When a domain name expires, there is a time period of a little over sixty days when it is inactive, but could still be renewed by its current owner. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it is not renewed, it goes into the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for these domains. In case a given name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer immediately after it's deleted and accessible to the public, which gives people the opportunity to obtain a short and easy to remember domain which may have been used by somebody else until now. In the event that the domain is really attractive, a number of companies can try to register it in the same time and because this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no warranty that a particular person will get that domain. Nevertheless, using a backorder service will give you a much better chance to get a specific domain than if you try to register it personally.

Domain Backorder in Hosting

As we partner with an ICANN-licensed company, we provide domain backorders with all hosting packages, so you won't have to sign up for another account. An individual section inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will enable you to browse all domains which will be deleted in the following days and we've added several filters which will enable you to narrow the search. You could type in any word or phrase, specify 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 lots of time and in case you discover a domain name that you'd like to have, you'll be able to place an order for it with only a click. If we're unable to register the selected name, you won't lose the money you've paid us and you'll be able to order other domains with it - new registrations or backorders.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We have decided to include a domain name backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel that is available with all semi-dedicated hosting accounts, so you won't have to sign up for a separate platform. The service will enable you to register a domain name and host it in a single place. All the domains scheduled to be deleted in the coming days will be listed in the Backorder section of Hepsia and you can browse them in alphabetical order. To narrow the number, you will be able to search by an exact phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters your domain name should contain, and select a specific extension. You'll also be able to search through domain names by the date they will be deleted. As there is no 100% guarantee that we will be able to register a particular domain name, in case our attempt is unsuccessful, the funds for that domain name will be available as a credit inside your account and will not be wasted.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Hosting

As we are an authorized registrar, we've included a backorder section inside the billing Control Panel of our dedicated servers, so that you can take advantage of this service fast and easy without having to open another account. When you go to this section, you will discover a full list of the domain names which will be available in the next five days. Thanks to the filters we have added, you can browse domain names which will be erased on a given date, and select their extension and length. In addition to that, you can browse by a specific phrase or use a dictionary option that will filter all domains which are just random groups of letters and numbers. It takes only a click to make a backorder for any domain from the list and if we register it successfully, you shall be able to control it right away from the very same Control Panel. In case somebody else takes the required domain, the money will be added as credit to your account and will not be wasted.
