There's a domain in redemptation period which I want to register and waiting to be dropped.
As far as I know Enom, SnapNames and Pool are ICANN partners so their cathing dropped domains for backordering is better but their price is $$.
The domain is a local domain, not English and also a .com domain. But there's a .net tld domain with the same name has been already registered by one of the big local hosting firms. So I think they are watching the .com domain to register too.
Backordering is expensive so I'm considering backordering with <a cheaper service>. But:
Question 1: What about checking the domain manually every day, at the last days of redemptation period checking every 3-4 hours and trying to register it? What are the chances versus GoDaddy backordering?
Question 2: For example a domain dropped totally and returned to pool and backordered by <drop catcher> will register it in how much time? in seconds, minutes, hours? Generally of course, I guess it changes time to time.
Question 3: Same question with Enom, SnapNames and Pool. How much times takes for ICANN partners to register a dropped domain? Seconds, minutes or hours?
Question 4: So you know the case. What do you suggest?
