When a domain expires, there is a time period of a little over two months when it is not active, but can still be renewed by the current user. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it isn't renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for this type of domains. When a given name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer right after it's deleted and offered to the public, which gives people the option to get a short and easy to remember domain which may have been employed by another person up to now. In the event that the domain is really attractive, a couple of companies could 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 specific person will get that domain. Nonetheless, employing a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to obtain a particular domain than if you try to register it personally.

Domain Backorder in Shared Hosting

As we partner with an ICANN-certified service provider, we provide domain name backorders with all shared hosting plans, so you won't need to sign up for a different account. An individual section in your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel will enable you to browse all the domains that will be deleted in the next days and we have added several filters that will enable you to narrow the search. You may type in any word or phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters, select a particular deletion date or choose the extensions that should be displayed. Using the filters will save you a lot of time and if you find a domain that you'd like to have, you could place your order for it with just a mouse click. If we're not able to register the selected name, you won't lose the money you have paid and you'll be able to order other domain names with it - new registrations or backorders.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers

A domain name backorder service is available with all of our semi-dedicated server packages and you have the option to place an order for a specific name from your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. A full list of the domain names scheduled to be deleted will be viewable in an individual section and you will be able to browse all of them or filter the search through a couple of custom filters that we have added such as a minimum and maximum length, a domain name extension and an exact expiration date. Using a search box, you'll also be able to check if any expired domain has a specific phrase you are interested in. The money for any failed order will not be lost and will be present as a credit in your account since we cannot guarantee that we will be able to register every single domain name that you want to have via our backorder registrar channel.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers

If you have a dedicated server from our company, you'll be able to backorder a domain name right from your billing Control Panel and will not have to subscribe for a different platform because we partner with an ICANN-approved registrar. A section in the Control Panel is dedicated to this service and you will find a list of all domain names scheduled to be deleted there. Using the filters that we have added to save your efforts and time, you will be able to choose to see domains from a specific date, to set the maximum and minimum length and to select an extension, thus narrowing the list you shall need to go through. You can also enter a given phrase or select to see domains which contain dictionary words and are not only a random combination of letters and numbers. It takes just a mouse click to order any domain from the list and if we're unable to register it before someone else does that, you won't lose your money and it will be added as a credit to your account.
