    so, you're grabbing domains with WHOIS? Good for you

    He wants a service that snap domains at the moment they expire.

    OP, I used Snapnames a couple of times but I am starting to think how they cant catch shit or they are keeping the best domains for them.
    I also noticed that one service (it was Enom if I remember correctly ) that snapped some really good ones for japanese clients. These Japanese guys are taking all the good ones, not sure how

    Godaddy will almost always get it if they already have the domain on their registrar. enom, and namejet are good for anything else. You only pay if they actually get it for you. So you can use some or all to increase your chances. It might go to auction if their are multiple bids on it.

    snapnames, enom & pool are the best ones. You can backorder on all three and hope one of them will catch it. You pay

    only if they are able to catch it.


    If the catcher is pool, then good luck! They will send you to an auction even if you are the only bidder. You are completely

    in the dark. You will have to send in a bid and only the 2 top bids move on. Perfectly designed just so you will bid high.

    Registrars hammer ICANN when a domain actually gets dropped they know pretty much the exact millisecond when it happens and use thousands of connections to get it. Your best bet is to backorder at as many registrars as possible in order to get into the auction. Go with all the big ones and not just SN otherwise you're only going to get 1/7th of the pie.

    Edit: and if you think they are keeping them that is really interesting I hope you write those domains down and track them because it will be interesting to see if that is true.

    For the really highly competitive and premium domains you should backorder them at places like NameJet and DropCatch..If you don't think allot of other people might be going after them you can use software like DesktopCatcher to catch yourself and save more money.
