    Pros: 

    The design is clean

    Cons: 

    The purpose is discutable

    Interesting but why monitoring if at the end you cannot get the domain?

    Laurent Pellegrino has used this product for one day.

    Pros: 

    Affordable, tracking a lot domain names, good TLD support.

    Cons: 

    Remains to be seen how accurate it is (I'll know in a few months)

    I like the simple user interface. Price beats the usual "dropcatch" price, just to find out that I won't get the domain name.

    Goran Duškić has used this product for one week.

Hey. Sounds nice! However, I was told by a domain name expert that if you want to get a domain that’s currently dormant you have to register with “snapnames” and/or “dropcatch”. Otherwise you’ll not be able to get an expiring domain even if you’re notified about it. The ”notification” might already be too late. Anyways, I’m not an expert in this field and I’m only repeating what I’ve heard. Happy to be proven wrong by someone with more knowledge.😀

@guidoj You are absolutely right, for some domains you do need to pay a dropcatching fee if you want a chance to get it. But also, have you checked the prices, and their success rate? In essence, it is too expensive, and doesn't guarantee success. Further more, there is no "secondary option". I once backordered at GoDaddy, a domain name that was registered with GoDaddy, and someone from Dropcatch ended up getting it. How is that fair? For example, if you would casually like to know if some domain name will become available so that you can get it at base price, this is the tool for that. And there are still thousands of domains every day that do expire without anyone catching them! This tool doesn't compete with big dropcatching services like GoDaddy, Dropcatch, Snapnames, etc. This tool will help you catch domain names that are going to expire, without you having to keep checking them manually.

Congrats on the launch @benjam1n :) What features are you planning on adding next?

@amrith Thanks man! Well, I have to validate the basics first, but here are some ideas: * Full whois alerting - nameserver, transfer prohibited, registrar/registrant/admin/tech contacts (this is more of a security feature) * Domain ownership verification (so you can get different notifications and suggestions, eg. suggesting a backordering on a domain that you own doesn't really make sense) * Slack/Telegram notifications
