When a domain expires, there's a period of a little over 2 months when it's not active, 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 gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts 5 days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar companies accept backorders for this type of domain names. If a given name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer the instant it's deleted and offered to the public, which gives people the option to get a short and memorable domain that may have been employed by someone else until now. If the domain is extremely 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 warranty that a specific person will get that domain. However, employing a backorder service will give you a better chance to get a specific domain than if you try to register it manually.

Domain Backorder in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to backorder domains from your Hepsia Control Panel since we work with an ICANN-authorized registrar company and we provide the service as part of all cloud hosting packages. This way, you won't need a separate account and you'll be able to manage the recently bought domain name and the hosting space for it in a single place. The service has its own part in the Control Panel where you will find all domains due to be deleted within the next five days. For a more precise search, you will be able to use several filters that we have added - minimum and maximum number of characters, domain extension, exact deletion date, etc. In addition, you'll be able to search exclusively for domain names which include dictionary words or specify a phrase of your choice. Ordering a domain name from the list will take you just a mouse click and if we are unable to register the required name, your money won't be lost and you'll be able to use it for domain name registrations, renewals and / or backorders in the future.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Web Hosting

As we're an authorized registrar company, we have included a backorder section within the billing Control Panel of our dedicated servers, so that you can employ this service fast and easy without opening another account. When you go to this section, you'll discover a full list of the domain names that will become available in the next five days. When you use the filters we have added, you can browse domain names that'll be deleted on a specific date, and pick their extension and length. In addition, you can search by a specific phrase or use a dictionary option which will filter all domains that are just random groups of letters and numbers. It takes only a mouse click to make a backorder for any domain name from the list and if we register it successfully, you shall be able to control it right away from the same Control Panel. In case somebody else takes the wanted domain, the money will be added as credit to your account and will not be wasted.
