It’s hard keeping up with the never ending stream of expiring domain name listings. Every day, hundreds of thousands of domains are in play. If you take a break or have an appointment, you could easily skip doing the research you need to find the best domains every day.
To solve that, and generally, to just make life easier for domain investors everywhere, we’ve added a new feature – saved searches.
With a saved search set up, you’ll receive an email every morning at 2AM EST, with any listings that match the search criteria, that will expire within the next 24 hours.
Here are some great features of the expiring domain names saved search system:
1. Saved searches can work across all of our major databases of expiring domain names – GoDaddy, NameJet, SnapNames, and Pending Delete listings. This fact alone makes using saved searches a huge time saver. Instead of conducting the same search on 4 different pages each day, you can just review a single email that contains all of the listings.
2. All of the existing filters work for saved search filters. This means you can do keyword searches (for example ‘baseball’), or you can search on the properties of names, such as number of words, high appraisal value, number of characters, or dscore.
3. There’s no limit on the number of saved searches you can set up. If you need 100 saved searches, to monitor specific keywords, then go ahead and set them up.
4. Saved searches are easy to cancel. If you find a saved search is consistently not producing good results, you can cancel it with a single click. You can also cancel all of your saved search emails with a just a couple clicks.
Saved search emails are sent daily at 2am EST. That should give anyone ample time to view the email, and make a decision on the names, prior to those names requiring an action. The first names to require action each day, are GoDaddy expiring domains listings, where listings begin to expire daily around noon EST daily. Pending Delete names being to be dropped daily around 2pm EST. So, by sending the emails at 2am, it gives about 10 to 12 hours advanced warning before any action is required.
Saved searches are different from email alerts on Generic Domain Finder. Email alerts are a daily email of domains that a user has explicitly added to a watch list by clicking the email icon next to the domain name. Email alerts are good in case you see a name that you like, and want to be reminded about it on the day that the listing expires. On the other hand, saved searches are good for discovering names that are expiring each day.
Hopefully saved searches will be a useful feature. In case anyone has any feedback, feel free to send an email message through the contact form.
