When a domain name expires, there's a time period of a little over sixty days when it is inactive, but may still be renewed by its current user. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it's not renewed, it goes into the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for these domain names. In case a given name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer the moment it is deleted and accessible to the general public, which gives people the option to get a short and easy to remember domain which may have been employed by another person up until this moment. If the domain is rather attractive, a number of companies could try to register it in the same time and because this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no warranty that a particular person will get that domain. However, using a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to end up getting a specific domain than when you try to register it manually.

Domain Backorder in Website Hosting

All website hosting plans that we offer feature a domain backorder service as a standard as our company is a partner of an ICANN-licensed domain registrar. You will be able to order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will discover a list of all domain names planned to be deleted in the next few days. Helpful filters will allow you to narrow this list, so rather than browsing through thousands of names, you'll be able to search for a particular phrase, specify the extension and the length, or browse only domain names that will be deleted on a specific date. The filters will save you a lot of time and placing a backorder will take you literally one click. In case we acquire the domain name that you wish to have, it will be available inside your Control Panel without delay. In the event that we're not successful, the money for it will be available within your account and you'll be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals or backorders.
