When a domain name expires, there is a period of a little over 60 days when it is not active, but can still be renewed by the current user. During this time, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it is not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for this type of domains. When a specific name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer the moment it is deleted and offered to the general public, which gives people the chance to acquire a short and memorable domain that may have been employed by some other person until now. In case the domain is quite 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's no guarantee that a particular person will have that domain name. However, using a backorder service will give you a much better chance to get a specific domain than when you try to register it personally.

Domain Backorder in Cloud Hosting

Since we partner with an ICANN-authorized service provider, we offer domain name backorders with all cloud hosting solutions, so you won't need to register for an additional account. A separate section within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will enable you to browse all the domain names that will be deleted in the next days and we've added several filters which will enable you to narrow your search. You can type in any word or phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters, select a specific deletion date or select the extensions which should be displayed. Employing the filters will save you time and efforts and if you discover a domain that you'd like to have, you will be able to place your order for it with just a mouse click. In case we are unable to register the selected name, you won't lose the money you have paid and you shall be able to order other domains with it - new registrations or backorders.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers

If you have a dedicated server from our company, you will be able to backorder a domain name right from your billing Control Panel and will not need to register for a different platform since we partner with an ICANN-certified registrar. A separate section in the Control Panel is focused on this specific service and you'll find a long list of all domains scheduled to be erased there. Thanks to the filters which we've added to save you time, you will be able to choose to see domains from a certain date, to define the maximum and minimum length and to pick an extension, thus narrowing the list you shall need to browse through. It's also possible to enter a certain phrase or select to view domains which contain dictionary words and are not only a random mix of letters and numbers. It takes only a click to order any domain from the list and in case we're unable to register it before someone else does that, you will not lose the money and it will be added as a credit to your account.
