Domain Backorder

September 29, 2013  |     |     |   0 Comment

A domain backorder is a service provided by most domain registrars that helps domain investors attempt to acquire a domain name when it expires and becomes available for registration.

Placing a domain backorder does not guarantee that the service will acquire the domain name. The previous owner may ultimately renew the domain before it enters the Domain Pending Delete phase and is deleted. Often, the domain may be auctioned by the registrars prior to its deletion. As such, the investor may have to acquire the domain in an auction where he bids against other investors.
