Domain Backorder FAQs

Every day, thousands of previously registered domains that haven’t been renewed by their registrants are released back to the general public. Many of these domains include attractive keywords making the competition strong to register them as soon as they become available. Our backordering system has been developed with the sole purpose of maximizing the chances of catching those domains exactly when the registry releases them. Placing a backorder with us dramatically increases the chances of getting the domain you want the minute it’s released.

You can submit backorders for any currently registered domain anytime, in any of our supported TLDs (see above). These orders remain on hold in our system and become activated if the requested domain is deleted and is scheduled for release by the registry.

We maintain lists of domains that are just about to become available. These lists are updated hourly and are available for free to all our resellers through the control panel. You can download the list for a specific TLD, or for all TLDs at once. You can also search for specific domains using the search function in the control panel or via the API.

No. All backorders are kept completely confidential from the public.

There are some occasions when there are multiple requests for the same domain name. When that happens, customers are invited to a private auction portal. Unlike other auction platforms, oursare not open to the general public and only customers who have placed a backorder are allowed to participate. As a CentralNic Reseller customer, you also get the added bonus of earning extra commission if your customer wins the name they want in the auction!

Our backorder service has one of the broadest TLD coverages in the market and is constantly fine-tuned to increase your chances of getting the domain you want. Registering recently released domains is a very competitive race, so unfortunately we cannot guarantee we will be successful every time though we focus on having strong success rates.

Backorder Lites are Backorders that are processed with a lower priority than regular ones, they’re also less expensive. In case of multiple Backorder Lites for the same domain, the first one received is awarded the domain. Regular Backorders always take precedence over Backorder Lites, and Backorder Lites are not invited to auctions for domains with multiple Backorder requests. Backorder Lite is available for .com, .net, .biz and .org.
