snapping / catching

snapping: german "schnappen", catching: german "fangen"

Snapping or catching in this context means the process while the RGP-domains will be registered again after expiring of the period of restriction.

By the snapping it's a matter of being the quickest one. The process lasts only some seconds and in case of some good domains several drop catchers could try to catch the domain.

Only the one who is signed in at the DENIC as an registrar is able to snap.

On nicsell you purchase exactly this kind of service by auction, meaning that we will try to catch (register) domains for you.
