When can I back order a domain name?
You can place a back order on a domain name after the expiration date has passed.
Can more than one person backorder a domain?
Yes, more than one person can request a backorder of the same domain. When this happens, the domain goes up for auction and is awarded to the highest bidder.
Can I register a domain as soon as it reaches the expiration date?
There is a common misconception that domains expire on their expiration date. If a domain registration is not renewed by its expiration date, the domain simply goes into "expired" status, which means all services are shut off. Registrars have a grace period during which the current holder can renew for the standard renewal fee.
