When a domain expires, there's a time period of a little over 2 months when it's not active, but can still be renewed by the current owner. During this time, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it isn't renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts 5 days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar companies accept backorders for such domain names. When a specific name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer immediately after it is deleted and offered to the general public, which gives people the option to obtain a short and easy to remember domain which may have been employed by somebody else up until this moment. If the domain is very appealing, a couple of companies may try to register it in the same time and due to the fact that this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no guarantee that a specific person will get that domain name. Nonetheless, using a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to acquire a specific domain than if you try to register it personally.

Domain Backorder in Cloud Web Hosting

All cloud web hosting plans that we provide include a domain backorder service by default as we partner with an ICANN-authorized registrar. You may order a domain right from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will discover a list of all domains scheduled to be deleted in the next few days. Helpful filters will enable you to narrow this list, so instead of checking out thousands of names, you can search for a specific phrase, specify the extension as well as the length, or browse only domain names which will be erased on a specific date. The filters will save you lots of time and placing a backorder will take you literally one click. In case we get the domain that you would like to have, it will be available inside your Control Panel without delay. In the event that we're not 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 Servers

We've decided to add a domain name backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all semi-dedicated server accounts, so you shall not have to sign up for a separate platform. This service will permit you to register a domain and host it from a single place. All the domains scheduled to be deleted in the following days will be placed in the Backorder part of Hepsia and you can browse them from a to z. To narrow the number, you may search by an exact phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters the domain name should contain, and choose a specific extension. You will also be able to browse through domains by the date they will be erased. As there is no 100% guarantee that we shall be able to register a given domain name, if our attempt is not successful, the funds for that domain name will be available as a credit within your account and will not be lost.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers

Because we're an accredited registrar company, we have included a backorder section within the billing Control Panel of our dedicated servers, so you can take advantage of this service quick and easy without having to create another account. When you go to this section, you'll discover a complete list of the domains that will become available in the next 5 days. When you use the filters we've added, you can browse domains that'll be deleted on a particular date, and choose their extension and length. What's more, you can browse by an exact phrase or use a dictionary option which will filter all domain names which are just random groups of letters and numbers. It takes just a mouse click to place a backorder for any domain name from the list and if we register it successfully, you shall be able to control it directly from the exact same Control Panel. If someone else takes the wanted domain, the funds will be added as credit to your account and won't be lost.
