When I search for a domain, what does Backorder mean?

A domain backorder is not the same as a normal domain registration.

By placing a backorder, you only order a possible registration request, once this domain has been deleted at the registry at some time.

Once the domain has been deleted, HEXONET will attempt to register the domain for you when it is released by the registry in a practice called drop-catching.

In the case that HEXONET was not able to catch the domain, you will be entitled to full refund / release of your reserved deposit.

You can find a list of TLDs that HEXONET supports for backorders on our website. https://www.hexonet.net/backorder
