What is a domain backorder, anyway?

You know how you get those little numbered tickets at the supermarket? A domain backorder works in a similar way. You’ll be first in line if a previously owned domain becomes available. There’s a little more to it than that, of course.

It is owned by someone else, but you want it.
Let's see if we can make it happen.

Domains are forever (except when they’re not).

Thousands of domains expire each year and are not renewed for various reasons. If any of those are the domains you're looking for, we'll swoop in and get them for you. We can do it with any .com, .co, .info, .org, .net, .me, .mobi, .us or .biz address.

Go for the win.

Someone else's dream domain could also be yours. We'll notify you if someone else wants the same domain as you. The asset is then put up for auction. It's entirely up to you whether you want to bid to win or not. In either case, that domain will be acquired by someone fresh.

Are you the one who placed the winning bid? If that's the case, you've just acquired your dream domain. If you didn't, no problem. Your backorder credits never expire, meaning you can simply transfer them to another domain.

Domains are forever (except when they’re not).

Every year, there are thousands of domains that expire and don’t get renewed for one reason or another. If any of those are the domain you’re after, that’s when we swoop in and get it for you. We can do it with any .com, .co, .info, .org, .net, .me, .mobi, .us or .biz address.

Go for the win.

Your dream domain could be someone else’s, too. If someone else wants the same domain you do, we’ll let you know. At that point, it goes up for auction. You can either bid to win or pass — it’s your call. Either way, someone new is getting that domain.

Did you place the winning bid? If so, you're now the proud owner of your dream domain. If you didn't, you can transfer your backorder credits to another domain. They'll never expire.

Options? You’ve got plenty.

Whether you won or lost that dream domain, there’s still a ton of opportunity ahead of you.

Allow us to introduce you to the world of domain investing.

That’s correct, there’s a thing called domain investing. Purchase domains at ordinary prices and resell them on our Domain Auction site for a profit. It has the potential to earn you a little (or a lot of) more cash, which is never a bad thing.

Let your domains work for you.

Have you ever visited a website that was entirely comprised of advertisements? CashParking is based on this premise, and it can help you earn some additional income. On the standard plan, you get 60% of the advertising sales, and on the CashParking Premium plan, you get 80%. Why not use your domains to generate revenue?

FAQs

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.

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.

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.

If you purchase a domain name backorder, we notify you as soon as it becomes available. Plus, when you place a backorder at ELITE, we give you free daily monitoring tools to keep an eye on the domain name.

When you backorder a domain name at ELITe, we give you more than just an opportunity to secure your dream domain name. We give you tools to succeed online. Every backorder includes free Domain Monitoring, a one-year membership to ELITE Auctions®, one year of domain name registration, and proceeds toward your first bid if the domain name you backordered goes to auction.

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. If we are successful and you are the only backorder holder, you become the domain name registrant. If there are multiple backorder holders, you can participate in an auction to win the domain name.

You can log in to your ELITE account to view and monitor your backorder in the Domain Manager. That's where we display all of the important information you need, including status updates and the domain name's expiration date.

No. We no longer support privacy on backordered domains. If we’re able to successfully capture the domain for you via backorder, you can upgrade your protection plan after the domain has moved to your account.

If we are successful in our attempt to secure your dream domain, we register the domain name to you and then put it in your account within 45 days. One year of domain name registration is included in the cost of your backorder. Annual discounts available on NEW purchases only. Products will automatically renew until canceled. You may turn off the auto-renewal feature by visiting your ELITE account.

If your domain name backorder is unsuccessful, you can keep the backorder on the same domain to try again the next time it expires. Or, you can change your backorder to a different domain, at no cost to you.
