When a domain name expires, there's a period of a little over 60 days when it is not active, but could still be renewed by its current owner. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it isn't renewed, it goes into the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar companies accept backorders for this kind of domains. When a given name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer as soon as it's deleted and offered to the general public, which gives people a chance to obtain a short and memorable domain that may have been used by somebody else up until this moment. If the domain is really attractive, several companies could try to register it in the same time and because this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no guarantee that a specific person will get that domain name. However, employing a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to get a specific domain than if you attempt to register it personally.

Domain Backorder in Cloud Hosting

All cloud hosting plans that we provide include a domain backorder service as standard as we partner with an ICANN-certified registrar. You may order a domain right from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will see a list of all the domains scheduled to be erased in the following few days. Useful filters will help you to narrow this list, so rather than going through thousands of names, you could search for a specific phrase, specify the extension along with the length, or browse only domain names that will be erased on a specific date. The filters will save you a considerable amount of time and placing a backorder will take you only a single click. In case we get the domain name that you wish to have, it will be available inside your Control Panel right away. If we aren't successful, the money for it will be available inside your account and you'll be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals or backorders.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account from our company, you won't have to open a different account to backorder a domain name as we provide this service within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. A complete list of all domains scheduled to be erased will be at your disposal and you'll be able to order any domain with a single mouse click. Employing the filters for an exact deletion date, domain length and top-level extension will allow you to narrow the search and surf only domains you are attracted to. Furthermore, you'll be able to browse domains that include only dictionary words or a specific phrase of your choice, which can save you quite a lot of time since many hundreds of domains are deleted daily. Also, if we're not able to obtain the desired domain name, the money for it will be present as credit for future orders and you won't lose it.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers Hosting

A domain name backorder section is available as a part of the billing Control Panel of the dedicated servers which we offer as we are an accredited registrar company. The service will enable you to find good domains without subscribing for a different platform and you'll be able to place an order with only a click. All domain names which will be erased in the following days will be listed in that section and you will be able to set many different filters to narrow the list and browse only domain names that interest you - minimum/maximum length, the date of deletion, extension, etc. In addition, you'll be able to browse only domain names which contain dictionary words or ones which contain a phrase that you enter, thus saving the time and efforts to go through a lot of random names. If you order a particular domain name and we can't register it, we will credit your account and you will not lose your funds.
