Domain Hunter Gatherer Free will always be free and is a great way to take a look around the software. If you just want an easy way to search lot's of Domain Auction websites then this may be the license for you.

For payments we use Paypro Global, they are an international payments processor, for all major payment methods. The methods they accept are below:
- Paypal (Recommended)
- Credit Card

All licenses are created as soon as the payment has been confirmed by the payment processor, this is usually within a few minutes.
If there is ever a delay in receiving your account you can contact us through the support helpdesk within the member's area and we will strive to get you up and running as soon as possible.
Each license can be installed on as many machines as you like but will only run on a single machine at any one time.
Each machine can run multiple instances if you have many jobs you wish to work on at once, these can be run on the same machine.
We offer a 7 day refund guarantee for all paid subscriptions. This policy covers the most recent active payment per license.
Refunds can be requested via email or support helpdesk (in member's area). Please do not file a dispute or chargeback with the payment processor as this usually just delays the refund being given and makes communication slightly more difficult.

The minimum system requirements for Domain Hunter Gatherer are actually really low and any system or affordable VPS should be able to run the software and use it for finding some great domains right away. However with more CPU cores, RAM and a good internet connection it can really stretch it's legs and find more domains.
- Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10, 11, Server 2003, Server 2008, Server 2012 or more recent Windows
- 512MB Ram
- 8Mb+ Internet Connection
- Windows 7+ / Server 2008+ 64-bit
- 2+ Core CPU
- 4GB+ Ram
- 100Mbit Dedicated Connection
- Private Proxies
Most things in Domain Hunter Gatherer can be done without proxies but to really get the most from the software it is strongly advised that users invest in some quality shared or private proxies.
Proxies will allow you to check the quality of more domains with better accuracy and as such it is important that only private or semi-private proxies be used. Public proxies will never give the accuracy or reliability needed.
The proxy providers below have been proven to be reliable and have great support; providing proxies to users for years.
Recommended Proxy providers As the different proxy providers listed will have differing prices it is advised you check all before purchasing to get the best deal.
Domain Hunter Gatherer is updated at loading time automatically to ensure the software is always running as optimally as possible.
There is never a need to manually update or change any files as it is all handled automatically when you start up the software.
Domain Hunter Gatherer Free does not limit how many auction domains you can search for.
Domain Hunter Gatherer Pro does not have any limits on how many domains you can search or find. There are some limits to some of the included services, such as DomDetailer credits.
DomDetailer credits are usually limited to 50k credits for a monthly subscription but more can be purchased for a reasonable price from the DomDetailer website, also linked from in the software.
There are no limits to how many websites you can recover using DomRecovery. DomRecovery is a software for recovering website's content from the Wayback Machine.
All of the domains found will have varying levels of quality but the beauty of Domain Hunter Gatherer is that it allows you to test the quality of lists of thousands of domains with the click of a button.
This functionality gives you the power to filter out any unwanted domains to find only the high value domains.
There is no set schedule for updates but they will be released often. You can check the Update Notes to see how often updates are released.
We release periodic updates to add features, improve features and fix bugs. Just this year we released our third major version with a new UI and many new and improved features.
If you ever feel there is a tool that would help improve the DHG Pro package or you find a bug please do get in touch and let us know. We are always open to feature requests and contructive criticism, it only helps to improve the overall package
In a word, yes.
All of my software is absolutely free of any kind of malware and will never be packaged with any stealth installers so you won't experience any kind of unexpected behaviour with your machine when using Domain Hunter Gatherer.
You can easily import a list of domains to check the quality of them in any version of Domain Hunter Gatherer (even the free version).
If you wish to check whether a list of domains is available for registration then you will require a Pro license as that has the functionality for finding dropped and available domains but checking the quality of domains is available in all versions.
As with any software there will occasionally be a bug or unexpected behaviour.
If you ever spot a bug or think that something is not expected behaviour then simply get in touch via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get it fixed and updated as soon as possible
You can use the support helpdesk system in the members area to get in direct contact with our support or if you are willing to wait a little longer you can email at email@example.com
