When a domain expires, there's a time period of a little over 2 months when it is inactive, but could still be renewed by its current owner. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it isn't renewed, it goes into the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts 5 days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar companies take backorders for this type of domains. If a particular name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer immediately after it's deleted and available to the general public, which gives people the opportunity to obtain a short and easy to remember domain that may have been employed by another person up to now. If the domain is quite appealing, 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 warranty that a specific person will have that domain name. Nonetheless, employing a backorder service will give you a better chance to obtain a specific domain than if you try to register it manually.

Domain Backorder in Web Hosting

All web hosting packages that we offer include a domain backorder service by default as our company is a partner of an ICANN-licensed domain registrar. You can order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will find a list of all domains planned to be erased in the next few days. Convenient filters will enable you to narrow this list, so instead of searching 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 domains which will be erased on a given date. The filters will save you a considerable amount of time and placing a backorder will take you only a single click. If we obtain the domain name that you want to have, it'll be available inside your Control Panel quickly. In case we aren't successful, the funds for it will be available inside your account and you'll be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals or backorders.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account from our firm, you will not have to open a separate account to be able to backorder a domain name because we offer this service within the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. A full list of all domains scheduled to be deleted will be readily available and you shall be able to get any domain name with a single click. Using the filters for a specific deletion date, domain length and top-level extension will allow you to narrow the search and surf only domains you are attracted to. You will also be able to browse domains which contain only dictionary words or a particular phrase of your choice, which can save you quite a lot of time because many hundreds of domains are deleted every single day. Of course, if we're not able to get the desired domain name, the money for it will be present as credit for future orders and you will not lose it.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers

Because we're an authorized registrar company, we have included a backorder section in the billing Control Panel of our dedicated servers, so you can take advantage of this service quick and easy without having to open a separate account. When you go to this section, you will find a complete list of the domain names that will become available in the next five days. Using the filters we have added, you can browse domain names that will be deleted on a particular date, and select their extension and length. In addition, you can search by an exact phrase or use a dictionary option that will filter all domain names which are just random groups of letters and numbers. It takes just a mouse click to make a backorder for any domain from the list and if we register it successfully, you will be able to control it immediately from the same Control Panel. In the event that somebody else takes the desired domain, the funds will be added as credit to your account and will not be wasted.
