.uk Dropcatching Solutions & Backorder Services

Hubbard Media is UK based consultancy providing backorder and dropcatching services for dropping/expiring .uk domain names.

Our clients range from everyday non-domainers looking to secure the perfect name for their business, right through to professional domainers looking for competitive DAC hosting solutions.

The .co.uk domain market affords huge opportunities. It is where professionals lurk when they discover ever-decreasing, low-hanging fruit in the .com space, where the aftermarket flourishes but is relatively expensive. That cycle is repeating here with .uk domains but the time to strike is NOW! Nominet's shelving of the 'direct.uk' initiative in February 2013 has seen a significant surge in interest in the UK namespace so now is the time to get serious!

If you have any questions about any of our dropcatching services or even if you're looking for general information as to how to enter the dropcatching business then please don't hesitate to contact us. We have caught over 20,000 domains on our systems!


  • If you don't make your money back in 12 months on our annual prepaid hosting deal we'll give you your money back (terms and conditions apply).
  • Prepaid, non-refundable, transferrable catch booking credits available. Now becoming very popular since our last newsletter! Buy for your own use, or make a market in selling to others. Remember, our standard backorder price is £45. Prices as follows:

Each backorder is charged at £45 (no VAT). If we fail to secure the backordered domain for you then you will be given a credit which you can use when you next backorder with us.

If the domain you are backordering is likely to be highly contended or holds particular importance to you then please contact us to arrange special priority on the backorder.

Also, ask us about discounted and transferrable catch credits from as little as £20 each, which you may purchase in advance!

Please note: All successful backorders/catches must be claimed for transfer within 3 months of the catch date or we reserve the right to dispose of them.
