What is domain backordering?

Placing a domain backorder is essentially like putting a reservation on a domain name registered to someone else. If that domain name expires, you get a chance to register it before it’s available to the public.

How do I backorder a domain name at DomainNow?

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 across the Web. When you backorder a domain name, we apply your payment to the domain name when it expires. If you’re the only one who backordered 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 simply move your backorder credit to another domain name.

Are domain backorders guaranteed?

While we cannot guarantee that you will secure your dream domain name, 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 backorder process gives all of our customers the chance to get the domain names they want.

I purchased a domain name backorder. What happens now?

The next step is to use your Domain Monitoring membership 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.

My backorder was unsuccessful. What should I do?

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.
