With so many different places to submit your domain backorder requests online, which is the cheapest? I’ll answer that question a little bit further down in this post. Before I get into that, I’d like to remind our readers that just because some place is the cheapest, doesn’t mean it’s the best. When you’re going after highly desirable domains which may have interest from multiple people, you should be thinking about backordering it everywhere and not only at the cheapest outlets. When you have multiple outlets chasing after the same domain for you, it will increase your odds of being successful by at least one of them catching it. However, if you are wanting to backorder less competitive domain names which you don’t think others out there will be going after, the cheapest option with a decent success rate should do. Check out a number of the most popular domain backorder outlets below and read more about them before you consider using them!
BackorderZone – This outlet is one of the smaller options and their success rate is not that high for competitive domains. They start backorder prices at just $25 per successful registration of your desired domain. But, domains that receive multiple backorders will go into a private 3-Day auction. There are better and more affordable options in this list!
DomainMonster – Another one of the smaller domain backorder outlets, DomainMonster has a standard domain backorder fee of $64.99 per successful domain they catch. One nice thing about this option is that they only allow one backorder per domain. This means there is no backorder auction process and you won’t have multiple people backordering the same domain. Still, there are better options in this list!
DynaDot – This company has slowly been in the expired domain industry for a while now. They’ve been extremely popular amongst those who drop catch using personal software and their backorder services also have a high success rate. They charge a standard fee $14.99 per backorder and if multiple backorders are placed on the same domain, a private 3-Day auction is held and the highest bidder gets the domain!
Epik – Probably the worst option when it comes to backordering a domain. Their pricing is the highest at $199 and their success rate isn’t that high. If that isn’t bad enough, they don’t offer cash refunds – only “in house” credit!
GoDaddy – Almost everyone is aware of GoDaddy. Usually for registering new domains, but they do also offer a backorder service. Their pricing is $20.98 per backorder and the services aren’t worth using. They only allow one backorder per domain, but other outlets are usually more successful. Pheenix and DynaDot both offer cheaper pricing and have more success!
Hexonet – One of the best options when it comes to backordering ccTLD domains. Those who want to backorder domains in country code extensions like DE, CO.UK, CH, NL, and similar should consider using Hexonet. They do offer some first come/first serve backorders, but have other extensions which will go to an auction. The standard Hexonet backorder cost is $69 per domain and funds must be in your account to place a backorder request!
Name.com – One of the oldest and most popular registrars listed here. Name.com has a decent success rate and they only allow one backorder per domain. That means no auction process! They also charge a standard rate of $49.95 per backorder and funds must be in your account to place a backorder request.
NameJet – Many people are aware of NameJet and use them on a regular basis. This outlet does have a high success rate and charges a standard fee of $69 per successful backorder catch. When multiple backorders are placed on the same domain they also start a private 3-Day auction where the highest bidder will score the domain!
Pheenix – Out of all the backorder options here Pheenix is probably the newest. Not only are they fairly affordable, they have a high success rate as well. They charge a standard rate of $18.95 per backorder upon successfully catching your domain. If multiple people backorder the same domain then a private 3-Day auction. The highest bidder will get the domain!
Pool – This company has been in the industry for a while. They used to have more success than nowadays, but they get a more standard rate of $60 upon successfully catching your domain. If multiple people backorder the same domain then those people will go into a private 3-Day auction. The highest bidder will get the domain!
SnapNames – One of the most popular domain backorder outlets for many years now. SnapNames has a high success rate, but can be costly. They charge a standard $69 fee upon successfully catching your domain. If multiple people backorder the same domain then a private auction is held for anywhere between one to twenty eight days.
