When a domain expires, there is a time period of a little over eight weeks when it is inactive, but may still be renewed by the current user. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it's not renewed, it gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar companies accept backorders for such domain names. In case a given 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 an opportunity to acquire a short and easy to remember domain which may have been employed by some other person until now. In the event that the domain is extremely attractive, several companies could try to register it in the same time and because this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no guarantee that a specific person will get that domain name. Nonetheless, employing a backorder service will give you a much better chance to acquire a specific domain than if you try to register it yourself.

Domain Backorder in Website Hosting

As our company is a partner of an ICANN-certified service provider, we offer domain backorders with all website hosting packages, so you won't have to sign up for an additional account. A separate section in your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel will allow you to browse all of the domain names that will be deleted in the following days and we've added several filters which will allow you to narrow your search. You can type in any word or phrase, set the minimum and maximum number of characters, select an exact deletion date or select the extensions that should be displayed. Using the filters will save you a lot of time and in case you come across a domain that you want to have, you can place your order for it with a mouse click. In case we're not able to register the chosen name, you will not lose the money you've paid and you shall be able to order other domain names with it - new registrations or backorders.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account from our firm, you won't have to open a separate account to backorder a domain name because we offer this service in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. A complete list of all domains scheduled to be deleted will be available to you and you will be able to get any domain name with just a single mouse click. Employing the filters for a particular deletion date, domain length and top-level extension will help you to narrow the search and surf only domain names you are interested in. Furthermore, you'll be able to browse domains which include only dictionary words or a specific phrase of your choice, which will save you a lot of time considering that many hundreds of domains are erased daily. Also, if we are not able to acquire the desired domain, the funds for it will be available as credit for upcoming orders and you won't lose it.

Domain Backorder in VPS Servers

The billing Control Panel of our VPS servers includes a domain backorder section where you will find all the domain names that will be deleted within the following few days. We can provide this service because we work with an ICANN-approved company and we offer very affordable prices. The list inside the Control Panel contains all domain names due to be erased and you could use filters and select the deletion date, minimum and maximum length and also the extension of the domains which will be shown. You'll also be able to narrow the list of domains by specifying if they should contain only dictionary words or a particular word/phrase that you pick. The money for any unsuccessful registration attempt will be deposited in your billing account and you'll be able to use it for another domain or hosting service.

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 never have to register for a different platform because we work with an ICANN-licensed registrar. A separate section in the Control Panel is dedicated to this specific service and you will find a list of all domain names scheduled to be deleted there. Thanks to the filters that we have added for your convenience, you can easily select to view domains from a certain date, to set the maximum and minimum length and to pick an extension, thus narrowing the list you shall need to look through. It's also possible to enter a given phrase or select to view domains which include dictionary words and are not only a random combination of letters and numbers. It takes just a mouse click to order any domain in the list and if we are not able 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.
