When a domain name expires, there's a time period of a little over 2 months when it is inactive, but can still be renewed by its current user. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it is not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms take backorders for this type of domain names. In case a particular name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer the instant it's deleted and offered to the general public, which gives people a chance to acquire a short and memorable domain which may have been employed by some other person until now. In case the domain is quite attractive, several companies can try to register it in the same time and since this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no warranty that a specific person will have that domain. Nevertheless, using a backorder service will give you a better chance to acquire a particular domain than when you try to register it personally.
Domain Backorder in Website Hosting
All website hosting
packages that we provide include a domain backorder service as standard as we partner with an ICANN-authorized domain registrar. You may order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will see a list of all the domain names planned to be deleted in the following several days. Handy filters will enable you to narrow this list, so instead of browsing through thousands of names, you will be able to search for a certain 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 a considerable amount of time and placing a backorder will take you just one click. In case we obtain the domain that you would like to have, it will be available inside your Control Panel instantly. If we aren't successful, the funds for it will be available within your account and you'll be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals and / or backorders.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers
A domain name backorder service is available with all our semi-dedicated server
solutions and you can place your order for a specific name from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. A full list of the domains scheduled to be deleted will be present in an individual section and you can browse all of them or filter the search with a few custom filters that we have added such as a minimum and maximum length, a domain extension and an exact expiration date. Through a search box, you'll also be able to check if any expired domain contains a specific phrase you are interested in. The funds for any unsuccessful order won't be lost and will be available as a credit inside your account as we can't guarantee that we will be able to register each and every domain name that you wish to have via our backorder registrar channel.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers
We provide a backorder service for all of our customers as an authorized registrar company and you'll be able to take advantage of it through the billing Control Panel of your server. A couple of filters will enable you to narrow the list of domain names which you see because there're thousands of domain names being deleted every single day. With several mouse clicks you can pick what extensions to be viewable, how long the domain names should be and when exactly they'll be erased. In addition, you can choose to see only names that include dictionary words or a phrase of your choice, so you can easily discover every name which may interest you. Placing your order will take only a click and if we are able to register the domain name, you will be able to control it through the same Control Panel. In any other case, your money won't be wasted and you shall be able to use it for any other service - another site or any other thing associated with your dedicated server.
