I have been researching a lot about this lately. I've even emailed companies and learned some valuable things. I am not looking for .com, .net etc., I have an alternative market in mind. A market with less competition but with value. Those who have built or used bots which can catch domains through registrars' API, I'd really like to hear some experiences. How many calls per second do you get? I hear it's usually about 1 call per 1 second which is not good, I don't think. Know of registrars which provide more calls? Any tips? I've also tried scraping how fast my competition catches the names in a TLD I'm watching closely but no luck. I've also tried asking but no luck. Anyone have any ideas on finding out this info? Thanks.
