    Can anybody help I have found some nice domains on expireddomains that are expired but not yet deleted. By the time they are ready to be registered someone has taken them away from me. How do snatch these domains before anyone. Do I have to back order? how does it work?

    If you back order you are given a spot on a waiting list for the domain. You pay the domain registrar $XX to reserve your spot for the domain.

    Hi therage , Thank you for your help. do you know a registrar that i can back order cheap? I have ooked around and have not found less than 60 USD. Will a backorder guarantee that i am the first to take the order or is an auction amongst all back orders

    I have back ordered a few domains via Godaddy's backordering. I probably could have waited them out, but for 20.99 (last time I looked), you can back order it and it add to monitoring... and not have to worry about checking it daily.

    If it is one that you really want, it might be worth the peace of mind.

    If you don't get the domain, you can use the credit towards another backorder or maybe even use the credit for other godaddy services. You don't lose the 20.99. You just may have to use it for something else.

    I've used GoDaddy's backorder service and acquired several domains using it. It works nicely. :)

    thank you all, Smart man very useful too.
    I have just tried Crazy domains to get a back order, yes they were cheap but the setup takes up to 48hours... well I did not get my domain!
