When a domain expires, there is a time period of a little over sixty days when it's inactive, but could still be renewed by its current owner. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it isn't renewed, it gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar companies take backorders for these domains. In case a particular name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer the instant it is deleted and offered to the public, which gives people the opportunity to obtain a short and memorable domain that may have been employed by another person up until this moment. In the event that the domain is quite attractive, 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's no guarantee that a particular person will get that domain. However, employing a backorder service will give you a better chance to acquire a specific domain than when you try to register it personally.
Domain Backorder in Shared Hosting
As our company is a partner of an ICANN-licensed company, we provide domain backorders with all shared hosting packages, so you won't need to subscribe for an additional account. An individual section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to browse all of the domains that will be erased in the following days and we have added several filters that will allow you to narrow the search. You may type in any word or phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters, select a specific deletion date or select the extensions that should be displayed. Using the filters will save you a lot of time and if you come across a domain that you'd like to have, you'll be able to place your order for it with a mouse click. In case we are unable to register the chosen name, you won't lose the money you've paid and you shall be able to order other domain names with it - new registrations or backorders.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers
We've decided to add a domain name backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all semi-dedicated server accounts, so you won't need to register with another platform. This service will allow you to register a domain and host it in a single place. All the domain names planned to be deleted in the coming days will be placed in the Backorder part of Hepsia and you can browse them from a to z. To reduce the number, you will be able to search by a specific phrase, determine the minimum and maximum number of characters the domain name should contain, and choose a given extension. You'll also be able to browse through domains by the exact date they will be deleted. Because 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 VPS Servers
We provide a backorder service with all of our VPS server plans as we are a certified registrar and we have our very own backorder channel. You can employ this service from your billing Control Panel where you will find all domains that will be available on the market in the following few days. To save time, you can browse domains which will be erased on a certain date, choose what extension they should have and how long they must be or whether they should feature only dictionary words. You can also search by a particular word or a phrase, so if a proper domain that you would like to have is on the market, you shall be able to find it easily. Unlike many other companies, in case that somebody else registers the domain that you have ordered, we will credit your account and you shall be able to use the money for any other service.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers
As we're an approved registrar company, we've included a backorder section within the billing Control Panel of our dedicated servers, so that you can employ this service fast and easy without having to open a separate account. When you go to this section, you will see a complete list of the domain names that will become available in the next five days. When you use the filters we've added, you can browse domains that will be deleted on a specific date, and choose their extension and length. Furthermore, you can search by a specific phrase or use a dictionary option which will filter all domains which are just random groups of letters and numbers. It takes only a click to place a backorder for any domain from the list and if we register it successfully, you will be able to manage it immediately 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 lost.
