Drop catching

A guide to our drop catching service

Drop catching is the pratice of registering a domain name within milliseconds of it becoming available after its current registration has lapsed, which is normally on the 92nd day after the domain has expired.

We provide a dropcatching and backordering service for .uk domain names.

Our drop catching software "Cylon" is hosted in multiple data centres within very close proximity to Nominet's registration servers.

Before you place a back order with us the domain must be in a suspended state. This is normally 60 days after the expiration date
