Domain Backorder

If the name you want is already registered, you can still own it! Secure your chance to snag up a domain the instant it becomes available. But let’s be honest. Domain Backorder service does not guarantee that we will be able to acquire the domain for you.

How does Domain Backorder work?

Unlike some backorder services, we don’t mess around with auctions or charge more for sought-after domains. If we fail to secure the web address when it drops, you can keep trying for another domain name for the next time – at no extra cost.


Purchase the service and activate your account.


Simply search for the domain you want.


Wait for your domain to become available.


We will then attempt to register it for you.

What is Domain Backorder?

Backordering a domain means placing a bid on a domain name that you want for your website but is already owned by someone else.

Domain Backorders is a service that helps you attempt to acquire a domain name when it becomes available for registration. Placing a backorder does not guarantee that you will acquire the domain name. The current registrant might renew the domain name, or we might be unsuccessful in our attempt to register it for you.

Many variables affect the Domain Backorder process. For instance, you might have to participate in an auction to win your back ordered domain name, and the auction might be public or private. This process is in place to provide each of our clients an equal opportunity to acquire domain names.

  • First come, first serve.
  • Expired domains with backlinks.
  • We do all the technical work, so you don’t have to sit there waiting for your chosen address to expire.
  • Buy memorable domains the moment they become available.
  • It’s risk-free. If unsuccessful, re-assign to the other domain.
  • Daily monitoring to keep an eye on your domain.

Our Recommendations

Domain investing is a thing. Contrary to popular belief, domains do expire. The domain name becomes “expired” if its current owner does not renew it by its expiration date. 

  • Perform a WHOIS search with your desired domain name and look through the information.
  • One of the best chances of acquiring the expired domain name you want is to regularly keep track of the status and progress of the expired domain name.
  • Purchase domains for standard rates, then resell them for profit. It could make you a little (or a lot of) extra cash, and that’s never a bad thing.
  • Paying a higher amount for the domain backorder service doesn't mean you have a better chance of acquiring the domain. Anything under 40$ with experienced companies works fine.
  • Place a backorder when there is very little time left for the domain to drop.
