Domain Backorders

When your perfect domain name is taken, all is not lost!

We’ll make sure you’re first in-line when it’s available again!

Snap up domains before anyone else gets a chance with 123 Reg

Thousands of valuable domain names expire and drop back onto the open market every day. If you’ve got your eyes on one of them you can place a backorder with us. We’ll then monitor your chosen domain to see when it expires. As soon as it becomes available, we’ll snap it up for you before anyone else can even blink.

Unlike some backorder services, we don’t mess around with auctions or charge more for sought-after domains as we only allow one person to backorder a particular domain at one time. If we fail to secure the web address when it drops, we’ll keep trying for you next time – at no extra cost.

You only pay the backorder fee if we were successful in securing your desired domain for you.

How backordering domains can help

Trying to register expired domains is difficult. Competition is high and it’s hard to predict the exact time certain domains will become available. Place a backorder and we’ll monitor that domain automatically. This gives you a much better chance of landing the domains you are looking for and you can place as many backorders as you want.

No win no fee, only pay if the backorder is successful!

We will not charge you up front for placing a domain backorder. If you are successful, you will then need to pay the relevant fee for the domain to be transferred to you. All extensions will be registered for one year. Subsequent renewals will be based on the normal domain renewal fees.
