When a domain expires, there's a period of a little over 60 days when it's not active, but can still be renewed by the current owner. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it's not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts 5 days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms take backorders for such domains. In case a given name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer the second it is deleted and offered to the public, which gives people the chance to get a short and easy to remember domain that may have been employed by some other person until now. In case the domain is quite appealing, a couple 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 guarantee that a specific person will get that domain name. However, using a backorder service will give you a much better chance to acquire a particular domain than when you attempt to register it manually.

Domain Backorder in Cloud Hosting

You'll be able to backorder domains from your Hepsia Control Panel as we partner with an ICANN-approved registrar company and we provide this service as a part of all cloud hosting solutions. Because of this, you won't need an individual account and you will be able to manage the recently purchased domain name as well as the hosting space for it in a single place. The service has its own section in the Control Panel where you will discover all domains scheduled to be deleted in the next 5 days. For a more precise search, you will be able to use several filters that we have added - minimum and maximum amount of characters, domain extension, exact deletion date, etc. In addition, you'll be able to search just for domains that contain dictionary words or set a phrase of your choosing. Acquiring a domain name from the list will take you only a mouse click and if we're unable to register the required name, the money won't be lost and you will be able to use it for domain registrations, renewals and / or backorders in the future.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We have decided to add a domain backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting accounts, so you won't have to register with another platform. The service will permit you to register a domain name and host it in a single place. All the domains scheduled to be erased in the coming days will be placed in the Backorder section of Hepsia and you can browse them from a to z. To narrow the number, you could search by a specific phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters your domain should contain, and choose a particular extension. You will also be able to browse through domain names by the exact date they'll be erased. Since there is no 100% guarantee that we'll be able to register a particular domain, in case our attempt is unsuccessful, the money for that domain name will be available as a credit in your account and will not be wasted.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Web Hosting

In case you have a dedicated server from our company, you shall be able to backorder a domain from the comfort of your billing Control Panel and will never need to register for a different platform since we partner with an ICANN-accredited registrar. An entire section in the Control Panel is dedicated to this particular service and you'll find a long list of all domains scheduled to be erased there. Using the filters which we have added to save you time, you can select to view domain names from a particular date, to set the maximum and minimum length and to pick an extension, thus narrowing the list you will have to go through. You can also enter a particular phrase or select to view domains which include dictionary words and are not just a random mix of letters and numbers. It takes only a click to order a domain from the list and if we're unable to register it before somebody else does that, you won't lose the money as it will be added as a credit to your account.
