    Hi,

    How do I grab about to "expiring domains" that I searched thru registercompass.com?
    I'm not talking about expired or auction domains.

    Do I have to wait until it expires and then register at godaddy or namecheap etc...?

    Your help is much appreciated.

    Hi godang,

    Chances are you are not going to be able to snag it at a good price until it has properly expired.

    I can't comment directly on your method, but since there have been no replies I figure I can let you know what I do:

    create an account at ExpiredDomains (google it), login, and then find the filter box. I click "Last 24 hours" in the first tab, select "Only available domains" and on the third screen I select SEO Kicks 10 min domain pop (it has 10 linking domains minimum)

    I then run the result through a program I wrote that gets up to 10 back links from SEO kicks, goes to the page, checks if the link still exists, checks how many other outgoing links there are (is it just blogspam) and then gives each domain a quality score. Picked up a domain yesterday with good keywords and in-article mentions from huffington post.

    Good luck

    Hey OP,

    As rknell mentioned above, the best tool to find expired domains is
    www.expireddomains.net and you can narrow down your results using the various filters they have to fit your needs!


    Cheers!

    I download the entire expireddomains.net list, then I run it through a magical little thing that shows me a bunch of data(I'm not sharing that one ;) ) - then I get some candidates.

    I then look at a handful of candidates by hand, checking some important details like what content it had in the past, if it was banned or shows up in any DNS spam black lists and .so on.

    Yeah expireddomains is what you should be spending time on, however, you have to do several checks and you may also not get domains that you see advertised as available.

    thanks all for the info.

    However, I'm not talking about choosing at good expiring domains. I found the good domains that will expiring in few days or less.

    What I want to know is how do I grab that?
    Do I get it right after expires? when expires is it open to public to register at Godaddy or Namecheap?

    Whatever expired domains that I want to buy is already grab by someone else and I want to know how they able to grab it as soon as it expires... this is what I want to know.

    Look around in topic "drop catching". When a domain become available, you and anybody else can register it. Now, there will be high interest for the good ones, because you won't be the only one checking those lists for good domains. In order to get them, you have to be the first one trying to register them right after they become available. You can do this with either a so called drop cather software, or by using a drop catching service from a company like godaddy (they are one of the cheapest ones, cost about 20$).

    Ahh, I have been trying to find the term for the software besides "backorder"!

    Surely someone has written something that will do this automagically instead of having to shell $20/domain?

    when you guys register an expired domain are u hiding your whois info?

    are u using seo hosting for your expired domains?

    I've experimented with drop catching software and it doesn't work very well. You are going to get beat out drop catching by Snap and Namejet because they have better programs so if you are really interested in the domain and it is high quality I would use them because of the competition. Honestly, I moved away from the auctions because the pricing became too high and built my own crawler so I now find more domains than I need with excellent PA and DA.

    There is nothing wrong with the software, it's just about probability. If you have one account at a register, you can have X amount of tries / second. The more accounts you have, the more tries, thus the more chance you get. Snap and Namejet have a lots of "accounts", that's how they multiply their chances. It's like a scale of 1 to 100. You have one, they have 100. You still stand a chance, just a small one.
    Although, not every domain is backordered by someone at Namejet, so you need to focus on the ones others probable looked over for some reason.

    I suggest you to deeply look aroung in this topic before you get into this. If you want to do this properly, it's a bit more complicated that what I could quickly explain here. In short, you will want to make them look like not yours in any way.
    Meaning, use proxies, whois protection, different hosting, different IPs, different CMS etc.. You can find good guides about this.

    Software is available, domain registrars with API support are there, but you will still be beaten by the big ones, should they go for the same domain. Simple because they have more accounts at registrars, so they have more chance. You can have more accounts too, but than you will need more VPS, more licence for the catching software etc.. so, the bigger you scale it up, the more chance you will have, the more cost it will take. Simple math :)
