Any tips for finding abandoned domains?

    When looking for crusty old domains to buy, I've tried looking for expired domains, or "about to expire" domains. But my experience is unless you have thousands to spend, you're wasting your time on Snapnames etc

    These domain auctions are crazy and full of people with deep pockets. :(
    The most mundane domain can go for several thousand dollars. :eek:
    SEMrush
    So are there better ways to find old domains? There must be thousands of abandoned websites out there. It's just a case of finding them, and matching them to your niche etc.

    Of course forums like DP are always useful, but I wondered if anyone had tried and tested techniques for hunting them down.

    I use my mind thinking of memorable, prononunceable names and then doing a whois search I have found some of them in "pending delete" or "redemption" period.
