Spy on recently backordered domain names with new service

SnoopNames monitors last-minute domain name backorders. A new service called SnoopNames claims to enable you to spy on other peoples’ backorders in order to backorder potentially valuable domain names. The site monitors various expired domain sites to spot initial backorders placed on domains in the last 24 hours before the cut off. The idea is to let the “crowd” help you find domain names worth backordering. Of course, anyone who waits until the last day to place a backorder in order to not draw attention to a domain name probably won’t be a fan of this service. SnoopNames’ creator points out that larger domainers are already snooping on backorders with their own technology, and all of the data is public anyway. SnoopNames appears to be monetized via affiliate links.
