Domain Registration – Domain Backorder and Monitoring FAQ

Does Domain Backorders guarantee domain name registration?

No. The Domain Backorders service does not guarantee you will acquire a domain name. When you place a backorder, we attempt to acquire the domain name for you when it becomes available for registration.

Each backorder comes with Domain Monitoring, a useful service that lets you track the domain name. It keeps you in the loop on that domain name’s expiration date and any changes to its status.

If a backordered domain name becomes available, but our service fails to acquire it, you can reassign the backorder to another domain name. If we are not able to acquire your domain name, we notify you by email.

For information about reassigning a backorder, see Changing a Backorder to a Different Domain Name.

What is Domain Name Monitoring?

Domain Monitoring tracks changes to domain name settings. It also includes historical tracking for domain name changes and monitors domain names registered anywhere. When information for these settings changes, Domain Monitoring sends you an email notification.

You set up monitoring for a year at a time. To continue monitoring domain names, you must renew your subscription.

You can use our Domain Monitoring service to track any domain name with a .com, .us, .biz, .net, .org, .info, .me, .mobi, or .co extension, even ones that are not registered by you or with us.

Specifically, this service monitors:

  • Registrar — Notifies you of any change to a monitored domain name’s registrar.
  • Status — Tracks any changes to a domain name’s status. For example, if a monitored domain name registered with us changes its status to unlocked, Domain Monitoring notifies you. It also notifies you when a monitored domain name that is not registered with us goes into pendDelete or redemptionPeriod status; indicating that the domain name might soon become available.
  • Expiration Date — Tracks any changes to the registration expiration date for any monitored domain name.
  • Nameserver — Tracks nameserver changes.

For more information, see Setting up Domain Monitoring.

What is Investor’s Edge?

Investor’s Edge is a monthly subscription service that provides a list of more than 250,000 expiring domain names. This service gives you a jump on your peers by providing up-to-date information on domain name availability and lets you place an order immediately.

We update all the domain names on this power list daily. You can backorder a domain name from this list the moment you see it.

Can a domain name be backordered more than once?

Yes. More than one of our customers can purchase a backorder for the same domain name.

If more than one backorder is purchased for a particular domain name, the backorder placed first becomes the opening bid in a public auction, and other backorder holders are notified when the domain name goes to auction. Backorder holders and the general public have the opportunity to place a higher bid.

The fee with a backorder will include the registration charge for 1 year, with any additional costs from Auction Up Pricing being added in.

If your backorder is not successful, you can reassign it to another domain name. See Changing a Backorder to a Different Domain Name for information reassigning it.

Until your backorder captures a domain name, it does not expire.

Prior to March 2009, we allowed only one backorder per domain name. Therefore, if another customer placed a backorder on a domain name prior to March 2009, then you cannot place a backorder on the same domain name as long as the original backorder remains effective.

Can premium domain names be backordered?

No. At this time, we do not offer backordering for premium domain names.

Why are certain domain names unavailable for backorder?

If the domain name you want to register is unavailable, under most circumstances, you can purchase a backorder for it. Domain Backorders is a service that helps you attempt to acquire a domain name when it becomes available for registration.

However, backorders are unavailable for domain names under the following circumstances:

  • Single Backorder Policy — We allow only one backorder per domain name. Therefore, if another customer placed already placed a backorder on a domain name, then you cannot place a backorder on the same domain name as long as the original backorder remains effective.
  • TLD Not Supported — We only support backorders for the following top-level domain names (TLDs): .biz, .com, .info, .me, .mobi, .net, .org, and .us.
  • Blocked — We block customers from backordering certain domain names, such as our company’s domain name.

About Domain Investor’s Edge

How does Domain Investor’s Edge work?

All domains on this list have already expired or been canceled. They’ve also emerged from the legally required “grace” period. So the date you see is the actual date the name will be available for purchase (domain registration).

Although lengthy (95,000+ names!) your Investor’s Edge subscription makes the list easy to manage. You can search by TLD (.COM, .INFO, .NET, .ME, .ORG, .BIZ, .MOBI, .US, or .CO) or wild card/keyword. You can also filter the list, based on the length of the domain name and whether or not it contains dashes and/or numbers. Select the names you want to capture directly from the list, and once you’ve selected that name, no one else may do so.

You have until noon ET each day to submit the names you want to capture. There is no daily limit to the number of names you may submit (subject to change).

Submissions cost $11.95 each.

This fee is non-refundable, but if you secure the name, it includes the cost* to register domain for one year.

We email the results of each day’s submissions by 4:00 PM ET.

* Plus ICANN fee of $0.18/yr.

Domain Registration – Setting up Domain Backorders

If you want to capture a domain name that someone else currently has registered, you can place a backorder. Domain Backorders attempts to register the domain name if it becomes available. Or, if the domain name is listed for auction, Domain Backorders gives you instructions on how to participate.

When you purchase a backorder, you can set it as public or private. Private backorders protect your personal information by not listing it in the Whois database.

If the backorder is not successful, you can reassign it to another domain name or request a refund from our support team.

For more information about the backorder process, see What are Domain Backorders?

Certain country-code top-level domain names (ccTLDs), such as .us, have residency requirements. If you want to backorder a ccTLD, see About ccTLDs (Country-Code Domain Names) to find the Help article with its residency requirements.

Domain Registration – What are Domain Backorders?

Domain Backorders is a service that helps you attempt to acquire a domain name when it becomes available for registration. It includes a Domain Monitoring membership and one year of domain name 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.

This process is in place to provide each of our customers an equal opportunity to acquire domain names.

The Backorder Process

  1. You backorder a domain name — You can attempt to purchase a backorder for a domain name before it expires. Only one customer may place a backorder on a domain name. For instructions on placing a backorder, see Setting up Domain Backorders.
  2. You monitor the domain name — With your free Domain Monitoring membership, you can monitor your backordered domain name and receive email notifications within 24 hours of any changes in registrar, status, expiration date, or nameservers.
  3. We attempt to capture the domain name — We attempt to register the domain name before the release time, and we continue to make attempts until we or another registrar captures it.
    • If we capture the domain name — We award the domain name to you. We process a change of registrant and move the domain name into your account within 45 days. Your domain name is registered with us for one year from the time it enters your account.
    • If we don’t capture the domain name — We email you that the backorder was unsuccessful. You can request a refund from our support department or apply your backorder credit to another domain name. There is no time limit for backorder reassignment, and the product does not expire.
