I. Introduction:

Moniker Domain Grabber was developed by Domain Software, LLC., to work with Moniker.comís reseller API interface. The software will submit the specified domains in the Domain List box to Monikerís reseller server. The server will collect the data sent, attempt to register the domains you specified, and return the results back to the program. The results from the server will be logged to Monikerlog.txt in the format:

Date Time - # of Tries.
An example of the log is as follows: 06/29/2005 20:07:16 - Tries: 25.

The following tells you that on June 29, 2005 at 8:07:16 PM the domain was submitted for the 25th time. The results are logged when Moniker responds with data to confirm the domain was sent.

II. Usage:

To begin using Moniker Domain Grabber, the fields for Username and Password must be filled in with a valid Moniker reseller account.

The Interval Time dictates how many seconds between each submission of a domain. The Interval Time can have a max value of three digits. In which case the maximum value is 999, which equates to 16.65 minutes. If the interval is set at its default value of one, then all domains in the list will be submitted at a rate of one/second. This is the fastest rate that can be acquired to comply with Monikerís regulations. However, if you wish to extend the delay you can. For example, an interval of 30 would mean every 30 seconds the domains in the list will be submitted.

Moniker Domain Grabber has two methods of starting. First, you can click Start Immediately and bypass entering the Start Time and End Time. Or you can check Start Immediately, after which you need only click the Start button for the domains to be processed. Above you will also note that Logging has been checked. By having Logging checked, all submission of domains will be logged to Monikerlog.txt.

Next you enter the Domains you wish to register or grab during a drop. The software interfaces with Moniker's API so it supports all domain extensions that Moniker supports.

Lastly, before the domains are submitted for registration, you must fill out the Settings information which is required by Moniker in order to register domains. Your serial number is the number we send you after you purchase a license.

Above are the results for the submission of domains listed when Start Immediately is checked. Once you click Start it will become the Stop button. If Start Immediately is checked it will not stop on its own, you must stop it. The Average Number of Submissions lets you know approximately how many times each domain has been submitted to Moniker. In this case each of the six domains above were submitted at an average of 56 times each. The results were logged.
