Frequently Asked Questions

General FAQs:

Updated: 07-July-2020


What is Drop Catching?

Drop Catch refers to a service that registers a domain name which is expiring. Any good domain that is expired and gets dropped, is immediately registered by individuals and registrars within micro-seconds hence making it impossible to be registered by anyone else. iNBackorder comes into play here; with our horsepower of multiple servers 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?

You need to create an account with us in order start backordering your names. Once done and verified, you can start placing your Backorders on our site. We use a pool of registrars and the information about 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 domain with .in/ extensions with us, 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. Don’t worry if you are not technical about these statuses. Our system automatically finds the appropriate status at the time of searching and informs you whether the domain can be available to order or not.


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

The pricing that you see while placing your orders, is the base amount that you need to pay if you order is successful and there were no orders for the same domain. There are no any additional or hidden charges. The amount that you will pay, already includes the drop catch service fees + 1 year of domain registration by default.


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

You do not need to pay anything at the time of submitting your order. Once you win a domain, we send you the Paypal invoice within 24 hours. Once you pay, 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 more than 1 person orders a domain name?

If a domain is caught by iNBackorder which had more than one orders, the domain goes into a semi-private auction and sends an email to all the users who had placed orders for that name, with the link to the auction.

The auction starts at the $25 base price, with $5 increments, and runs 3 days (Exact auction ending time is mentioned on the auction page itself). 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 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 winners. 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 semi-private in the sense that the users who had placed order for that domain before its drop, automatically receive an email with the auction link and they can view and participate in the auctions via their dashboard anytime. To participate in an auction for a domain which was not ordered by you, you can search for it via the regular domain search and if the domain is under an active auction, you will be presented with the auction link to participate.


Can I see a list of all active auctions? Can I participate in any auction if I don’t know the domain name ?

There is no public list of all active auctions. You can participate in an auction only if you had either ordered it before its drop, or you search for it via the domain backorder page.


What is BIN?

A BIN (Buy It Now) is the price at which you can decide to 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, their bid is deleted and the domain is offered to the second highest bidder. If the second highest bidder too passes on it, the domain is passed to the market for an open sale. In addition, the defaulter user is blacklisted at and is charged a penalty fees of $25.


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 60 seconds of the auction, extends the auction time by another 1 minute.


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 participant, the domain by default will be awarded to the first user who had placed order for it for flat $25.


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

No. If a domain had order from only a single user, it will be straight awarded to the user for $25 flat, without going into an auction.
