Domains

You can’t have a website without a domain name. Like a street address that tells people where you live, a domain helps customers drive directly to your website. We can help you find one you’ll love.

Why do I need a domain name?

A domain name can serve as your distinct identity on the internet. If you want to promote yourself, your brand, or your business, a specialized domain name is essential.  LEARN MORE >>>>

What if the domain I want is already taken?

Don’t get discouraged in your domain name search if what you’re looking for is already taken. We have a couple of ways for dealing with such a situation. You can try our Domain Broker Service, where we negotiate acquiring the domain from its current owner. We also offer a Domain Backorder service, where you purchase a backorder credit to give you a chance to get the domain when it goes into auction.

Domain Backorders is a service that helps you attempt to acquire a domain name when it becomes available for registration. It includes a Domain Monitoring membership and one year of domain name registration.

Placing a backorder does not guarantee that you will acquire the domain name. The current registrant might renew the domain name, or we might be unsuccessful in our attempt to register it for you.

This process is in place to provide each of our customers an equal opportunity to acquire domain names.

 

  • You backorder a domain name — You can attempt to purchase a backorder for a domain name before it expires. Only one customer may place a backorder on a domain name. 
  • You monitor the domain name — With your free Domain Monitoring membership, you can monitor your backordered domain name and receive email notifications within 24 hours of any changes in registrar, status, expiration date, or nameservers.
  • We attempt to capture the domain name — We attempt to register the domain name before the release time, and we continue to make attempts until we or another registrar captures it.
    • If we capture the domain name — We award the domain name to you. We process a change of registrant and move the domain name into your account within 45 days. Your domain name is registered with us for one year from the time it enters your account.
    • If we don’t capture the domain name — We email you that the backorder was unsuccessful.

 

 

If you want to capture a domain name that someone else currently has registered, you can place a backorder. Domain Backorders attempts to register the domain name if it becomes available. Or, if the domain name is listed for auction, Domain Backorders gives you instructions on how to participate.

When you purchase a backorder, you can set it as public or private. Private backorders protect your personal information by not listing it in the Whois database.

If the backorder is not successful, you can reassign it to another domain name or request a refund from our support team.

 Note: Certain country-code top-level domain names (ccTLDs), such as .us, have residency requirements. If you want to backorder a ccTLD, see About ccTLDs (Country-Code Domain Names) to find the Help article with its residency requirements.

 Note: We’ve disabled .tc and .vg new registrations and transfers to us until further notice. We’ll turn these services back on when we resolve our registry partner issues. Renewals and transfers away are unaffected.

Some countries or geographical regions, such as .us (United States) and .me (Montenegro), sponsor country-code top-level domain names (ccTLDs). These two-letter domain name extensions have special rules and requirements. For example, they vary widely in their registration lengths and criteria, automatic renewal dates, domain name contact changes, and even transfer procedures.

Read the respective Help article for a ccTLD extension prior to purchasing it, renewing it, backordering it, transferring it, bidding on it, changing your contact information for it, or changing its nameservers.

For more information about ccTLDs, see this article about domain name registries around the world.

Use WHOIS to see if a domain is available.
