What does backorder mean?
cik said 3 years, 6 months ago:
Im looking at a domain name and this site, godaddy, as opposed to others, tells me the domain name is on back-order.
What does that mean?
And since the goddady site will allow me to order a back-ordered domain name, if i do, how do i know when it is available to me?
And if its not available to me within a couple weeks, do i get a refund?

Unfortunately, the backorder service is a non-refundable service. When you purchase a backorder for a domain, we will track the domain and alert you as to any changes that are made. Once the domain becomes available for registration, we will attempt to capture it for you automatically. If the capture attempt fails or if you get tired of waiting for a particular domain, you can always change the domain associated with your backorder. This service will remain in your account until it successfully captures a domain for you. For more information, take a look at this link:

I have just read about what does backorder means here. I thought totally different. Anyway, i have purchased a domain already through backorder. Actually, I owned the domain before and i failed to renew it since i cant access the account that i used when i first register that domain (i forget everything). So i decided to create new account and get back my domain through backordering. when i paid 20USD, i thought i gain back control on that domain. unfortunately i cant. All registry status were prohibited. I cant change anything back. Is there anyway you can help me get back my domain. My domain name is “katsoot.com”. Since i am also the owner before of the same domain can you give me a favor regarding this. Thanks so much.

How can we know how long a domain has before it’s due to become available again?
This might be important in making a decision on whether or not to backorder.

Each registrar may have their own process for handling expired domains, you can see ours here:
Once the domain is returned to the registry, they may hold it for up to an additional 30 days before making it available again for registration.
You can determine the status of the domain and when it expired on a WHOIS.
