    You can do like me and make your own drop catching software... it's free and I suspect it works just as well, since they both use API calls to register dropping domains.

    It sounds great, how many times register requests can your software send to Registrar?

    It depends on how many other queries are going for the same name, I believe. There's no limit to the number of requests per second, (with the API I use) just as long as the last one is finished before sending the next.
    I have another program I use as well in succession that sends multiple whois requests until a "domain not found" source key is found, then it fires a single auto redirect to the API query(this one, to a different registrar, of course).

    Sorry, but not at this time. Allot of work has(and still is) being put into it. It's not for sale, either.

    Maybe someday. I don't think there would be a huge demand for it though. It's not a magical tool that will catch a name that other drop catchers are going for, but it's definitely a one-up on manually catching domains... plus, there's already software that does the exact same thing.

    Namesilo and dynadot

    I have a cli php script that uses curl commands to connect to the api as well as a vb windows form program that uses multithreaded http connect requests

    There are tons of tutorials on the internet to learn how to program. If you already have some experience, it's very easy.
