Every year we celebrate the professional American football championship (which we cannot say by name without an army of scary-efficient lawyers swooping down on us with cease and desist letters) with great zeal. This year is no different. Again, discounted domain names are on the menu, but this year we’d raised the steaks. No, no stakes. Not steaks. Oh, I’d love a steak.

When a coworker lives | A tribute to James Moorman
Customer support is by far the most thankless job in the domain name industry. Maybe in any industry. What we know from domain support is that any time that phone rings or an email shows up—which is several times per minute—the breadth of what the issue could be is Grand Canyon deep and wide. It’s a chasm that stretches from typos, to email, to security, to some little nuance yet to be discovered in the light years between website settings and website reality.
Everything you need to know about domain backorders
*As of October 2016, backorders can only be placed on domains that have a set drop date.
You have the perfect idea for a domain name. But when you gleefully head to Name.com and type it into the search bar, something terrible happens—you find out that someone has already registered your dream domain name, leaving it sadly out of your grasp.
Life is cruel.
But don’t lose hope! Just as new domains are registered every day, existing domains sometimes expire without being renewed by the original owner—leaving it free for you to snatch up the moment it hits the market once more. Name.com’s backorder process allows you to place a tentative hold on a domain name that is close to expiration and increase your chances of securing it if it is not renewed by the current owner.
