Snatcher 2 Feature Listing
SNATCHER 2.4.4 – The Auto-updating, Multi-Registrar, API and non-API Dropcatcher
Snatcher was created by N3TWORK.com, the expired domain name specializing software company who brought you Sitespotter and Sitespotter Mobile – the iPhone App Store’s first (and free) aftermarket domaining app. Then we brought you Snatcher, Desktop Snatcher for Windows and Mac, and several free utilities for examining the metrics of expiring domains in bulk amounts. With Sitespotter entering its 4th year and Snatcher nearing it’s second birthday, we’re proud to announced that we’re raising the bar on aftermarket domain name software yet again. Snatcher 2 combines that power of Sitespotter with newly re-written and unparalleled dropcatching speed and power. We’ve tried to keep things as simple as the previous release, but we’ve added a few new user-friendly features.
Multi-Registrar API Support
Whereas other drop-catching software only work with one registrar, requiring you to purchase new software for each account, with tokenized URL’s the new Snatcher 2 is compatible with any API registrar, including Fabulous, Dyndadot, or any service supporting custom REST-based API registration calls. We currently have customized Dynadot API support built-in to Snatcher, and as you probably know, Dynadot released their free (no minimum spending limit) API in January of 2012. We also have customized Fabulous support built right in. We are continuing to add APIs as the registrars grant access, so stay tuned as more will be frequently added.
Queue Unlimited Domains for Snatching
Load up the domain drop box with as many domains as you want – Snatcher has no limit on the amount of domains in your queue. Be careful though, the more domains you are snatching simultaneously, the less bandwidth you have allotted per domain, so it is probable you will get slower speeds this way. With more competitive domains it is advisable that you keep only one in the Drop Box at a time.
International Domain Name Dropcatching
Snatcher 2 now supports IDN dropcatching. However, you must use the Dynadot API as your registrar and your desired domain must be converted from Unicode to Punycode. Verisign Has created an online tool for doing just this. » Versign IDN Conversion Tool *Your WHOIS Gateway within Snatcher must also be set to use N3TWORK.com as opposed to the default Verisign connection.
Perform Domain WHOIS Queries & Obtain Vital Metrics From Within Snatcher
Snatcher’s in-application AJAX-based WHOIS lookup system will look-up domains instantly and output the raw WHOIS data inside the console for you. This simple tool requires no refreshing of the browser, is extremely unobtrusive, and will also reveal the drop date of pending delete domains.
Featuring Sitespotter Integration
Sitespotter technology is integrated into the Snatcher application itself to allow you to sift through domains and lowering the need for you to even leave the application. Our ultimate goal is to have Snatcher be your one-stop shop for your aftermarket domaining needs. The updates will continue to come rapidly as they have been coming this month.
Fully Automated Update System
Snatcher features an amazing automated update system that will automatically notify you if a new release has gone public. If it has, your Snatcher console will display all of the new features of this version as well as a button to Update Now. Not only does the application seamlessly upgrade in just seconds, it saves your previous version in a backup directory and allows you to revert, or rollback to this version at any time!
Daily Downloadable Lists of Domains
Like always, we have our daily lists of downloadable pending Delete domain names available right off the toolbar. We store 5 days worth of future deleting domains lists, starting with the present day. Keep in mind these are the raw and unfiltered lists containing every TLD due for deletion that particular day, so they can be extremely large.
Snatcher Pop-up Technology
Snatcher 2 uses Snatcher’s familiar pop-up technology when Snatching domains. However, don’t let the look of it fool you. The code has been entirely streamlined and revamped from the bottom up. Snatcher is virtually bulletproof in its stability. It is also significantly faster (often as fast as 300ms between WHOIS requests), much more powerful and intuitive.
Sitespotter Platinum Subscription Service
We all know how long and monotonous the daily pending delete lists can be. With up to 150,000 TLDs dropping daily, its nearly impossible to scan the drop list without a filter. That’s exactly what Sitespotter does. Its first filtration system is obtaining only dictionary word or dictionary word combination based domains. This gets the list down to a very manageable portion.
Sitespotter Bulk Domain Metrics Scanning
From this list we can obtain various important metrics in bulk, such as pagerank, directory listings, backlinks, alexa and compete data, and more. Export your list as a PDF file or save it for later. This tool complements Snatcher perfectly and is available with your Snatcher purchase for a limited time only!
