New domain backordering service – KQW.com

 

Hello and Assalamo Alaikum,

Recently I came to know about new domain backordering service KQW.com. Looking at the domain, I thought the service will be from Chinese company and I wasn’t disappointed 😉

One of their representatives contacted me and asked me to try their service just few days back and since that time I have placed several backorders with them. So far no success but I have seen them catching few domains.

What I have learned so far is you may place backorder but will need to pay upfront which isn’t what I really like. One good thing is they offer private auctions and don’t let others to jump in at the very last minute. They need to improve their language interface because when I see the English version of their site, I still find Chinese language written all over. For example visiting the auction rules and FAQs page.

If you surf their site, you will find many .cc domains running in auction and it shows they are good at catching .cc domains than .com one’s. So far they are offering backordering service for .com, .net, .org, .cc, .tv, .biz, .me domains.

As they seems to be new in domain backordering, still they have more than 20 registrars offering a backorder service for expired domains.

KQW.com are quite affordable as they only charge as low as $20 per domain name. Their interface is simple and user-friendly.

Feel free to give them a try and let us know if you are successful in grabbing any domain with them.

Backordering .cc domain with Hexonet.net

About 3 years back I joined Hexonet.net as they were just going to start taking backorders for .cc domains. I read their FAQ’s and found that if there are two or more person the domain will be auctioned. I thought that’s fine and I backordered one domain, made upfront payment. The domain was successfully grabbed by them. Later I found there were only two bidders including me so I thought it’s good and I will get the domain at bargain but I was surprised to see when they put up that domain at GoDaddy Auctions which was open for everyone to bid and can be the new owner of the domain!

This really frustrated me. I contacted Hexonet, the company’s CSO replied back and tried to make me understand that currently there is no auction platform of their own so they are auctioning at GoDaddy Auctions. I told them it’s fine but you must put only two of us and make it private auction which he rejected. I asked them to refund my money back and refused to place any more backorders in future. That domain went over US$1,000 whereas I could have easily got for US$200-US$300 if done privately between the auction participants only.

After a year or so they came up with their auction platform but I will never place any more backorders with them. I am not sure how their current auction platform is but I would never recommend anyone to give backorders through them. There are better places for .cc backordering like DomainMonster.com and Name.com which are having more successful ratio compared to Hexonet.net

Have you experienced with Hexonet.net? What are your thoughts and suggestions?
