    Anybody knows where to get a huge list of expired / deleted domain list?

    I know expireddomains dot net is a good place for these, there's almost over 3 million domains showing up, but you cannot actually scrape / download all the data there. Any good ideas?

    Thanks a lot.

    For GoDaddy Auctions, you can use the tools found here and then scrape, parse, etc. from their expired inventory (tonne of expiring and expired names there):

    https://auctions.godaddy.com/trpTools.aspx

    I'm pretty sure sedo and the other "big" auction houses have similar options.

    Thanks mate, but how do I get to use those tools? Simply register a godaddy auction account?

    And I always wonder where do expireddomains dot net get their list especially those deleted domains list, there are over 3 million. Anybody knows?

    I remember few years ago I was using Domain Research Tool, awesome app able to download many different types of lists (.net .com .org) from several registrars and scan them for important metrics(age, PR, backlinks, alexa...)
    It was not free though, I paid maybe $200 for that, but totally worth the price.

    I've been buying dropping domains for quite some time now and if you are ready to pay a small monthly fee I recommend you to check out premiumdrops.com. It provides you with dropping/dropped domain lists, various auction lists etc. bundled with all kinds of data like PR, search volumes, CPC, age, Alexa and so on.

    They have an online tool which can be used to analyze domain data but you can also export data to various formats. I always exporte next day's dropping domain list to csv file and import it into my custom built program for further analyzing (checking for dictionary domains, short domains, CCC, LLL etc.)

    All the domain data they use comes from domainplex.com.

    There are several different services that mine data from various auction sites (tdnam, sedo, ) and let you search across all that mined data. I guess the question I wasn't 100% clear on is whether you are looking to scrape or parse auction listings from those various auctions and manipulate them yourself, or whether you are looking for a recommendation for a service.

    I've done both, and the tradeoff is pretty simple:

    a single service is "easier" but costs more (and pricing is all over the place; years ago freshdrop was *the* site, but awhile ago they jacked their prices way up)

    scraping and having access to the raw data is "harder" (but lower cost and you have a bit more control)

    There are many paid services (like domainstrue.com and the ones listed above) that you could use to obtain such lists. It's totally worth the price.

    Hey, after you guys find these great domains that are dropping, how do you try to get it? Do you use some paid service like snapname to try to get it? Or just try to do it manually? Lets say if it's like a PR4 or above, they usually not available right away when I check.

    If it's a good com domain I can be sure that someone else is trying to get it so I won't even think of manual registration (you can't beat those domain dropcatcher services)..

    I learnt it the hard way two years ago when I found a 100% perfect com domain for my business and I really really wanted to have it. I was foolish and wanted to save some money by trying to register the domain by hand. I just kept refreshing GoDaddy's domain search feature with that domain and when it became available I instantly registered it. A few minutes later I got a mail from GoDaddy: Failed Domain Name Registration Notice. I got my money back but didn't get the domain.

    So if you really want the domain and it's something many people would likely try to register you should use a dropcatching service!

    I am filtering through and checking PR on hundreds of thousands of expiring godaddy domains with scrapebox (which is taking a while). I can upload the list later this week after I sift through it.

    subsonic - which dropcatching services do you recommend?

    If you really want the domain name and can't afford to miss it, I suggest you to register at more than one dropcatching service. That way you'll make sure at least one of them catches the domain. I guess that most of the big players in the field let you backorder the domain for free so if they don't get it you don't have to pay anything. You only pay when they succesfully catch the domain for you!

    As far as I know pool.com is the best catcher when it comes to success % but it might be costly if there are other people interested in the domain.

    If you have anything else to ask about domains or domain drops don't be afraid to ask! I'm soon going to launch a huge project related to them so I'm working with domain stuff all the time! :)

    Edit: Here's a great list of reviewed domain drop catchers: http://www.dnforum.com/f284/

    I found a cool little service on WF, this guy checks expiring domains on godaddy and sends lists on email every few days. I like it especially because all domains are real, no fakes in the list. He's also sending other nice data such as PR, backlinks, domain age, expiration time.

    Anyway, I'm satisfied with the results and the price is really low.
