When a domain name expires, there is a time period of a little over 60 days when it is inactive, but can still be renewed by the current user. During this time, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it is not renewed, it gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar companies take backorders for such domains. When a specific name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer right after it's deleted and accessible to the general public, which gives people the chance to obtain a short and easy to remember domain which may have been employed 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 is no warranty that a specific person will get that domain name. Nonetheless, employing 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 Web Hosting
All web hosting
plans that we offer come with a domain backorder service as a standard as we partner with an ICANN-licensed domain registrar. You can order a domain right from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will find a list of all domains planned to be erased in the following few days. Helpful filters will help you to narrow this list, so rather than going through thousands of names, you can search for a particular phrase, specify the extension and the length, or browse only domain names that will be deleted on a specific date. The filters will save you considerable time and placing a backorder will take you only one mouse click. If we acquire the domain that you wish to have, it'll be available inside your Control Panel right away. If we aren't successful, the money for it will be available within your account and you will be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals or backorders.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We have decided to include a domain backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all semi-dedicated hosting
accounts, so you won't have to subscribe to another platform. The service will permit you to register a domain and host it in one place. All of the domain names 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 could search by a specific phrase, determine the minimum and maximum number of characters your domain name should contain, and choose a particular extension. You'll also be able to browse domain names by the date they'll be deleted. Since there is no 100% guarantee that we shall be able to register a specific domain name, in case our attempt is not successful, the money for that domain name will be available as a credit inside your account and will not be wasted.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Web Hosting
We provide a backorder service for all our customers as an approved registrar and you will be able to take full advantage of it through the billing Control Panel of your server. A couple of filters will make it easy to narrow the list of domain names which you see because there are thousands of domain names being erased every day. With a couple of clicks of the mouse you'll be able to select what extensions to be shown, how long the domain names should be and when exactly they'll be deleted. In addition, you can choose to view only names which contain dictionary words or a phrase of your choice, so you could quickly find each name which may interest you. Placing an order will take just a mouse click and in case we can register the desired domain name, you shall be able to manage it from the very same Control Panel. If not, your money will not be lost and you'll be able to use it for any other service - another domain or something else related to your dedicated server.
