When a domain name expires, there's a time period of a little over 2 months when it is not active, but may still be renewed by the current owner. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it's not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar companies take backorders for these domain names. When a particular name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer as soon as it is deleted and offered to the general public, which gives people an opportunity to obtain a short and easy to remember domain that may have been used by another person up to now. In the event that the domain is rather 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's 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 attempt to register it personally.

Domain Backorder in Hosting

Since our company is a partner of an ICANN-authorized company, we offer domain name backorders with all hosting plans, so you won't have to sign up for an additional account. A separate section inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to browse all the domains that will be deleted in the following days and we've added several filters that will enable you to narrow your search. You will be able to input any word or phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters, select a particular deletion date or pick the extensions that should be shown. Employing the filters will save you a lot of time and when you discover a domain that you'd like to have, you could place your order for it with only a mouse click. In case we are not able to register the chosen name, you won't lose the money you have paid and you'll be able to order other domain names with it - new registrations or backorders.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We have decided to add a domain backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting accounts, so you won't need to sign up for a separate platform. This service will allow you to register a domain name and host it from a single place. All domains planned to be deleted in the coming days will be placed in the Backorder section of Hepsia and you can browse them from a to z. To reduce the number, you will be able to search by an exact phrase, set the minimum and maximum number of characters your domain name should contain, and choose a particular extension. You'll also be able to browse domains by the exact date they will be erased. Because there is no 100% guarantee that we shall be able to register a given domain name, in case our attempt is unsuccessful, the funds for that domain will be available as a credit inside your account and will not be lost.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Hosting

A domain backorder section is available in the billing Control Panel of the dedicated servers that we provide since we are an authorized registrar company. The service will enable you to discover good domain names without subscribing for another platform and you'll be able to make an order with simply a click. All domain names which will be erased in the coming days will be listed in that section and you shall be able to set a variety of filters to narrow the list and browse only domains that interest you - minimum/maximum length, the actual deletion date, extension, etc. You will also be able to browse only domains which contain dictionary words or ones that contain a phrase that you enter, thus saving your time and efforts to browse through lots of random names. In case you order a given domain name and we cannot register it, we will credit your account and you will not lose your money.
