours before auction ends, so I could bid then. That would increase the chance of getting a good domain for cheap. Whatever works for you though.

    You agree with me, so you are not stupid, idiot or dumb :xf.grin:
    I apologize to everyone who got offended by these words, but what should I say, I don't think it's smart for those who know they will be able to bid during the last few hours or last few minutes but still choose to bid 5-7 days before auction ends. I started this thread when I looked at auctions that day and 90% of domains I wanted, at different marketplaces, all had bids on them even for those with 5-7 days left!! I am angry, especially at those who don't want to win the domain but don't want to let others get the domain for cheap, whoever they are.

    Will be back after taking a narcisstie :xf.grin:

    All I know is that even if I was a billionaire, I would bid during the last few minutes and then I could outbid everyone if I wanted to, I don't think I have ever done that but if I know that I won't be able to come online when the auction ends only then I would use a proxy bid.

    You say "hate" it's so harsh.. A different vernacular would have been better.

    I wish GD had bid handles so that we could see who is placing these bids... It's a self-sabotaging approach for sure and I seldom see "bidder 1" win any auctions, as they tend to get outbid by latecomers.

    I asked about snipers earlier via a thread I opened.

    So do Sniper software exist for Godaddy or Sedo? or do you need to hire someone to make one?

    I hate those registrants who renew their names in the last ten minutes of an expired auction, and just after I have posted a $1 BIN.

    I wonder if the software is precise enough for me to bid in the last few seconds. I used to be able to get my bid on in Ebay in the last second of an auction. :)

    Yes it's best to bid on snapnames.com on the last day, avoid NameJet bidding altogether, and wait for the closeout. You might get away with the auction on Godaddy but you probably won't. And completely avoid dropcatch. This strategy will increase your odds of success dramatically.

    How about we make the ultimate auction house, where we could bid on names from all auction houses via some API?

    Some folk simply want to own a name before they have won it, a decent sized first bid may be enough to scare off some of the competition, I have been to "real world" auctions and just left my hand held high to scare off other prospective bidders, they can see I want it and will already be holding my hand up for the next bid. As for domain names, just do a proxy and accept the end result ..... either way. Good news there are plenty more to be had if you lose. Funny post though

    Not all, in fact I don't usually bother to bid if I can't snipe the auction.

    Name silo has no extending auctions, but they have that "max bid" scheme, that if played right, you can get names for cheap.

    bidding days before is just a rookie move, just gives the heads up to those who are just watching for names with bids.
