Learn how to back order domain names and get that domain you’ve always wanted.
How to back order a domain name:
Have you ever done a search on the Godaddy for example for that domain name just to find out that the domain name has been registered? Well there is still hope, back ordering a domain name basically means that you pay a fee and if the domain is dropped it will be automatically sold to you.
When you back order a domain name you have to pay a fee (see Godaddy for current fees), this fee is non refundable and it will be used to guarantee that the domain will become yours if its dropped.
Backordering domain names is a good idea if you really need that domain name, for example if
someone parked a domain name and you really want it you could get it if the owner decides to let it go.
I have seen a lot of people that back ordered a domain name and a few months after they get it, so you have a pretty good chance of becoming the new owner of that domain name.
Most registrars like Namecheap, Namejet and Snapnames allow you to backorder domain names, this is a great option if you really want to own a domain name and you suspect that the domain name will be deleted.
Now you may as why would you like to pay any of these companies to allow you to buy a domain name that will potentially expire? Well it is simple, domain names are valuable assets and companies are always on the lookout to buy them, if a domain name is about to expire it will likely get registered immediately, back ordering allows you to buy a domain name before it expires, this is where the value comes to you.
Now if you are wondering how to back order amazing domain names that will go up in value I will share a few tips with you that will help you pick the right domain names.
First of all, domains that are Brandable tend to go up in value and they sell really fast, names with a unique sound that are short and have dot com extensions tend to do great in the market, short domain names that have search engine volume also do great and domain names that have a lot of back links are also great for SEO (Search Engine Optimization).
At the end of the day, it all depends on what the plan is for your domain names, if you are looking for quick flip you will want to back order domains that are very liquid, which means that the market has already buyers looking for them, if you are looking to buy and hold domains for a long time you might want to grab domain names with keyword volume that are one or two words long, if you are looking to generate traffic to your website then domains with back links will be on your list.
