Does Domain Backorders guarantee domain name registration?
No. The Domain Backorders service does not guarantee you will acquire a domain name. When you place a backorder, we attempt to acquire the domain name for you when it becomes available for registration. If it's listed for auction, we provide you instructions on how to participate.
Each backorder comes with Domain Monitoring, a useful service that lets you track the domain name. It keeps you in the loop on that domain name's expiration date and any changes to its status.
If a backordered domain name becomes available, but our service fails to acquire it, or you lose the auction, you can reassign the backorder to another domain name. If we are not able to acquire your domain name, we notify you by email.
Note: If a Domain Backorder credit has been applied to an auction, then it is non-refundable (if not yet applied to an auction, eligible for a refund within 30 days of the date of the transaction).
For information about reassigning a backorder, see Change a Backorder to a different domain name.
