    There is a domain in my market place that is set to expire in the next 2 weeks.

    What tools are used to research, value and secure domains such domains?

    Should I be considering any particular strategy for back order (suck as: waiting the day of expiration)?

    Any links of info would be great!

    For drop catching there are a lot of different services out there that will snatch up a domain as soon as it is available but you may want to employ the services of multiple of these services as it increases your chances of getting it before someone else. If you "need" the domain you may want to go this route. I don't think there is 1 perfect drop catcher as they all have varying levels of resources at their disposal for snatching domains.

    I'll look into your DHG Pro. Sounds cool!.

    At one time I read (I forget where) one of the drop catching / backorder services far outweighed the others - I can't find the article anymore. Would you happen to know which one?

    The most powerful backorder services are Snapnames, Dropcatch, Pheenix.

    Does anyone know if I should back order the domain BEFORE it expires, after it expires and is in the 'grace' period or wait until the end of the grace period is near?

    domainsrforever - they let you sort by DA

    I'd start there... (I'm not affiliated in any way)

    I recommend you look over DesktopCatcher for attempting to drop catch yourself. If you're looking for highly competitive domains then a backorder might be what you need. DropCatch, NameJet and SnapNames all offer those services.

    Of course you backorder on the actual drop day. Or a couple days before. Every day drop list for 4 days ahead is published.
