The NameBay API Drop Catcher

The NameBay API Drop Catcher inside of DesktopCatcher makes for a great option when drop catching a variety of different domain extensions. It’s coded around the latest version of the NameBay API (v7.9) and we recommend all users setup an account with this ICANN accredited registrar and run them along with some of the others. DesktopCatcher will automatically run and try to register your desired domain names directly into your NameBay reseller account. Getting your account setup is pretty simple and resellers also have good pricing on a variety of different extensions. With minimum deposits at just 20Euro it’s worth setting NameBay up and drop catching more expired domains with them. If you need help setting up your NameBay reseller account then contact us and we’ll help!

NameBay Drop Catching Extensions


NameBay One-by-One Feature

This unique feature takes your list of COM/NET domains and arranges them into their exact drop order. DesktopCatcher will take your domains and check them to see which one will drop first, second..etc. Once in order, this thread will put all of its focus on just one domain at a time. So, rather than cycling through your entire list of domains, it only tries to register the first domain which is suppose to drop. Once that domain has dropped and been registered (by you or someone else), it will then move onto the second domain, and so on. This increases your odds of catching more COM/NET domains because all focus is being put on one domain at a time!

NameBay Drop Catcher Limits

The NameBay API is pretty good regarding limitations. They allow one domain registration attempt per second. DesktopCatcher will automatically attempt to register domains as quickly as possible.
