What is domain backorder,
anyway ?

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.

You’ve got plenty of options.

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

Let us show you the world of domain investing.

That’s right, domain investing is a thing. Purchase domains for standard rates, then resell them for profit on our Domain Auction site. It could make you a little (or a lot of) extra cash, and that’s never a bad thing.

Money for nothing and your checks for free.

When you backorder a domain name at Naissus, 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 Naissus Auctions®, one year of domain name registration, and proceeds toward your first bid if the domain name you backordered goes to auction. When your backorder is successful, get started building an awesome online presence with Website Builder 7.

If the name you want is already registered, you can still own it! Secure your chance to snag up a domain* the instant it becomes available.

* Includes the cost of registering the domain name and ICANN Fee.
* If you don’t get the name, you don’t lose — just re-assign to another name.
*Includes .COM, .CO, .INFO, .ORG, .NET, .ME, .MOBI, .US or .BIZ.

Your questions, our answers

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.

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.

Naissus Domain Monitoring notifies you via email whenever the status of a domain name that you are monitoring changes. By default, the administrative contact receives all Domain Monitoring notifications, but you can set up two additional contacts to receive them.

If you no longer want to monitor or backorder a domain name, you can cancel your Domain Backorders and Monitoring service through the Domain Manager in your Naissus account.
