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 its current owner. During this time, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it isn't renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar companies take backorders for this kind of domain names. In case a given name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer immediately after it is deleted and offered to the general public, which gives people the option to obtain a short and memorable domain that may have been used by some other person until now. If the domain is quite appealing, a number of companies could 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 specific person will have that domain. Nonetheless, employing a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to obtain a specific domain than if you attempt to register it yourself.
Domain Backorder in Cloud Web Hosting
As our company is a partner of an ICANN-authorized service provider, we provide domain backorders with all cloud web hosting
plans, so you won't have to subscribe for an additional account. A separate section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to browse all domains that will be deleted in the following days and we have added several filters which will allow you to narrow the search. You will be able to enter any word or phrase, set the minimum and maximum number of characters, select an exact deletion date or pick the extensions which should be displayed. Using the filters will save you time and efforts and in case you come across a domain name that you'd like to have, you can place an order for it with just a mouse click. If we are unable to register the chosen name, you won't 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 Hosting
Being a licensed registrar, we provide domain backorders with each and every semi-dedicated hosting
account and you'll be able to take advantage of this service via your Hepsia Control Panel, not through an outside platform. All domain names which will be deleted soon will be listed in an individual section and you will be able to browse through all of them or set a custom filter to reduce the number of domain names you'll need to go through. You will be able to select the specific deletion date, the domain name extension, the minimum and maximum number of characters, or search by a particular phrase or a dictionary word. These filters will save you a lot of efforts and will enable you to search for a good domain name fast and easy. In case we do not register the name you'd like to have, you can still use the money for it for any other service.
Domain Backorder in VPS Web Hosting
Since we partner with an ICANN-approved registrar, we offer a domain name backorder service for all our hosting packages, which includes the virtual private servers
. You will find the whole list of all domains that will be erased in the following days in your VPS billing Control Panel and making an order for any of them will take you just a single click. Since the list is quite large, we have added a couple of filters which will make it easier to find good domains - specify the domain name extension and the minimum/maximum length, check the domains which will be deleted on a given date, view only domains that include dictionary words or enter a string of characters of your choosing. As backordering a domain doesn't guarantee that we'll be able to register it, you will still be able to use the money from the order for different other services in case that the registration attempt is not successful.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Since we are a licensed registrar company, we've included a backorder section in the billing Control Panel of our dedicated servers
, so that you can employ this service quick and easy without having to create some other account. When you go to this section, you will find the complete list of the domain names which will become available in the next 5 days. Thanks to the filters we've added, you can browse domains which will be deleted on a particular date, and pick 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 just a mouse click to place a backorder for any domain name from the list and if we register it successfully, you shall be able to manage it right away from the exact same Control Panel. If someone else takes the wanted domain, the money will be added as credit to your account and won't be lost.
