When a domain name expires, there's a time period of a little over 2 months when it's inactive, but can still be renewed by its 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 five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for this type of domain names. When a particular name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer the instant it's deleted and accessible to the general public, which gives people an opportunity to acquire a short and memorable domain which may have been employed by someone else until now. If the domain is rather attractive, a number of companies could 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 particular person will have that domain. Nonetheless, using a backorder service will give you a much better chance to acquire a specific domain than if you try to register it manually.

Domain Backorder in Shared Hosting

As we work with an ICANN-licensed service provider, we provide domain backorders with all shared hosting packages, so you won't need to subscribe for a different account. An individual section within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will enable you to browse all the domain names which will be deleted in the next days and we've added several filters which will enable you to narrow the search. You can input any word or phrase, set the minimum and maximum number of characters, select a particular deletion date or select the extensions which should be viewable. Using the filters will save you time and efforts and if you find a domain that you'd like to have, you could place an order for it with just a mouse click. If we are not able to register the selected name, you will not lose the money you've paid us and you shall be able to order other domains with it - new registrations or backorders.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you have a dedicated server from our company, you will be able to backorder a domain from the comfort of your billing Control Panel and will never need to register for another platform because we partner with an ICANN-accredited registrar. A separate section in the Control Panel is dedicated to this service and you will find a long list of all domains scheduled to be erased there. Using the filters that we've added to save your efforts and time, you can easily choose to see domain names from a certain date, to set the maximum and minimum length and to select an extension, thus narrowing the list you'll need to browse through. You may also enter a specific phrase or select to view domains that include dictionary words and are not just a random combination of letters and numbers. It takes just a mouse click to order any domain in the list and if we are not able to register it before someone else does that, you will not lose the money and it will be added as a credit to your account.
