A backorder is a request to acquire a currently registered domain when that domain becomes available again because it is deleted or expires. Typically, if a registered domain is not renewed, it is eventually deleted and made available to the general public. Note that once you place a backorder, Pool.com will try to get that domain whenever it becomes available for registration even if that occurs years after you have placed your backorder. Please ensure that your backorder list is up-to-date and delete any backorders you no longer want.
To backorder a domain, simply enter the domain in one of the backorder boxes located on the Pool.com website and click on the Backorder button. Please note, you must have an account created at Pool.com and be logged in to place your backorder. If you try to place a backorder when you are not logged in, the system will prompt you to login first.
