When a domain expires, there's a time period of a little over 60 days when it's inactive, but can still be renewed by its current user. During this time, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it's not renewed, it gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts 5 days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for such domains. In case a particular name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer right after it is deleted and available to the public, which gives people a chance to obtain a short and memorable domain which may have been used by someone else until now. If the domain is very appealing, several 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 is no guarantee that a particular person will have that domain. However, employing a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to acquire a particular domain than when you attempt to register it personally.
Domain Backorder in Website Hosting
As our company is a partner of an ICANN-certified company, we provide domain backorders with all website hosting plans, so you will not need to subscribe for another account. A separate 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 which will allow you to narrow your search. You could input any word or phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters, select a specific deletion date or select the extensions which should be viewable. Employing the filters will save you efforts and time and in case you come across a domain that you want to have, you could place your order for it with only a click. If we are not able to register the selected name, you will not lose the money you've paid and you will be able to order other domains with it - new registrations or backorders.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you won't have to open a separate account to be able to backorder a domain as we offer this service within the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. The full list of all domain names due to be deleted will be at your disposal and you shall be able to acquire any domain with a single mouse click. Using the filters for a particular deletion date, domain length and top-level extension will enable you to narrow the search and surf only domain names you are attracted to. In addition, you'll be able to browse domains that include only dictionary words or a certain phrase of your choice, which will save you a lot of time because thousands of domains are erased every single day. Of course, if we are unable to get the desired domain, the money for it will be available as credit for upcoming orders and you won't lose it.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers
We offer a backorder service for all our customers as an authorized registrar company and you can take advantage of it through the billing Control Panel of your server. A couple of filters will allow you to narrow the list of domains which you see because there are thousands of domain names being erased on a daily basis. With a couple of clicks you can pick what extensions to be viewable, how long the domains should be and when exactly they will be deleted. In addition, you can select to view only names that contain dictionary words or a phrase of your choice, so you could quickly find any name which may interest you. Placing an order will take just a click and in case we can register the domain, you will be able to control it from the same Control Panel. If not, your money will not be wasted and you will be able to use it for any other service - another site or any other thing associated with your dedicated server.
