When a domain expires, there's a time period of a little over 60 days when it is inactive, but may still be renewed by the current user. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it isn't renewed, it gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar companies take backorders for this type of domains. In case a particular name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer as soon as it is deleted and accessible to the public, which gives people an opportunity to get a short and memorable domain which may have been used by some other person until now. In case the domain is really attractive, a couple of companies can try to register it in the same time and since this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no guarantee that a specific person will get that domain name. Nevertheless, using a backorder service will give you a better chance to obtain a specific domain than when you attempt to register it personally.
Domain Backorder in Cloud Hosting
All cloud hosting plans that we offer include a domain backorder service by default as we partner with an ICANN-approved registrar. You can order a domain right from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will discover a list of all the domains planned to be deleted in the next few days. Convenient filters will help you to narrow the list, so rather than going through thousands of names, you can search for a specific phrase, specify the extension as well as the length, or browse only domains 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 obtain the domain that you wish to have, it'll be available in your Control Panel quickly. If we are not successful, the funds for it will be available inside your account and you shall be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals or backorders.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A domain name backorder service is provided with all of our semi-dedicated hosting packages and you will be able to place your order for a selected name from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The complete list of the domain names scheduled to be deleted will be present in a separate section and you will be able to browse all of them or narrow your search with a couple of custom filters that we have added for example a minimum and maximum length, a domain name extension and an exact expiration date. Through a search box, you will also be able to check whether any expired domain has a specific phrase you are interested in. The money for any unsuccessful order won't be lost and will be available as a credit within your account because we can't warrant that we will be able to register each and every domain name that you'd like to have using our backorder registrar channel.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Hosting
As we are an accredited registrar company, we've included a backorder section inside the billing Control Panel of our dedicated servers, so you can employ this service quick and easy without opening a separate account. When you go to this section, you'll find a complete list of the domain names which will become available in the next five days. Using the filters we have added, you can browse domain names that will be erased on a specific date, and pick their extension and length. In addition to that, you can browse by an exact phrase or use a dictionary option that will filter all domain names that are just random groups of letters and numbers. It takes just a mouse click to make a backorder for any domain name from the list and if we register it successfully, you'll be able to control it immediately from the exact same Control Panel. In case someone else takes the desired domain, the funds will be added as credit to your account and will not be lost.
