Company increases stable of registrars going after dropping domains.
The company behind expired domain name catching service DropCatch.com has adding 300 more accredited registrars to its arsenal, and now has a whopping 752 registrars. This is according to ICANN’s public list of accredited registrars.
DropCatch.com, which is owned by the same people behind HugeDomains and NameBright, is a traditional expired domain service that goes after domain names when they fully delete after pending delete. Winning expiring domain names this way depends on good timing and, frankly, the “fire power” of multiple registrars to ping the registry.
I can only imagine that DropCatch ran the numbers and determined that creating 300 more registrar accreditations would give it a substantial leg up in the expired domain name business.
DropCatch’s standard backorder rate is $59, subject to an auction if there’s more than one person who backorders the domain. It offers discounted dropcatching as low as $15 per name.
