What is Dropcatching or Backordering?
Dropcatching or back ordering is a way to acquire a domain name that is already registered by someone else. When the current owner of a domain name does not renew the name's registration it goes into a reclamation period of approximately 3 months, this allows the current owner to stake their claim on a domain name before it is released back to the public for general registration by anyone.
Our service allows you to try and catch these names the split-second they become available to the public, we do this by querying the Nominet whois for the domain name and the second it becomes available, we send the register command to the registry.
If we catch the domain name, the person with the highest bid on the name will be the owner of the new name.
There are no charges for our service, unless we register a domain name you have chosen to place a bid on and we have successfully caught the domain name for you.
