    If a name is pending delete and there's no bidders...I would definitely leave out namejet. There's a change whereby if there are less than I think 3 bidders, it doesn't come up. Despite this most welcome change by NJ, I would just go with backorderzone/snap or backorderzone/godaddy. In the past anyway, if you bidded on namejet - the chances are you would have company at snap or backorder zone...

    @domainer111 - Could you please explain again what NameJet changed? It wasn't clear for me. Thank you.

    I believe Dropping.com has stats and even lists of who catches what

    The first error I see is that they think TurnCommerce (DropCatch) only have 20 registrars doing the catching and are bottom of the dropcatching table. When in reality they have 500+ registrars and are the top drop catcher. Interesting site though, but with such glaring flaws, I don't think I'd pay for their services.

    IMHO, this appears to be one of the most exciting NP threads in recent times. Thumbs up Stub!

    For me I just clicked on the breadcrumb Forums>Discussions>Expired Domains and Drop Catching, and save it in Firefox. For some reason, it didn't go directly to the thread, but it was the first one on the list.

    Good domains at a cheaper price is an oxymoron. You cannot buy a dictionaryword.com in GoDaddy closeouts. But they are the cheapest capture point at $5+regfee.

    You need to do your research on what constitutes a good domain. NamePros is an invaluable resource for this. You need to watch the Marketplaces and lean a domains value. You need to learn how to sell domains.

    @stub // Sure...my understanding now, is that for names with less than 3 bidders (not sure about the exact number) ... the pending delete name will not be viewable by other domainers in the "most active" pending delete names at namejet.

    The thing is, if you spot a great drop - and I mean a great drop - with no attention from other domainers - you now have a dilemma. If you bid on NJ - you could alert the world and bang goes your cheap drop. Your bid could push it over the threshold. You would be the architect of your own downfall.

    On the other hand - you could take a chance. If you are the sole bidder at namejet...hmmm that could be nice!

    ===
    Another one to absolutely not forget about it is name.com. I've picked up allhotels.com, gamedownloader.com and softwaremarket.com - for $49, absolutely no auction. Now they have gone off the boil lately...but they are still around...still dangerous...

    Here's it's first come, first served so preparation is the key. It's like having your own private registry connections. Now the chances are small...but you just need a few...

    Please explain why you prefer GoDaddy most of all for dropcatching domains (not Pre-Release)?

    Hi Everyone!

    What do you think about the porn related names? Seems easier to buy than nanosecond fight against the fastest/nearest server to the honey. Also more saturated market. You can find almost every-single combination of the porn related keywords. Pornsites probably making the most money and they have resources. But looks like the name market also oversaturated. For a starter like me, catching a LLLL or LLLLL.com domain without money is totally impossible.

    The only way to go is to figuring out creative names on your own, I think...

    I had a good sounding domain. I didn't used it, I putted on GoDaddy auctions, why not. Someone placed a bid (200USD), damn it, I immediately selled it (one month salary here...). The funny part? I forget that I leaved to expire this domain 30 days ago... :( Now I can buy back for 80usd + one year + taxes, to sell for 200... After the taxes, I will have 80usd... Lesson learned, never ever leave again to expire a domain, moreover if it's already on auction. So I thought, what the hell, if I had luck once to sell a domain, than probably I will get a second change.

    But I just can't compete with the 3-4-5 digit random letter combo market. So I have to figuring out a little bit longer, but valuable names. They will sell less, more time, but catching them is no problem, because no one owning them.

    This is how I registered a porn related domain, which name looking similar to a worldwide known startup's name (but not too close). My plan is to not sell this for 200usd... :)

    A quick update about Pheenix. I started using then for all my not so desirable domain captures. They have been very successful at capturing my backorders. More than 90%. Often 100%. I can't say if there was competition from other backorder companies or not. But then I stopped backordering and tried to pick them up on the drop. Most dropped. The ones which were captured were captured by other backorder companies. So the strategy of using them for the more undesirable domain captures, always .com, has kind of backfired. But I haven't yet tested them for the more desirable captures to see how they do against the real opposition.

    Hey do I understand it correct that if the domain name is in redemptionPeriod then, its better to try catch it with DropCatch?

    these is how the names data look for example:

    Registrar: GODADDY.COM, LLC
    Whois Server: whois.godaddy.com
    Creation Date: 12-OCT-2014
    Updated Date: 23-NOV-2015
    Expiration Date: 12-OCT-2015

    Nameserver: No nameserver

    Registry Status: redemptionPeriod


    Or there is still a chance to get it with Godaddy ?


    Thanks in advance

    This name is going to be deleted, so any dropcatcher might catch it. Unless the current holder decides to redeem it (going to cost at least $80 I think) but that seldom happens.
