When a domain expires, there is a time period of a little over two months when it is inactive, but could still be renewed by its 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 which lasts five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar companies accept backorders for this kind of domains. In case a given name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer the second it's deleted and offered to the general public, which gives people a chance to obtain a short and easy to remember domain that may have been used by another person up to now. If the domain is extremely appealing, several companies could try to register it in the same time and since this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no warranty that a particular person will have that domain name. Nevertheless, employing a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to obtain a particular domain than if you attempt to register it personally.

Domain Backorder in Shared Hosting

Since we partner with an ICANN-certified company, we offer domain name backorders with all shared hosting solutions, so you will not need to subscribe for another account. An individual section within your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel will enable you to browse all of the domain names which will be erased in the next days and we have added several filters that will allow you to narrow your search. You can enter any word or phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters, select a particular deletion date or choose the extensions which should be viewable. Using the filters will save you a lot of time and in case you find a domain that you would like to have, you will be able to place your order for it with only a mouse click. In case we are unable to register the chosen name, you will not lose the money you've paid and you'll be able to order other domain names with it - new registrations or backorders.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated hosting account from our firm, you will not have to open a separate account to be able to backorder a domain as we provide this service in the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. A full list of all domain names due to be erased will be available and you will be able to buy any domain name with a single mouse click. Employing the filters for a specific deletion date, domain length and top-level extension will allow you to narrow the search and surf only domain names you are attracted to. Last, but not least you'll be able to browse domain names that include only dictionary words or a specific phrase of your choice, which could save you quite a lot of time considering that many hundreds of domains are erased every day. Also, if we're unable to get the desired domain, the funds for it will be available as credit for upcoming orders and you won't lose it.
