Frequently Asked Questions

General FAQs:


What is Drop Catching?

Drop Catching refers to a service that registers a domain name which is expiring. Any worthy domain that is expired and dropped, is immediately registered by individuals and registrars within micro-seconds, making it impossible to be registered by common people.

iNBackorder comes into play here; with our experience, technical framework and connections, we register your favorite .in domain for you at the exact moment it drops.


How do I start Backordering with you? What is Needed?

Just create an account at iNBackorder, and you can start placing your Backorders. We use a pool of registrars and any additional information about acquiring/managing your caught domains would be sent to your email once your ordered domain is successfully registered.


Can I order any .in domain with you?

You can order any India extension domain with .in/ extensions which is dropping within next 35 days. The domain must have a “Redemption Period”, “Pending Delete” or “Pending Delete: Scheduled For Release” status in the whois. You don’t need to bother about these technicalities though; Our automated system will find the appropriate status at the time of searching itself and informs you whether the domain can be backordered or not.


Are there any other charges? Do I need to pay anything additional for domain registration?

The price that you see ($25), is the price itself that you need to pay if you order is successful and if there were no other orders for that domain. There are no any additional or hidden charges. The amount that you pay, already includes the drop catch service + free 1 year of domain registration.


Do I need to pay at the time of placing order or after the successful catch? How do I make payment?

You do not need to pay anything at the time of placing the order. Once you win a domain, the system sends you the Paypal invoice immediately which needs to be cleared within 24 hours. Upon payment, we push the domain to your account with complete ownership rights.


Are my backorders private?

Yes, your backorders are completely private. No information about users or their orders is disclosed or shared by us to any third party.

Auction FAQs:


What happens when multiple people order a domain name?

If a domain is caught by iNBackorder having more than one orders, the domain goes into an auction. The system emails the users who had placed orders for that name, with the link to the auction.

The auction starts at $25 base price, with $5 increments, and runs about 7 days (Exact auction ending time is mentioned on the auction page). The highest bidder towards the end of the auction wins the domain and has to pay the winning amount within 24 hours. Once the payment is cleared, the domain is moved to customer’s account at the respective registrar.


Are there any requirements to participate in the auctions?

Users need to have a minimum balance of $25 in their iNBbackorder wallet in order to place bids on any auction. This is to prevent the cases of defaulting and non-genuine bidders. Users can instantly top-up their wallet with $25 by Paypal from the auction page itself. This is a fully usable money which can be used to make any payments at iNBackorder. You can also request a refund of wallet balance anytime.


Are the auctions public? Can I participate in any auction?

The auctions are public in the sense that the users who had placed order for that domain before its drop, receive the auction link. They can also view the links of their auctions from their account dashboard. To participate in an auction for a domain which was not ordered by you, you can search for it on the homepage and if the domain is under an active auction, you will be presented with its auction.


Do you have a public list of all auctions on your website? Can I participate in any auction if I don’t know the domain name ?

There is no public list of all auctions on our website as of now. You can participate in an auction only if you had either ordered it before its drop, or you know the name already (or via external marketing promotions) and search for it via the domain backorder page. However, we are introducing some selected ones at “Featured Auctions”, which will be posted on homepage from time to time.


What is BIN?

A BIN (Buy It Now) is the price at which you can purchase the domain anytime during the auction, and it will immediately finish the auction, making you the winner of the auction.


What happens if the highest bidder fails to make the payment?

If the highest bidder fails to make the payment within the stipulated time,  the domain is re-auctioned. In addition, the defaulter user is blacklisted at with a monetary penalty.


What if someone makes sudden last bid during the final moments of an auction?

The auctions have anti bid-sniping feature incorporated within them. Any bid made in the last 2 minutes of the auction, extends the auction time by another 2 minutes.


How Can I keep track of my auctions?

You can view all the auctions for domains you have orders or bid on, via your “My Auctions” page from your My Account section. Also note that all auctions end on 10 PM IST.


What happens if an auction ends without any bid?

Although this is rare, but if any auction ends without any bids being placed by any user, the domain by default will be awarded to the first user who had placed order for it.


What if I am the only user to order a domain? Does it still go in the auction?

No. If a domain was ordered by a single user only, it will straight be awarded to the user for $25 flat, without going in an auction.
