Expression of interest only
A Backorder request is an expression of interest for a domain name. There is not an auction yet, and your backorder bid is NOT a proxy bid.
The domain status may fall into many categories, and will determine if and when you may be able to become the new registrant. If an auction starts, you will receive an email when the auction starts, indicating the exact ending date and time. Auctions typically last for three days. If you are the only bidder and the domain is secured on your behalf, there is no auction and the domain is typically awarded to you within 24 hours.
This domain may be expired with one of our partner registrars and will be found on the Pre-Release list of domains becoming available within the next 30 days to NameJet members only. If the domain falls into the Pre-Release status and is not renewed by the previous registrant, you will be notified when the auction starts. If the name does not go to auction, the status will change to Wish List.
Once a domain expires with non-participating registrars and goes through any applicable redemption periods, it will then enter a 5-day pending delete status. Once the domain has a Pending Delete status, the name will become available for anyone to register in approximately 5 days. It is important to add the domain to your backorder list before it drops. NameJet will attempt to register the domain when it drops on behalf of our NameJet members. There are no guarantees that NameJet will be successful, but we have an extremely high success rate. You will be notified when an auction starts on these domains.
If the domain is currently in a registered/active state (has not expired and is not ready to be deleted), the domain will be added as a Wish List item. It is possible this domain may not become available for a long time. We will send you an email if the name comes up as a Pre-Release or Pending Delete and change the status of your Backorder automatically.
