When a domain name expires, there is a time period of a little over eight weeks when it's not active, but could still be renewed by the current owner. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it is not renewed, it gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar companies accept backorders for such domains. If a specific name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer the moment it's deleted and accessible to the general public, which gives people the chance to acquire a short and memorable domain which may have been employed by somebody else up to now. In case 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 guarantee that a specific person will get that domain. Nevertheless, using 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 Cloud Hosting

All cloud hosting packages that we provide include a domain backorder service as a standard as we partner with an ICANN-authorized domain registrar. You may order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will find a list of all the domain names scheduled to be deleted in the following several days. Helpful filters will help you to narrow the list, so instead of searching through thousands of names, you could search for an exact phrase, specify the extension along with the length, or browse only domains that will be deleted on a specific date. The filters will save you lots of time and placing a backorder will take you just a single click. If we acquire the domain name that you want to have, it will be available inside your Control Panel instantly. In case we aren't successful, the money for it will be available within your account and you'll be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals or backorders.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account from our firm, you won't have to open an individual account to backorder a domain name due to the fact that we provide this service within the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. The complete list of all domains due to be deleted will be readily available and you'll be able to order any domain with just a single mouse click. Using the filters for an exact deletion date, domain length and top-level extension will allow you to narrow the search and browse only domain names you're attracted to. You'll also be able to browse domains which include only dictionary words or a certain phrase of your choice, which can save you quite a lot of time since thousands of domains are deleted every single day. Of course, if we are not able to acquire the desired domain name, the funds for it will be present as credit for future orders and you will not lose it.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers

If you have a dedicated server from our firm, you will be able to backorder a domain name right from your billing Control Panel and will never have to register for another platform since we work with an ICANN-licensed registrar. An entire section in the Control Panel is focused on this specific service and you will find a list of all domains scheduled to be deleted there. Thanks to the filters that we've added to save your efforts and time, you will be able to choose to see domain names from a particular date, to define the maximum and minimum length and to pick an extension, thus narrowing the list you'll have to go through. You can also enter a certain phrase or select to see domain names which include dictionary words and are not only a random mix of letters and numbers. It takes only a mouse click to order a domain in the list and if we're unable to register it before somebody else does that, you will not lose your money and it will be added as a credit to your account.
