How it works


A domain name says a lot about your company. It's the first thing people see when searching for your website. CatchTiger offers domain names in an open auction with domain names that are about to be released. Bidding is already possible starting at € 35, based on no cure, no pay.


    We update the list of domain names in our auction every day. This means that new and interesting domain names may be up for grabs for you every single day. We have collected extra details about these domain names and summarized it in our very own “Tiger Score”. If a domain name scores a high Tiger Score, it often means that it is a popular one. But don’t be deceived! Even domain names with a lower Tiger score can be interesting for business.

    In this video we will explain how the domain name auction works, but also explain the difference between the basic and expert mode, how to filter and sort domain names, and define the difference between a static bid and an autobid. 


    Create an account & place a bid

    In order to place a bid during a domain name auction, you'll need a CatchTiger account. You can easily create a free account here. As soon as you have activated your account, you can place bids on domain names. When you are the highest bidder at the end, you are automatically the winner of that domain name auction. After that, we will do everything in our power to register the domain name for you. Note: every bid you place is binding! It is not possible to lower or cancel your bid. 


    Personal account

    You can find every bid you have placed in your personal account. Not only the open bids, but also an overview of all the won and lost bids with their current status can be seen here. It is also possible to adjust bids and change your personal details from your overview. We will explain how all of this works in this video. 

    Open domain name auction & No cure, no pay

    CatchTiger makes it possible to buy and sell domain names via open and transparent domain name auctions. With this system, everyone gets a fair chance to buy a good domain name. Should we fail to register your domain name, we won’t charge you: No Cure, No Pay. The odds we will register the domain name first, are very good.


    It is also possible to sell your domain names via CatchTiger. In your personal account, you can find the item called “Marketplace”, where you can put your domain name up for sale. CatchTiger will take care of the entire sale process. Selling your domain name through CatchTiger also goes with the ‘No Cure, No Pay’ principle: you only pay when we sell your domain name. 

    Marketplace & redemption period domain names

    In the domain name auction overview it is possible to filter domain names on marketplace and redemption period. The difference between these two is that marketplace domain names have been put up for sale by their original owners whilst a redemption period domain name can either be canceled by the owner or when the owner hasn’t paid its fees. The redemption period of 40 days gives the original owner the time to recover the domain name. After this redemption period, we try to catch the domain name when it has received a bid.
