Auction Bid Script (Snipe) for tdnam[DOT]com

Avg Bid (USD)
Project Budget (USD)
$30 - $250

Project Description:
I want a script that places a bid at tdnam[DOT]com shortly before the end of an expired domain auction.

Input fields are:
- Login (tdnam "login name" or "customer #")
- Password
- Domain Name
- Max Bid (amount in dollars)
- Lead Time (seconds before auction end, defaults to 120 seconds)

The ability to upload a bulk list (TXT or CSV file, or copy-and-paste into notes field) would be nice.

Must be able to cancel and/or modify pending bids.

Script must check whether each domain name has already been entered in the system, to prevent unintentional bidding wars or other errors.

Script should check end-of-auction time, and schedule the bid at the specified time prior to that. Ideally, it should periodically (at least every 12 hours) synchronize system time with tdnam time, or some other way to achieve this.

Shortly before the bid is scheduled to be placed, the system will log into the tdnam account (using the login and password provided), and will then place the max bid amount for the domain at the specified lead time prior to the auction close.

Script must run on shared CPanel hosting and must be easy to install (with clear instructions).

Autobidders will be ignored... To prove that you've actually read this project listing, please make sure you write "Hello JB" in your bid and/or PM.

Must be able to communicate via PM and/or email (no IM, ICQ, etc.).

I only check my emails 1 or 2 times per day.

So batch any questions you have, or specific info you need... because I won't be communicating back and forth throughout the day.

Also, I may not check or respond to emails at all over weekends.
