Domain Name Backorder



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.

Domain Backorder is available for .com, .co, .info, .org, .net, .me, .mobi, .us, and .biz addresses.

If you don’t know how to backorder a domain name, you’re not alone. The process can vary slightly from registrar to registrar, but the general process is the same across the Web. When you backorder a domain name, we apply your payment to the domain name when it expires. If you’re the only one who backordered the domain name, it’s yours at no additional cost. If it goes to auction, we use your backorder payment to place the opening bid. You can continue to bid on the domain name, or simply move your backorder credit to another domain name.

For more information see Setting up Backorders.

While we cannot guarantee that you will secure your dream domain name, we will make every attempt to acquire it on your behalf. If the current registrant doesn’t renew the domain name, we use every registration channel at our disposal to register it for you. Our backorder process gives all of our customers the chance to get the domain names they want.

If you purchase a domain name backorder, we notify you as soon as it becomes available. Plus, when you place a backorder at GoDaddy, we give you free daily monitoring tools to keep an eye on the domain name.

When you backorder a domain name at Chita.Host, 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 and one year of domain name registration.

The next step is to use your Domain Monitoring membership to monitor the progress of your backorder. After you backorder a domain name, we check its status daily and send you email notifications whenever there’s a change. After the current registration expires, we attempt to capture the domain name before the registry releases it to the public. If we are successful and you are the only backorder holder, you become the domain name registrant.

If we are successful in our attempt to secure your dream domain, we register the domain name to you and then put it in your account within 45 days. One year of domain name registration is included in the cost of your backorder. Products will automatically renew until canceled. You may turn off the auto-renewal feature by visiting your Chita.Host account. 

If your domain name backorder is unsuccessful, we recommend trying again with a different domain name. Moving your backorder to another domain name is fast and free.
