There are some programs out there which will watch the deletion sites which have the lists of expired domains then search for them on the engines.

I found this one, you enter a keyword and it searches a few search engines and finds which ones of the results are expired.


Aaron's All Search Engine Expired Domain Finder
Requirements:
- Perl 5
- CGI-BIN Access
- Mod_Rewrite ability on server

Anyone have tried this program or have heard anything about it? Was searching cgi-resources and ran into it so im looking for second and third opinions.

nope, never seen it. Costs money so it would be nice if they showed a sample. I can't really trust a program that cost's money and no one knows anything about it.

I would also fear using it because some registrars would ban your IP address if it saw a program making that many requests of their whois data.

Personally I like the free, manual, old-fashioned method :) Have not tried that one Eliteweb.
