    Hey there,

    I was pretty frustrated that I couldn’t find macOS dropcatching sofware which i can use for not-dot-coms or to overtake hand-registering while I was out. I asked Robert from Worbee.com to help me build a simple backordering app for macOS. We didn’t sleep for a few nights and made a simple Dynadot API based app. It sends automated requests to register a chosen domain name. It keeps trying again and again after every single response from Dynadot API. It's working great if you even have dynamic IP (like me), you just need to whitelist your new IP in Dynadot.

    If you would be interest to have a copy (mac or Windows), please reply bellow and I will send you a message with a link to download. ;) Don't forget to mention your Operating System.

    So far only 6 interested. Perhaps not many macOS users among domainers? O_o
    Anyway, here is what i catched few minutes ago:

    On average, it took 0.72s between two requests.

    Hello ivbran,

    It is sometimes difficult to find tools for macOS, and we appreciate you taking the time to share this with the community.

    I don't have a macOS, but I would be interested in hearing how well this proggy works. :)
    Could we get some reviews on it, please?

    Anyway, we are almost ready with Windows version as well, and will be happy to share our beta. Whoever is interested to try it on Windows, just reply bellow and don't forget to mention your OS: Mac or Windows.

    Cheers,

    I'm interested in Windows.
    Are you aware of any limitation on requests? I mean, is there any danger that Dynadot would consider my repeating requests as attack of some kind?
    Any plans for other APIs? Namecheap? Porkbun?

    Hey tupungato,

    The only limit we are aware of is that you must wait for a response to your request before sending another. Failing to do this will result in a 10 minute ban. Our software is compliant with this requirement. More info here: https://www.dynadot.com/community/blog/getting-the-most-out-of-api.html

    I am sending you the link of the beta, let us know if you find any bugs and if you get any luck in drop-catching :)

    Cheers,
    ivbran

    Hey all,

    I am Robert from WorBee, @ivbran mentioned above.

    I am curious to hear your comments and suggestions. Is there anything that does not work as you need it or do you want some other features?

    The App is quite simple at this point, which was our goal, but I'm sure it would benefit from some bells and whistles.
    Let me know here in comments below or via DM.

    Robert
