FAQ

What is Backorder service?

Domain Backorder service helps you to purchase the domain you are interested in and which currently is unavailable, as soon it gets released again.

Practically, you make a reservation for one or more domain names, which have already been registered by someone else. If these domains expire, you will have the opportunity to register them, as fast as possible.

How much does Backorder service cost?

The total service cost consists of the service managerial cost and the domain's registration fees, as they are specified in our current price list, which you may find in our website.

Can I cancel the service? What could happen in this case?

The service checks for domains expiration and release date and will automatically attempt to aquire the domain for you. In case the service fails (this may be due to the fact that the current domain's owner renewed it for instance), it will be automatically renewed until the domain's new expiration date. If you wish to stop the service after it has been executed at least for the first time, you may ask for it to be canceled. In this case you will be refunded the full amount of your order in credits. If you wish to cancel the service before it attempts to register the domain for you, you will be refinded in credits only the domain registration fees, without the service managerial cost.

Why a domain isn't readily available once expired?

A domain owner has the right to renew the domain name even after the domain name's expiration. More specifically, the .gr domains can be renewed only by their previous owner up to 15 days after the expiration date. These 15 days period is called "quarantine." After the quarantine and if a domain has not been renewed, the domain is released and becomes available again for registration by the public.

Can the use of backorder service guarantee my domain's registration?

Unfortunately, no. The Domain Backorder service is checking for the domain and automatic submits the application for registration as soon as the domain is released. It is likely, however, the domain you wish to register never be released, while being checked. Also, once the domain is free, it is likely other requests from other registrars are submitted for its registration at the same time. Since there is no specific hierarchy, all applications are of equal value, so it is not possible to guarantee which one will be able to register the domain first.

Can a backorder service be use for a domain more than once?

The backorder service can only be used once for each domain. If you use our service for a domain us, no other user in our website can activate it for the same name.
