We provide everything you need to begin catching expired domain names. Full control from a simple to use web interface. Mobile friendly. No coding required.
Below are just some of the included features to give you complete control of your chasing quota, caught domains and notifications.
Define your chasing queue and priorities, allowing to cycle through domains, or chase in priority order until each domain has dropped. Additionally, specify DAC request rates for individual domains.
Set a default schedule, and configure additional schedules for an exact date or specific weekdays. Full reporting on what quota you've used and when.
View the queries being sent in real time, so you can see exactly how your quota is being utilised.
Drill down in to historic usage and download full logs from the last 7 days.
See the outcome of all EPP requests, including the server response code and transaction ID. If EPP reports an issue with your Nominet account, we'll alert you of this immediately.
Add your domain names and they'll be entered in to the correct drop day automatically and checked frequently for renewal and pre-drop deletion. Any domains that fail to drop will continue to be chased regularly.
Configure a ruleset depending on the outcome of the drop. Rules include adding name servers to caught domains, performing a tag change, sending webhooks to endpoints, and send an SMS with the outcome.
A comprehensive set of tools to create, delete, renew, transfer and modify domains on your tag, enabling you to quickly make changes to a domain without logging in to Nominet's Web Domain Manager.
View insights in to your chasing history, quota usage and out of sequence drops. On failure, determine which tags are catching domains you chase, and be notified of those instant tag changes.
Your account will use a server and IP address provisioned specifically for you. It won't be shared with anyone else.

Absolutely. Work has already begun to integrate this new process in to dropcatching.co.uk and it will be ready before the production release on 13th September 2022.
Absolutely not. Each user has their own server, dedicated to their account. It cannot be accessed by any other user. You choose what to chase and when. We log all quota usage in real time. These logs can be viewed and downloaded at any time from your control panel, and from any day in the last 7 days.
The day of the month you create your account will become your billing day and all invoices will be generated on this day each month. If you create your account after 28th of the month, your billing day will be 28th each month. Your card is charged 24 hours after your invoice is generated.
An invoice will automatically be generated on your billing day each month. You can make a manual payment within 24 hours, otherwise your stored card will automatically be charged 24 hours after an invoice has been generated.
