I'm trying to purchase a domain name that I like. I noticed that the domain is about to expire and has only been registered for a year now, Nothing really shows on the page when going to the site. It's not a very common domain name but I like it and wanted to know if back-ordering it notifies the current owner that someone else back-ordered their domain?
This may vary depending on the registrar but I know that GoDaddy doesn't inform to current owner of this. They do, however, contact the current owner with a lot of emails trying to get them to renew the domain.
