About dropped.uk

Dropped provide a domain name backorder service for .UK domain names.

Our service allows you to backorder any suspended .uk, .co.uk, .org.uk or .me.uk domain name free of charge. We then monitor the domain name and attempt to register it for you the second it becomes available. You only pay for the domain name if we're successful.

To book a domain name, it must be suspended. Typically, domain names are suspended 60 days after expiration. Bookings for suspended domain names are taken on a first come, first served basis, and only one booking per domain name is permitted.

For transparency, we'll tell you at the point of booking if another user has backordered the domain name.

Our service is flexible and designed for one-off, occasional and bulk bookings.


If we're successful, you will need to make a payment through our control panel. Once paid, you'll be able to transfer the domain name to your chosen Registrar by updating the TAG through our control panel.

You can choose to make a larger payment, and in return we'll offer a cheaper per-catch fee. We'll also increase the number of domains you're allowed to backorder.
