My first question is 123 reg and Exchange 2003 configuration? Many thanks for any comment. Second question of mine... Except my A list that I track on snapnames I have a B list of a few hundred names that I'm checking manually daily. These are names in pending delete or redemption period status..

Everyday I find out that one or two of them have become available. Then I decide to register it or not. The problem is, me doing daily availability checks is not good enough. Also it is not easy..

I'm looking for a solution that checks the domains more frequently, maybe every 6 hours and then registers them. It could be a php script that works with api codes that I can use with my moniker account. Also it could be a registrar that offeres this service..

I want to register the domains for reg fee. I'm not happy with godaddy's prices. These are domains that I'm not desperate for but would register for reg fee. Also I don't know if 123 reg would work the way I describe..

How does godaddy's backordering work for a HostGator that is on another registrar and was not snapped by snapcatchers but becames avaiable naturally?.

Any suggestions are welcome...

That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I got an decent answer. You should email the people at 123 reg as they probably could assist you..

Well, it's $130 for 12 months. So the more you use it, the cheaper it is. If you get 130 domains from the software over a 12 month period, your essentially paying a $1 to catch each domain...

If you don't want to pay, I guess you could always write your own program/script to interact with the Enom/Moniker API...

OT: Their free tasting service is very nice, however they easily max out their available funds at Enom, allowing only around 1,500 domains to be tasted at a time..

"We are in the process of teaming up with a registrar to offer each of our users the ability to taste up to 1,000 domains, 100% free. This partnership should be completed sometime MID-LATE June (sorry for the delay).".

Any news on this?..

No News on the tasting, however, the auto-registering and tasting are two different services. Auto-reg can doesn't have a budget limit like tasting does, as far as I know. You can monitor up to 200 domains I believe, and each one of those can be backordered...

$7.77 is a good price. This looks like a newly added service to premiumdrops. I might give this a try and see how it works. I should have somewhere an enom acount..

If you have a HostGator at enom is there an easy way to transfer it to namecheap or do you just follow the normal way?..

Comment #6

NameCheap uses their own database, so you'll need to transfer it as you normally would...

Thank you asianinvasion for your answer..

I'm trying premiumdrops now. They allow 100 domains (only com or net) to monitor and you can set to auto-register. The only problem is I couldn't figure out how it works..

Reg-fee, do you know how payment works for auto-register over premiumdrops? Is it my CC on file at enom that is charged or do I need to enter a CC to premiumdrops?.


Nevermind. Found the answer. You need to provide CC info to premiumdrops. I'm not comfortable with this. What if the CC info gets stolen? The page is a http page and not https. I wish it worked differently.

At namecheap you can add funds to your account via paypal. Then you spend them as you need. This is the best way I have ever seen...

I'm sure if you suggested some sort of pre-funding option to Luc (the creator of PD) he'd take it into consideration. He's good at implementing user requests/suggestions..

Regarding the lack of https, I find that odd that Luc didn't make this more secure. I'll email him about that...

Comment #9

I have send him an email suggesting an adding funds feature. I have also send him a pm pointing him to this thread...
