    The complete question would be - what method / tool / webapp / software / site do you use, to specifically backorder / dropcatch the new gtld domains. I hope to get some response from fellow domainers who has been backordering ngtlds for a while. By new gtlds, I mean generic word type extensions like .design, .zone, .life etc.

    Recently, I have been thinking of trying to dropcatch few such domains. I mostly just use expireddomains.net to research domains to backorder. I noticed that almost every other ngtld pending-delete domains listed there is linked to hexonet.com. I also know that a few people have been using API based softwares. So, here are my few specific questions.
    1. Do you think using an API based software would be an ideal solution. Have you been able to catch some decent to great names by using such software. What software do you use and how would you rate its performance in the scale of 1 to 10. I mean, how many domains do you think it is able to catch out of 10 ?
    2. How is the dropcatch performance of hexnet.com in the scale of 1 to 10.
    3. What other alternatives do you suggest apart from hexonet ?
    I hope my questions are clear enough let me know if you thin otherwise.
    I would really appreciate any additional tips or advices.
    Thank you.

    Yeah I wish someone mentioned this. Names.Plus was dropcatching these new gTLDs for a while, but for some reason they closed their service. :(

    api all the way. I use several api's to catch ngtlds and I'm having decent luck. I lose often but also win enough to keep adding good names consistently. If you get good enough at using your own api's you can beat hexonet. Dynadot has a really good api for ngtlds.

    for backordering I suggest west.xyz. Its a Chinese based company, success rate/prices are good. The only thing that kinda gets frustrating is the English interpretation leaves a bit to be desired.

    Do you think a software such as DesktopCatcher would do the job?

    ^ It would probably work well as long as it supports the extensions you're going for. But I'm not too familiar with that software.

    I just use Chrome with an auto refresh extension for free. (Auto Refresh Plus). You can even set it up to go at a certain time. Then I have another Chrome Extension that closes the browser for me like 5 minutes later so I don't continue needlessly refreshing. I like free, and it seems to be working pretty well.
