List of domain name backorder services

List of Domain Name Backorder ServicesWhen a domain name expires you can sometimes bid for it in auction.

However, many domain names never go to auction. Instead, they expire and are dropped allowing a user to register them for about $10 (the registration fee).

BUT, if someone else wants the same domain name as you they are likely to try to register it with an automated service – called a dropcatching service.

And let’s face it…computers are faster than us and can see if the domain name is available every second of the day; we have to sleep. To compete with them, you can pay about $60 and hire a backorder service (also known as a dropcatching service) to do the same on your behalf.

Notes:
Some of these services charge to place the domain name backorder, while others only charge you if a backorder is completed. Do your due diligence.
If more than one backorder is placed at any service, it’s likely to go to a closed auction at that service provider; in some cases, it goes to the first backorder.
No single service provider can guarantee acquisition and – due to many factors – no one service provider is better at acquisition than another. If you really want a domain name, put in a backorder at all of them.
