Frequently Asked Questions about Domain Name Backorder
A domain name backorder is like putting a reservation on a domain name registered to someone else. If the domain name you want expires, you get a chance to register it before it’s available to the public.
Domain Name Backorder is available for .com, .co, .info, .org, .net, .me, .mobi, .us, and .biz addresses.
If you don’t know how to backorder a domain name, you’re not alone. The process can vary slightly from registrar to registrar, but the general process is the same. When you backorder a domain name, we apply your payment to the domain name when it expires. If you’re the only one who has back ordered the domain name, it’s yours at no additional cost. If it goes to auction, we use your backorder payment to place the opening bid. You can continue to bid on the domain name, or move your backorder credit to another domain name.
For more information, see Setting up Backorders.
While we cannot guarantee that you will secure the domain name you want, we will make every attempt to acquire it on your behalf. If the current registrant doesn’t renew the domain name, we use every registration channel at our disposal to register it for you. Our domain name backorder process gives all of our customers the chance to get the domain names they want.
For more information, see Does Domain Backorders guarantee domain name registration?
If you purchase a domain name backorder, we will notify you as soon as it becomes available. When you place a domain name backorder, we give you free daily monitoring tools to keep an eye on the domain name.
The next step is to use your domain monitoring tools to monitor the progress of your backorder. After you backorder a domain name, we check its status daily and send you email notifications whenever there’s a change. After the current registration expires, we attempt to capture the domain name before the registry releases it to the public.
If your domain name backorder is unsuccessful, we recommend trying again with a different domain name. Moving your backorder to another domain name is fast and free.
