Dropping.ca Enters the TBR Market

October 27, 2009 · Print This Article

If you invest in .ca domains, then you know that one of the best ways of obtaining quality domains at reasonable prices is through the TBR (to be released).  Every week on Wednesday at 2.00 p.m. CIRA releases domains that have expired and not been renewed by the end their 30 day suspension period.  Among the dropping domains are usually many gems.

I am proud to announce that my company, in partnership with the renowned Hubbard Media of DropSystem fame, has entered the TBR market by launching Dropping.ca.  What Dropping.ca does is simple – we catch dropping .ca domains – hence our name!

As expert domainers all know, your best bet when trying to obtain a TBR domain is to backorder it from as many places as possible – as you can’t know in advance who will obtain it.  I encourage you to give Dropping.ca a try and backorder the TBR names you are interested in with us.

At Dropping.ca, we provide high-touch service, combined with a simple, easy to use interface.  We are happy to help you every step of the way, and you can be assured that all your questions will be quickly answered.  We also transfer your domains to you right after payment – we don’t hang on to them and collect your parking profits while you watch your expired domains lose their rankings in the search engines.

The costs are modest – there is a minimum charge of $60 Canadian (+GST) for a domain.  Our services are no win, no fee – so you only pay for the domains we catch on your behalf.  We require a $60 bond payment as security when you set up an account.  However, if I know you, please feel free to contact me through my blog and I’ll be happy to set up a personalized coupon code for you to waive this bond.  If more than one person backorders a domain, then it goes to auction.  Given that we are the new kid on the block, you can rest assured that our auctions are not as competitive as the established players and there are lots of good deals to be had.

So, what are you waiting for?  It’s easy to get started.  Head on over to Dropping.ca and sign up.

    Cat_Registrar.html where registers only have access to register as new.

    Good luck with your new site Dropping.ca. I’ve seen you catch names in previous drops so I know you can do it!

    This is a pretty good service, but only for someone who doesn’t have any free time for trying to grab the domain himself. I just successfully grabbed the domain, dealsoftheday.ca, a couple of days ago, after waiting for it for 3 months. I had just set a reminder on my Windows calendar, and on Wednesday, right after it was scheduled to be release, I quickly purchased it. It was pretty easy, but maybe I was just lucky. I think it’s still quite reasonable at $60 for someone who has a busy lifestyle.

    Sibername has introduced changes in their TBR system. First, they have raised the minimum bid from $15 to $25. While I’m sure domainers will complain about the increase in price (after all, who wants to pay more?), I believe that this is a good step. My guess is that Sibername was wasting a lot of resources trying to catch dropping domains that would only sell for $15, when these resources could have been reallocated to catching higher value domains. For $15, they are better off selling new registrations than TBR domains.

    I thought that every Wednesday a TBR or ‘To Be Released’ list of domains would drop and be up for grabs. Although, this is partially true the names can’t be hand registered that Wedneday. The names on the TBR list have to be ordered through a registered company that participates in the TBR process. It’s somewhat similar to backordering domains in other TLD’s. As an example, I can place an order at Pool.com for egvu.ca and if there are other bidders and pool.com gets the name all previous bidders will enter an auction for the domain. There are some big differences on how these companies are able to catch .ca domains compared to drop catching gTLD’s, but, I won’t go into detail there for this post.

    Investors in Canadian (.ca) domains know that the most cost effective method of obtaining valuable domains at low prices is via the TBR (to be released) list. Each week on Wednesday at 2.00 p.m. CIRA releases domains that are in expiry status and have not been renewed by the end of the 30 day suspension period. There are treasures in this list of dropping domains!
