    Backorder domain?

    There's a domain that I want and its expiring early next year. Is there some service that will register this domain for me automatically if it is not renewed?

    Thanks in advance.

    GoDaddy and Name.com offer a backorder service. However, it will suck if the person renews the domain (especially if it's set on auto-renew).

    GoDaddy is probably the most popular backorder service. They charge a fee for it though. But chances are that the current owner will renew it if it's a good domain. And if it's good and he doesn't renew it it's likely that it will get picked up by a drop catcher like NameJet. In that case you won't get it through GoDaddy.

    backorders may get a bit expensive ... what I suggest is that note the date of the week before it is about to expire, add an entry in google calendar ... Google C will mail you a reminder about it .... .
