When a domain name expires, there's a time period of a little over eight weeks when it is not active, but could still be renewed by its current user. During this time, 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 when ICANN-accredited registrar companies accept backorders for this kind of domain names. In case a specific name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer immediately after it's deleted and available to the public, which gives people the chance to acquire a short and memorable domain that may have been used by another person up to now. In the event that the domain is very attractive, several companies could try to register it in the same time and due to the fact that this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no guarantee that a particular person will have that domain. However, employing a backorder service will give you a better chance to get a specific domain than if you attempt to register it manually.
Domain Backorder in Website Hosting
Since our company is a partner of an ICANN-accredited service provider, we provide domain backorders with all website hosting solutions, so you won't have to subscribe for a different account. A separate section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to browse all the domains that will be erased in the next days and we have added several filters which will allow you to narrow the search. You could input any word or phrase, set 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 lots of time and if you find a domain that you would like to have, you'll be able to place an order for it with just a click. In case we are not able to register the chosen name, you will not lose the money you have paid and you'll be able to order other domains with it - new registrations or backorders.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers
A domain backorder service is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server plans and you'll be able to place your order for a particular name from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The full list of the domains planned to be erased will be viewable in a separate section and you'll be able to browse all of them or narrow your search using a couple of custom filters which we've added for instance a minimum and maximum length, a domain name extension and an exact expiration date. Via a search box, you will also be able to check if any expired domain has a specific phrase you're interested in. The funds for any failed order won't be lost and will be present as a credit within your account as we can't warrant that we will be able to register each domain that you wish to have via our backorder registrar channel.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers
As we are a certified registrar, we have included a backorder section inside the billing Control Panel of our dedicated servers, so you can take advantage of this service quick and easy without having to open some other account. When you go to this section, you'll see a complete list of the domain names that will become available in the following five days. Thanks to the filters we've added, you can browse domain names which will be deleted on a given date, and select their extension and length. In addition to that, you can search by an exact phrase or use a dictionary option that will filter all domain names which are just random groups of letters and numbers. It takes only a click to place a backorder for any domain name from the list and if we register it successfully, you shall be able to control it directly from the same Control Panel. In the event that somebody else takes the desired domain, the funds will be added as credit to your account and won't be wasted.
