Discussion in 'Drop catching Domain Names' started by Katch!, Sep 15, 2019.
Have nothing loaded up today for myself, if anybody is looking to catch anything. Give me a PM
Out of interest what's the fee for a successful catch?
As we haven't launched our public facing catch service yet, we'll be taking successful catches at £35
Ben i thought you used hostedchasing?
Thanks and do you just take one booking per domain?
We've moved away from Hosted Chasing now, but do appreciate the opportunity Rob gave us and quite frankly if anybody does have membership at Nominet but isn't do much with it, that's a great way to get involved.
At present yes, there would be no auctions as there is no frontend service live yet.
Ahh right so you basically doing a clone of hosted chasing and offering the same service and auction when your frontend is live?
No, it will not be the same as anything else online, we're aiming to bring something different.
Book a name, catch a name, pay for a name. Pretty limited on what can be offered really.
Book a name, catch a name, don't pay for the name
To be fair, I think in the last 80 odd catches I've had one non payment.
Oh I was joking about it being given for free
1 out of 80 is better than I would have thought, I guess that number might depend if your clientele is a lot of new/one offs vs established users?
Yeah, I've got a pretty solid user base of regulars but do get businesses signing up for random names too, they're always the ones I'm suspect of
Well the thing is, there's always something different. It's about innovating new stuff. I'd also rather take card details beforehand and charge the card on successful catch, which is what we'll no doubt be doing to avoid non-payment. So that should weed out the people who book backorders willy-nilly.
In all honesty i think the dropcatching side of things will be a struggle for you, too many big players with microsecond precision.
And on top of the competition there is an awful lot to take into account and your code needs to be absolutely bang on point + servers need to have the resources to execute the code effectively and most importantly you need a reliable network
Even if he was on hosted chasing he could still offer a catch service if he wanted.
And as for this advice, its a god job this marshall person joined acorn with all their top advice.
Thanks "marshall", your advice has been duly noted.
Credit where credit is due, ill take it all, much appreciated... after all i know f**k all!!
Not sure what your intention was with this post?
Do you have any space for tomorrow?
Separate names with a comma.
