When a domain expires, there is a time period of a little over eight weeks when it is inactive, but could still be renewed by the current owner. During this time, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it's not renewed, it goes into the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts 5 days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms take backorders for such domain names. When a particular name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer as soon as it's deleted and offered to the public, which gives people the opportunity to get a short and easy to remember domain that may have been employed by someone else up until this moment. If the domain is very appealing, a couple of companies can try to register it in the same time and since this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no warranty that a particular person will have that domain name. Nonetheless, using a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to obtain a specific domain than when you try to register it yourself.
Domain Backorder in Shared Hosting
All shared hosting packages that we provide feature a domain backorder service as a standard as we partner with an ICANN-licensed registrar. You may order a domain right from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will find a list of all domain names scheduled to be erased in the next several days. Useful filters will help you to narrow this list, so instead of searching through thousands of names, you can search for an exact phrase, specify the extension as well as the length, or browse only domains which will be erased on a specific date. The filters will save you lots of time and placing a backorder will take you just one mouse click. If we get the domain that you'd like to have, it will be available in your Control Panel right away. If we aren't successful, the money for it will be available inside your account and you will be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals or backorders.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers
A domain name backorder service is available with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can place your order for a specific name from your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. A full list of the domains scheduled to be deleted will be viewable in an individual section and you will be able to browse all of them or filter the search using a few custom filters that we've added for example a minimum and maximum length, a domain name extension and an exact expiration date. Using a search box, you'll also be able to check if any expired domain has a specific phrase you are looking for. The funds for any unsuccessful order will not be lost and will be present as a credit within your account since we can't guarantee that we'll be able to register each and every domain name that you want to have through our backorder registrar channel.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers
A domain name backorder section is available inside the billing Control Panel of the dedicated servers that we offer because we are an authorized registrar company. The service will help you to discover good domains without subscribing for a different platform and you shall be able to place an order with only a click. All domain names which will be erased in the coming days will be listed in that section and you'll be able to set numerous filters so as to narrow the list and browse only domains that interest you - minimum/maximum length, the actual deletion date, extension, etc. Also, you'll be able to browse only domain names which contain dictionary words or ones that contain a phrase that you enter, thus saving the time and efforts to search through lots of random names. If you order a given domain and we cannot register it, we'll credit your account and you will not lose your funds.
