With the recent integration of SnapNames and NameJet for deleting inventory, SnapNames is utilizing more resources to catch .cc and .tv names. This recent move is another in a series to cement SnapNames’s place as the top drop-catching service in the industry.
Although the fulfillment of backorders placed on SnapNames for .cc and .tv domains has always been possible, the rates of acquisition were low compared to other extensions. Now SnapNames has dedicated a substantial amount of resources to these extensions, and one can expect a fulfillment rate on par with the rest of the deleting inventory.
The .cc domain extension is technically the ccTLD for the Cocos Islands off the coast of Australia, but it did not come with resident restrictions for registration. It has become a favored extension due to its short and memorable alliteration, giving it global recognition and usability.
.tv domains were originally for Pacific islands of Tuvalu but quickly caught on due to its abbreviation of all things television. Websites with video content have been adopting the extension with great success, along with websites that offer streaming services, like MLB.tv.
SnapNames has patented drop-catching technology and has been acquiring names on the Drop since 2001. Recently, NameJet and SnapNames joined forces and SnapNames started powering the drop on NameJet, giving customers a better chance at acquiring backordered deleting names, and being able to use their platform of choice with an integrated auction platform.
