Frequently Asked Questions

A Domain Backorder service means a request by you to us for a domain name that is not available for public registration at the time the back-order request is submitted, but which we will monitor, and if and as the domain selected becomes available for public registration, we will attempt to register it on your behalf.

Back ordering a domain can allow you to monitor domains you’re interested in without having to actively explore them.

You can easily backorder a domain through the built-in search engine on our website.

All information, including your domain name’s expiration date, can be found publicly on the WHO Is Database, however, if your account is with Webcentral it can be found in The Console, which you may access using your log in details.

You can view your domain backorders on your customer services page.

When your domain becomes available the system will automatically attempt to acquire the domain for you. You will be notified via the email that is registered with us.

There is no guarantee of acquiring a domain name when you place an order. The current holder of the domain name has the first right to renew the domain name. If the current owner restores their domain during the grace period, the reservation also falls away.
