    Just a quick note to let everyone know that we are now displaying a selection of .au domains from the next drop on a new sidebar widget (located on the right hand side of the page).

    We hope it helps visitors spot something they might have not otherwise seen. This widget should list some of the better names dropping, but we're still tweaking the selection criteria ;)

    As you've probably already read here many times, if you're serious about securing a particular expiring domain name make sure you bid on both Drop and Netfleet.

    Cheers,
    Chris

    The special DNTrade secret sauce :)

    Nah, it's based off a bunch of metrics such as length, search volume etc. Was awesome fun to play around with and we're still working on it, it's far from perfect.

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Liking the sidebar already. It encouraged me to pick up a domain today I otherwise would have overlooked.
