When a domain expires, there is a time period of a little over 60 days when it's 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's not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts five days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for these domain names. When a given name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer the second it is deleted and available to the general public, which gives people a chance to get a short and easy to remember domain which may have been employed by another person up until this moment. If the domain is quite attractive, several companies can try to register it in the same time and because this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no warranty that a particular person will get that domain name. However, using a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to obtain a specific domain than when you try to register it personally.

Domain Backorder in Cloud Hosting

You'll be able to backorder domains from your Hepsia Control Panel as we work with an ICANN-authorized registrar company and we offer this service as a part of all cloud hosting solutions. That way, you will not need a separate account and you will be able to take care of the newly purchased domain name and the hosting space for it in one place. The service has its own part in the Control Panel where you'll discover all domains due to be deleted within the next 5 days. For a more precise search, you will be able to use several filters that we have added - minimum and maximum amount of characters, domain extension, exact deletion date, etc. You will also be able to search exclusively for domain names that contain dictionary words or set a phrase of your choice. Obtaining a domain from the list will take you only a click and in the event that we are not able to register the required name, your money will not be wasted and you will be able to use it for domain name registrations, renewals or backorders afterwards.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A domain backorder service is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you will be able to place your order for a particular name from your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. The complete list of the domains scheduled to be erased will be available in a separate section and you could browse all of them or narrow the search using several custom filters which we have added like a minimum and maximum length, a domain extension and an exact expiration date. Using a search box, you can also check whether any expired domain contains a specific phrase you are looking for. The money for any failed order will not be lost and will be present as a credit in your account since we cannot guarantee that we will be able to register each domain that you would like to have via our backorder registrar channel.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Web Hosting

In case you have a dedicated server from our company, you will be able to backorder a domain directly from your billing Control Panel and will not have to sign up for a different platform since our company is a partner of an ICANN-certified registrar. A section in the Control Panel is dedicated to this specific service and you'll find a long list of all domain names scheduled to be deleted there. Using the filters which we've added to save you time, you can select to view domain names from a certain date, to set the maximum and minimum length and to pick an extension, thus narrowing the list you'll need to look through. You may also enter a specific phrase or select to see domain names that include dictionary words and are not only a random mix of letters and numbers. It takes just a mouse click to order any domain in the list and in case we are not able to register it before somebody else does that, you won't lose the money as it will be added as a credit to your account.
