When a domain expires, there's a period of a little over 60 days when it is inactive, but can still be renewed by the current owner. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it isn't renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts five days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms take backorders for this type of domain names. If a given name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer immediately after it is deleted and offered to the public, which gives people the opportunity to acquire a short and memorable domain which may have been used by some other person until now. In case 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 is no guarantee that a particular person will have that domain. Nevertheless, employing a backorder service will give you a better chance to end up getting a specific domain than if you try to register it personally.

Domain Backorder in Web Hosting

As we work with an ICANN-authorized company, we offer domain backorders with all web hosting packages, so you won't have to subscribe for a separate account. A separate section in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will enable you to browse all domains which will be deleted in the next days and we have added several filters which will enable you to narrow the search. You can enter any word or phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters, select a specific deletion date or select the extensions that should be shown. Using the filters will save you time and efforts and when you discover a domain name that you want to have, you'll be able to place an order for it with a click. In case we are unable to register the selected name, you will not lose the money you've paid us and you'll be able to order other domain names with it - new registrations or backorders.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers

We offer a backorder service for all of our customers as an authorized registrar company and you can easily take advantage of it through the billing Control Panel of your server. A couple of filters will make it easy to narrow the list of domain names that you see since there are thousands of domains being erased daily. With a couple of clicks you can pick what extensions to be shown, how long the domains should be and when exactly they will be deleted. Furthermore, you can choose to view only names that include dictionary words or a phrase of your choosing, so you could quickly find any name that may interest you. Placing your order takes simply a mouse click and if we can register the wanted domain, you'll be able to manage it through the exact same Control Panel. In any other case, your money won't be lost and you'll be able to use it for any other service - another domain or anything else linked to your dedicated server.
