I'm currently trying to grab expiring domains without the use of drop catching services such as namejet, snapnames, pool and so on. The domains are somewhat valuable to me but not enough to bid 69$ on the popular drop catching services. Yet for some reason these domains often times get registered on the expiring date but NOT by the popular drop catching services (I check to see if there are any bids before the limit date/time). So it seems some unknown service or individual is grabbing them before I can.. So my question is : is there any way I can compete with this ? using my own custom programs for drop catching? I don't know anything about that so if you could give me a hint in the right direction for this that would be awesome. tyvm!
