Chasing Drops & I Caught 100% Of My Wish List

Today I chased 2 domains & I snagged them both! I haven’t been chasing much these past few days, but expect to kick it up a notch this week. I also wanted to put the lists at dnmeter.com to the test & make sure the accuracy is there for all you fellow drop catchers.

So far so good. The domains I was chasing were:

Snuffies.com & Afflick.com

I didn’t do any research on these & simply eye balled them out from the dnmeter list. I thought oh cool, Snuffies can be a brandable domain. First came to mind that this name qualifies as a brandable for a product or establishment. So I added it to my drop catcher. I like Afflick and thought of Surname. Not like Ben Affleck – no typo intended – but last names are hard to grab. Perhaps the spelling Afflick isn’t as popular, but I added it anyways.

I didn’t think I stood much of a chance. I noted the drop times. Snuffies was dropping around 1:41pm & Afflick around 2:16pm. So I waited & watched. Sure enough 1:42pm rolls by & I get the Dynadot email that the order has finished & I now own Snuffies.com

I waited over 30 minutes & decided to also hand chase Afflick.com. As it’s drop time was getting closer, so were my refresh intervals. Finally around 2:22pm, the domain dropped. I tried regging it by hand, but got beat. I thought for sure GoDaddy or Snap grabbed it, but to my surprise, my own Dynadot API I was running on the side caught it for me.

So It was a good day drop catching for me. I hope yours was too.

    Sincere congratulations on getting the names you targeted. Anyone who has a list of domains they want can identify with your glee.

    Specific to the two names you mentioned, Snuffies and Afflick:

    Perhaps I’m a bit out of the loop, but is there much of a market for brandable names these days?

    Best wishes-

    “Snuffies” to me is brandable for one of three things. Either some type of fabric softener sheet, a swiffer duster like dust bunny catcher or an assisted suicide clinic that snuffs people.

    Congratulations, you must be pleased that you got them without having to use the services like snapnames etc. The Dynadot API is that something you did yourself or a service provided by Dynadot?

    Regards,
