Support page: Domain Backorder FAQ
What is domain backorder?
Domain backordering refers to a service that most domain registrars offer which will allow you to register a domain name that will soon be expiring in hopes of capturing the rights to that domain name before someone else grabs it. Backordering a domain saves you time and increases your odds of securing the domain name when it expires. Keep in mind the domain is not yet available when you are placing a backorder.
How much does it cost to backorder a domain name?
The great thing about backordering a domain is that you pay nothing up front. It is a completely complimentary service to you. You will only pay when we successfully secure the domain name for you. The fixed price will be what you and the seller agree upon when we have successfully secured the domain name.
What happens after you have successfully secured the domain name for me?
After we have secured your domain name for you, we will contact you immediately. We will have you pay the fixed price that is agreed upon at that time. The domain will then be delivered to one of our partnering registars. You will have full domain control at this time. You are able to verify this in the WHOIS record database.
What will happen when two or more backorders are made for the same domain?
If 2 or more users have backordered the same domain name before it dropped then the domain name will go into a private auction for 3 days. The only individuals that will be able to participate in the auction are the individuals that placed a backorder on the domain.
Why should I backorder with you?
You should backorder with us for numerous reasons. We will only charge you when we have successfully secured the domain name. Our fee is the same regardless of the appraisal value of the domain. We are currently only allowing one backorder for the domain name. With that said, our success rate continues to grow everyday.
