    Hello, I made a backorder today but the service wasn't able to grab the domain.
    I take a look at the whois and I notice the domain was owned by a guy with his own contacts
    Probably this guy made a platform by his own and was able to grab this domain before any public service like this... Is it possible?

    Shouldn't be impossible. You just need to record it's expiry date and have a bot that will try to register the domain milliseconds after it is expired.. the script has to be very precise and the payment has to be done before (store credit? Autorized credit card?).. or you are never gonna make it. I am not sure but a registrar might already have an api for registering domains.

    It's a lot harder than this sorry. The reason SnapNames and NameJet get the large majority of domains is they have partnerships with a large pool of registrars. Each registrar has access to re-register a domain, they get so many "credits" to hammer the Verisign drop to dropcatch the domain. SnapNames and NameJet have pooled all the "Credits" from each partnering registrar to be able to hammer the drop more than anyone else.

    This all takes place before the public can touch them.

    You want to see where the domain is registered and if that registrar is a partner with SN & NJ and if it's already got backorders on it.

    Technically yes you can, however it would be a waste of time. There are companies (as mentioned above) that have an unfair advantage when it comes to catching dropping domains.
