When a domain name expires, there is a period of a little over two months when it is not active, but can still be renewed by the current user. During this time, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it is not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts 5 days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar companies accept backorders for these domain names. In case a specific name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer the moment it is deleted and available to the general public, which gives people the option to obtain a short and easy to remember domain which may have been employed by some other person up to now. If the domain is really attractive, a number of companies can try to register it in the same time and because 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 end up getting a particular domain than when you attempt to register it yourself.
Domain Backorder in Shared Hosting
You'll be able to backorder domains from your Hepsia Control Panel as our company is a partner of an ICANN-accredited registrar company and we offer this service as a part of all shared hosting
solutions. This way, you shall not need a separate account and you shall be able to manage the newly purchased domain name along with 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 scheduled to be erased in the following 5 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 contain dictionary words or specify a phrase of your choosing. Getting a domain from the list will take you only a click and in the event that we are unable to register the required name, your money will not be wasted and you will be able to use it for domain registrations, renewals and / or backorders in the future.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Being an accredited registrar, we provide domain backorders with each and every semi-dedicated hosting
account and you could take full advantage of this service via your Hepsia Control Panel, not through some other platform. All domain names which will be deleted soon will be listed in a separate section and you will be able to search through all of them or set a custom filter so as to reduce the number of domain names you will need to look at. You will be able to select the particular date of deletion, the domain name extension, the minimum and maximum amount of letters, or search by an exact phrase or a dictionary word. Using filters will save you a lot of efforts and will allow you to search for a good domain fast and easy. If we don't register the name you'd like to have, you can still use the money for it for another service.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Hosting
As we are an approved registrar, we have included a backorder section inside the billing Control Panel of our dedicated servers
, so that you can take full advantage of this service fast and easy without having to open another account. When you go to this section, you'll find the whole list of the domain names that will be available in the following five days. Using the filters we have added, you can browse domain names that will be deleted on a given 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 domains that are just random groups of letters and numbers. It takes just a click to place a backorder for any domain from the list and if we register it successfully, you will be able to control it directly from the exact same Control Panel. In case somebody else takes the required domain, the money will be added as credit to your account and will not be wasted.
