As many of you know, DropCatch.com will catch a domain that has been backordered, and opens the auction open to the public. Great for them, terrible for being a domainer. There was an auction for a name, which I have a steady buyer for in that niche. Max I have ever paid for a name in that niche was $150, and I easily sold for $1k+. There was only myself and another domainer that placed a pre order. Over the next 3 days four more bidders came to the table, and the auction quickly went from the initial backorder price to well over $700 USD. The only bidders were myself, and a 3rd party who did not backorder the domain, but who came along in the final 36 hours. The profit margin & risk no longer made sense to compete on the name, so I was out. If this is the evolution of dropcatching, you better get your names where you can and hold on tight. I never thought I would find myself saying, "I wish NameJet caught that one." My only consolation is that I cost another party hundreds of dollars, that went to DropCatch of course... Good for DropCatch, bad for us all. Just something to consider when ordering names. What are your thoughts?
