Welcome To The Domain Afterlife.

Everyday, there are hundreds of thousands domains expiring. These domains generally expire because their owners simply didn’t renew the domain at it’s registrar. There are many reasons why this can heppen, most common are: “They forgot to pay the domain bill”, “They lost interest in the domain”, “They own so many domains, some slipped under the radar” I can go on & on…

Well the good news is that you’re in luck. I don’t care what anyone tells you the fact is that there is a lot of money to be made in expired domains. Whether it be flipping the drops you catch, monetizing from the traffic or simply build on your domains with web development.

In this website, I will share with you many years experience of catching domains. I chase domains everyday & have been for over four years now. I consider myself one of the best drop catchers out there. I catch domains for myself only. I have developed some new tools that will help you catch domains like I do. My main goal is to share with you the same tools I sucessfully use to grab domains the second they drop.

Here you’ll find lists of expiring domains in an easy to use format. Lists that contain valuable domain drops & the help to secure the names you want.

But it doesn’t stop there. I recommend you take a look at the domain auction activity. Registrars like GoDaddy, Afternic & others auction off their domains before they expire. If a domain gets a bid, then it is not allowed to drop because the registrar will transfer the domain to the highest bidder before it hits pending delete.

The famous pending delete stage is very tricky. Most newbies don’t take into consideration that a lot of the daily drops are actually domains that are being tasted. So it is easy for you to monitor the tasted domains & grab a gem!

Although I consider myself one of the best drop catchers, I cannot compete against snapnames, pool or namejet. I also have a hard time against GoDaddy backorders & domain tasters like Blue Razor & Enom.

As a community, we need to educate ourselves about the domain afterlife. The more  domainers to understand the process – means we can stop paying high backorder fees & catch some quality drops on our own too.

I hope you enjoy your visit & make sure to click the links on the blogroll. There’s a lot of useful information & tools that I feel you’ll enjoy.

    Hi Dan,

    Im curious, why do companies like Namejet and Snapnames have an advantage over you? Is it they have some software that helps or not? Sorry Im not too clear yet on the process that goes on there.

    Hi Anthony,

    Companies like Namejet & Snapnames have hundreds of domain registrars they own and partner up with. This allows them to send massive amounts of domain registration attempts at the same time.

    While I do get lucky often, I cannot compete with the thousands of requests sent for the valuable domains. This is how they are able to secure domains like: LLL.COM’s that drop. They will use everything in their power to snap a valuable drop.

    These valuable domains then go to auction since more than one person backordered it. This is what’s keeping these backorder companies in business.

    I concentrate on medium domains. The ones that are worth substantially, but end slipping under the radar & drop daily. While some may have a backorder or two – the backorder houses generally go after domains with 2+ backorders a lot harder than the domains with 0 or 1 backorder.

    Hope that helps.

    Dan,

    I noticed you discontinued your Drop Club memberships a while ago.
    Are you providing any type of coaching or education?

    Thanks!

    Hi Wayne,

    I discontinued the drop club memberships because of lack of interest. I usually provide free help to domainers who have specific questions. I was thinking about making tutorials & offer coachin sessions, but I haven’t gotten around to it. I’d be happy to help with any questions you have or provide coaching if you’d like.

    Dan
