When a domain name expires, there is a period of a little over two months when it's not active, but could still be renewed by the current user. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it is not renewed, it gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts 5 days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms take backorders for this type of domains. When a particular name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer the moment it is deleted and available to the public, which gives people the opportunity to obtain a short and easy to remember domain which may have been employed by some other person up to now. In the event that the domain is extremely appealing, a number of companies may try to register it in the same time and since this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no warranty that a particular person will get that domain name. However, employing a backorder service will give you a better chance to acquire a particular domain than if you attempt to register it manually.
Domain Backorder in Cloud Hosting
We provide a domain backorder service with all of our cloud hosting packages and you can take advantage of it from the Hepsia Control Panel. For your convenience, you'll be able to customize the list of domains which you see by extension, exact deletion date and length, so you won't have to browse through thousands of domain names to find whether a suitable one shall be available soon enough. You can also look for a specific word or a phrase in the domain list. In case we can register the wanted domain name for you, it'll be listed together with all other domains which you have here and you shall be able to control it just as easily. We offer the service at very competitive prices compared to other registrars and in case we're not able to get a domain for you, your money will be available in your account, so you will be able to use it for other domains or web hosting services.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers
We've decided to add a domain name backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts, so you shall not have to subscribe to a separate platform. The service will permit you to register a domain and host it in a single place. All the domain names scheduled to be deleted in the following days will be listed in the Backorder section of Hepsia and you'll be able to browse them from a to z. To narrow the number, you will be able to search by a particular phrase, set the minimum and maximum number of characters your domain should contain, and select a specific extension. You'll also be able to browse domain names by the exact date they'll be erased. Since there is no 100% guarantee that we will be able to register a specific domain, 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 lost.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers
If you have a dedicated server from our firm, you shall be able to backorder a domain name directly from your billing Control Panel and will not have to subscribe for another platform since our company is a partner of an ICANN-licensed registrar. A separate section in the Control Panel is focused on this specific service and you will find a list of all domains scheduled to be erased there. Thanks to the filters that we have added to save you time, you'll be able to select to view domain names from a particular date, to set the maximum and minimum length and to select an extension, thus narrowing the list you shall need to browse through. You may also enter a certain phrase or select to see domain names which contain dictionary words and are not just a random combination of letters and numbers. It takes just a mouse click to order a domain from the list and in case we are not able to register it before someone else does that, you won't lose the money as it will be added as a credit to your account.
