    hi
    there is some good name i would like to use a dropcatchers services to catch but i always have these weirds ideas on my head which i hope someone can clear a bit for me plz.

    if i register for a name but it happen the name is so sexy that the service decide instead of giving to me ,they rather keep it for themself , anything i can do to make them give it to me since it was originally booked by me ?

    i mean for instance ,you booked sex.co.uk and it happen the service catch it ,will they really give it to you ?

    thx in advance

    You mean...

    "is there a reputable / trustable drop catching service I can use that wont try to keep the domains I order."

    I expect that a few folks will be along shortly with their recommendations. See which one is mentioned most and go with that. Though normally you should use a couple to give yourself more of a chance, or at least buy lots of "blocks" from the provider you choose to enable a successful catch.

    TTFN,
    Dave

    If you're doing a .uk drop catch, then you'll need to specify a registrant and the name will be registered in this name, so it's then yours (as long as you pay the bills and don't loose it in a DRS)

    There is the potential that the catcher will catch it for themselves rather than for you, however if this was the case, then they'd get reported here and get lots of bad publicity.

    If in doubt, contact the catcher before booking and clarify their service. We catch for customers, the company and me personally, however, we work on 1st come 1st served, loosing a domain to a customer because we've not checked the lists before them is preferable to a negative thread here (or other domaining forums).

    caught.co.uk is a great service and honest.

    In fact, he caught business.co.uk the other day and let me keep it for £15!

    I guess you'll need to get in earlier or book the name with one of "the little guys"

    I'll be happy to take your booking. I don't know of a dropcatcher that cheats. If they did, they wouldn't last very long and would very soon be exposed here.
