So how does it work?

If your desired domain name is already taken by someone else our Domain Back order service puts you next in line to purchase it once it expires. If you are the only person to file a backorder request you get it automatically at no additional cost.

What if someone else has also Backordered my Domain name?

If multiple people have backordered a Domain name your initial payment is used as your opening bid and you can continue the bidding process or move your payment to another Domain name. Some names are more popular than others so we can not guarantee that you will be the first, or only person in line to acquire a given Domain name.

How do I know when the Domain name becomes available?

You can monitor the status of your Domain backorder through the My Products section of your account and we will email you once the name becomes available. If you are unsuccessful in acquiring the name the first time around you can keep your reservation for the next time that name expires or transfer it to Backorder another domain name.
