Domain Backorder

Is the domain name you want not available to register right now?

Frustrating, we know, but you can still track it and snag it the instant it becomes available with Domain Backorder.

Thousands of domain registrations expire each day when their owners don't renew, so if a domain is taken now you can still get your hands on it using our Domain Backorder service.

How do Domain Backorders work?

1. Search

search for your domain name as normal

2. Click

if it has already been taken, simply click “backorder” on the results page

3. Wait

just sit back and wait, we’ll keep an eye on your chosen domain and try to order it for you if it becomes available

4. Success!

our systems will poll the domain several times a second, the instant it becomes available, we'll snap it up for you!

Why does a domain not become available the day it expires?

The owner or 'leaseholder' of the domain still has the right to renew it for a while after it has expired. The length of this grace period varies depending on the TLD, but if the domain has still not been renewed once it's over then we are notified of a drop date and this is the date that the domain will again become available for public registration. Placing a backorder with Daily enables you to concentrate on other things while we secure you the domain name you want as soon as our systems tell us it's available to register.

What does it cost?

when you request your backorder you will be charged a non-refundable administration fee of £7.99
Pay nothing until 45 days before your chosen domain expires, you then pay £19.99 plus the Domain cost, you can keep track of the expected date of availability in your control panel
if we are not successful in registering your domain we will refund your registration fee and domain charge. No hassle. Domain Backorder Terms
