When a domain name expires, there is a time period of a little over two months when it is inactive, but may still be renewed by its current user. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it is not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar companies take backorders for these domain names. When a specific name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer right after it is deleted and accessible to the public, which gives people the chance to get a short and memorable domain that may have been used by another person up until this moment. In the event that the domain is rather appealing, a number of 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 is no guarantee that a particular person will have that domain name. However, employing a backorder service will give you a much better chance to end up getting a particular domain than when you try to register it manually.
Domain Backorder in Website Hosting
Since our company is a partner of an ICANN-authorized service provider, we offer domain name backorders with all website hosting packages, so you will not have to subscribe for another account. A separate section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to browse all of the domain names which will be erased in the next days and we've added several filters which will enable you to narrow the search. You can type in any word or phrase, set the minimum and maximum number of characters, select an exact deletion date or select the extensions that should be shown. Using the filters will save you a lot of time and if you discover a domain name that you would like to have, you'll be able to place an order for it with only a click. In case we are not able to register the selected name, you will not lose the money you have paid us and you'll be able to order other domains with it - new registrations or backorders.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers
We have decided to include a domain name backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all semi-dedicated server accounts, so you won't need to register with a different platform. This service will enable you to register a domain and host it in one place. All domain names scheduled to be erased in the coming days will be placed in the Backorder part of Hepsia and you will be able to browse them from a to z. To reduce the number, you will be able to search by an exact phrase, determine the minimum and maximum number of characters the domain should contain, and select a given extension. You will also be able to search through domain names by the exact date they will be deleted. Because there is no 100% guarantee that we'll be able to register a given domain, in case our attempt is not successful, the funds for that domain name will be available as a credit in your account and will not be lost.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers
A domain name backorder section is available as a part of the billing Control Panel of the dedicated servers that we offer because we are an authorized registrar company. The service will allow you to find good domain names without subscribing for a different platform and you'll be able to make an order with only a mouse click. All domain names that will be deleted in the following days will be listed in that section and you'll be able to set numerous filters to narrow the list and browse only domain names which interest you - minimum/maximum length, exact deletion date, extension, etcetera. You will also be able to browse only domain names that contain dictionary words or ones which contain a phrase that you insert, thus saving the time and efforts to go through numerous random names. In case you order a particular domain name and we cannot register it, we will credit your account and you won't lose your funds.
