As the years go by it is becoming clear to everyone that domain names are becoming more and more complex. Individuals own and manage more domains than ever! There are more domain extensions (TLDs – Top Level Domains) than ever, and there are more domain registrars than ever. This is why we think Domainwatch is a great idea, and we have decided to implement it inside webmaster.ninja.
What is Domainwatch.me?
Our parent company WhoAPI Inc. was a sponsor of domainwatch.me project so we were keeping an eye on Benjamin’s (owner) progress. After a great Product Hunt launch (#2 product of the day), and after a lot of signups, Benjamin was struggling to find the business model for this service. After further findings, he decided to tweak the product, and build a new service. There was one problem, people that signed up wouldn’t get the service and support they signed up for.
We are writing this explanation because there’s a good chance you (dear reader) are one of them. So, without further delay, don’t worry, you can use domainwatch.me, and it will be completely free!
For those of you who are just finding this out, and are new to Domainwatch.me (announced as product of the week on Bitrix24) here’s how it works, and how it can help you.

DomainWatch makes it easy for you to monitor your own domains and the ones you want to acquire. We keep an eye on expiration dates, nameservers, registrar in charge and current status of the domain name. Why that information in particular? Here ar some scenarios where Domainwatch might come in handy.
- You let a domain name slip. You want it back, but the new owner doesn’t want to sell. So you just have to wait, maybe even years before the domain name becomes again available for registration. Domainwatch will notify you when this domain name is available for registration.
- You like a domain name, but the owner is asking for too much money. Maybe he will change his mind, or maybe he will just let it go one day. You can’t tell, so you just track this domain name, and monitor status codes, and if the domain name is being renewed on time.
- Domain expirations happen for the weirdest reason so you think you will sleep better if there’s a backup domain expiration notification on the domain names you own. It doesn’t cost anything, so it won’t hurt. With all the parked domains, “future projects”, domain investments, “old projects”, premium domains… who can keep track of all this? Excel sheets? There’s a better way.
To summarize, what does Domainwatch do?
If you would casually like to know if some domain name will become available so that you can get it at base price, this is the tool for that. There are still thousands of domains every day that do expire without anyone catching them! This tool doesn’t compete with big dropcatching services, it will help you catch domain names that are going to expire anyway! You just don’t have to to keep checking these domain names manually. Just set it, and forget it!
