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.

 Note: If a Domain Backorder credit has been applied to an auction, then it is non-refundable (if not yet applied to an auction, eligible for a refund within 30 days of the date of the transaction).

For information about reassigning a backorder, see Change a Backorder to a different domain name.

Viewing Your Backordered and Monitored Domain Names

In the Domain Manager, you can view a list of your backordered and monitored domain names. The list includes each domain name’s current status and important dates, such as creation and expiration dates.

To View Your Backordered and Monitored Domain Names

  1. Log in to your ELITE WEB Co. account.
  2. Next to Domain Backordering, click Manage.
  3. The following information is available for each listed domain name:
    • Domain Name — The domain name you backordered or are monitoring.
    • Status — The backorder or monitoring status for the domain name.
    • Available Date — The scheduled availability date for the domain name. We calculate this date using the domain name’s expiration date, renewal grace period, and redemption period, if applicable.
    • Create Date — The original date that the domain name was registered. If the date is within the last five days, the registrant might be testing the domain name’s monetization potential and might cancel it within the five-day grace period. To ensure we have a chance to register the domain name if it’s released, keep your backorder in place.
    • Expiration Date — The date that the domain name expires.
    • Registrar — The domain name’s current registrar.

What happens after I backorder a domain?

domain backorder is a service that attempts to acquire a currently registered domain when it becomes available for registration. Placing a backorder doesn’t guarantee that you’ll acquire the domain. The current registrant might renew the domain, or we might be unsuccessful in our attempt to capture it for you.

  1. Backorder a domain and set it up. Only one person can place a backorder on a domain.
  2. Monitor the domain to be notified of changes to the registrar, status, expiration date or nameservers.
  3. ELITE WEB Co. attempts to capture the domain: We’ll attempt to acquire the domain via backorder after the registry releases the domain on its available date. We’ll continue attempting until we or another registrar captures the domain.

  • Make sure you turn on auto renew to continue your domain registration uninterrupted.
  • Use two-step verification to protect your entire ELITE WEB Co. account.

What is domain backorder and monitoring?

Domain dackordering is a method to acquire a registered domain, and monitoring lets you know when a domain’s settings change. Check out some of the most commonly asked questions for backorders and monitoring.

What is a domain backorder?

A domain backorder is a service that helps you attempt to acquire a domain when it becomes available for registration. You can think of backorder like putting a reservation on a domain — you put your name on a list and when the domain expires, you’ll get a chance to register it before anyone else. Purchasing a backorder also includes a Domain Monitoring membership, and one year of domain name registration.

Does a backorder guarantee domain registration?

No. The Domain Backorders service doesn’t guarantee you’ll acquire a domain name. When you place a backorder, we attempt to acquire the domain name for you when it becomes available for registration.

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.

Can more than one person backorder the same domain?

Prior to March 2009, we allowed only one backorder per domain name. This means that if another customer placed a backorder on a domain name prior to March 2009, you can’t backorder the same domain so long as the original backorder remains in effect. If a backorder was placed on a domain after March 2009, you can still place a backorder on the same domain.

What is domain monitoring?

Domain monitoring tracks changes to certain domain settings so you receive an email when these settings are changed. By default, the administrative contact receives all monitoring notifications, but you can also set up two additional contacts.

Monitoring is set up for one year at a time. To continue monitoring domain, you must renew the monitoring. Monitoring is supported on domains with the following extensions: .com, .us, .biz, .net, .org, .info, .me, .mobi, or .co.

You’ll be notified when any changes are made to the following domain settings:

  • Registrar: Changes to the registrar could indicate a domain transfer
  • Status: Certain actions will change the status of a domain, such as unlocking or expiration
  • Expiration Date: The expiration date might change if the current registrar renews or cancels the domain
  • Nameservers: Changing the nameservers of a domain affects DNS management

Why are some domains not available for backorder?

There are a few situations where a domain might not be eligible for backorder.

  • Single backorder policy — Prior to March 2009, we allowed only one backorder per domain. If someone placed a backorder on a domain prior to March 2009, no other backorder can be placed on the same domain so long as the original backorder remains effective.
  • Domain extension not supported — We support backorders for the following domain extensions: .biz, .com, .info, .me, .mobi, .net, .org, and .us.
  • Blocked — We block customers from backordering certain domain names.
  • Premium domains: At this time, we don’t offer backorders for premium domains.

What happens after I backorder a domain?

After you backorder a domain, we recommend setting up domain monitoring to stay up-to-date on any changes to the domain. The next steps depend on where the domain is currently registered and whether we’re able to capture the backorder. Check out the full process for more details.

I didn’t get my backorder — what should I do next?

There are many reasons we might not be able to capture a backorder for you. If this happens, 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.

  • Ready to get started? Purchase and setup your backorder in your ELITE WEB Co. account.
  • You can also setup domain monitoring to keep an eye on domains you’re interested in.
