Domain Backorder FAQ

What is domain backorder?

Domain backorder is a service that will automatically monitor the availability of a domain name on a regular basis, and if it becomes available, it will submit a registration request on your behalf. It is useful for customers who wish to monitor the status of a domain, but who lack the time or resources to manage this process themselves.

How does domain backorder work?

With our direct registry connections, we are able to keep track of the availability of your back-ordered domain. If the status of the domain name changes from unavailable to available, we attempt to register the domain name on your behalf. Domain backorders are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Any duplicate (or multiple) applications will be prioritised in the chronological order of acceptance of those orders.

Does back-ordering guarantee me a registration?

No. The domain backorder product is a monitoring service that maintains a watch over the status of a domain and submits a registration request on your behalf if it becomes available. The domain may never become available for public registration while you are monitoring it. It is also impossible for us to guarantee registration of the domain on your behalf if it does become available.
