What is a domain backorder, anyway?
You know those little numbered tickets that you get at a supermarket? A domain backorder is kind of like that. If a previously owned domain becomes available, you’re in line to get it. Of course, there’s a little more to it than that.
Someone else owns it but you want it. Let’s make that happen.
Domains are forever
(except when they’re not).Every year, there are thousands of domains that expire and don’t get renewed for one reason or another. If any of those are the domain you’re after, that’s when we swoop in and get it for you. We can do it with any .com, .co, .info, .org, .net, .me, .mobi, .us or .biz address.
Go for the win.Your dream domain could be someone else’s, too. If someone else wants the same domain you do, we’ll let you know. At that point, it goes up for auction. You can either bid to win or pass — it’s your call. Either way, someone new is getting that domain.
There are no losers here.Did you place the winning bid? Good job, you’re now the proud owner of your dream domain. If you didn’t, no big deal: Your backorder credits never expire, and you can transfer them to another domain. After all, dreams don’t die, they multiply.
Options? You’ve got plenty.
Whether you won or lost that dream domain, there’s still a ton of opportunity ahead of you.

GoDaddy is the GOLD STANDARD for domain name services!Just had another great experience with GoDaddy tech support today, as I was a bit challenged with completing a domain backorder request. Tech support answered after just a brief hold and quickly answered my questions to get me on the right track. Great job! I’ve used some no-frills domain registrars in the past, but I highly recommend GoDaddy, especially for those who are not very “technical.” They are the gold standard in domain name services.

What is domain backordering?
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.
