Expired domain hunting: daily or less frequently?

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 05/22/2024 - 16:42

Searching every day is a bigger commitment but can pay dividends. I typically search for and backorder domain names every five days. This saves me time because I search in batches rather than spend time on it every day. My five-day window is for a reason: Pending Delete status is five days, so this lets […]

Domain Name Wire - Tue, 05/21/2024 - 17:25
