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 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 which lasts five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms take backorders for such domain names. If a specific name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer the second it's deleted and accessible to the public, which gives people the chance to acquire a short and easy to remember domain that may have been used by someone else up until this moment. In case the domain is rather appealing, a number of companies can try to register it in the same time and because this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no guarantee that a particular person will have that domain name. However, employing a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to obtain a specific domain than when you try to register it manually.
Domain Backorder in Website Hosting
As we work with an ICANN-licensed company, we provide domain name backorders with all website hosting
packages, so you won't have to subscribe for another account. An individual section within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will enable you to browse all domain names that will be deleted in the next days and we've added several filters that will allow you to narrow the search. You will be able to type in any word or phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters, select a particular deletion date or pick the extensions which should be displayed. Using the filters will save you time and efforts and if you come across a domain name that you'd like to have, you could place your order for it with just a click. In case we are unable to register the selected name, you won't lose the money you've paid us and you shall be able to order other domain names with it - new registrations or backorders.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers
We've decided to add a domain name backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all semi-dedicated server
accounts, so you won't need to register with another platform. The service will enable you to register a domain and host it in one place. All domains scheduled to be erased in the following days will be placed in the Backorder part of Hepsia and you can browse them in alphabetical order. To narrow the number, you may search by an exact phrase, set the minimum and maximum number of characters the domain should contain, and select a particular extension. You'll also be able to search through domains by the exact date they'll be deleted. As there is no 100% guarantee that we shall be able to register a specific domain name, if our attempt is not successful, the money for that domain name will be available as a credit inside your account and will not be lost.
Domain Backorder in VPS Servers
The billing Control Panel of our VPS servers
contains a domain name backorder area where you'll find all the domain names that will be erased within the next several days. We can offer this service as our company is a partner of an ICANN-approved company and we offer very inexpensive prices. The list within the Control Panel includes all domain names scheduled to be deleted and you could use filters and select the deletion date, minimum and maximum length and the extension of the domain names that will be shown. You can also narrow the list of domain names by specifying whether they should include only dictionary words or a specific word/phrase of your choice. The money for any unsuccessful registration attempt will be deposited to your billing account and you will be able to use it for any other domain or hosting service.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers
In case you have a dedicated server
from our company, you shall be able to backorder a domain name from the comfort of your billing Control Panel and will not have to register for a different platform as we work with an ICANN-accredited registrar. A separate section in the Control Panel is dedicated to this particular service and you'll find a long list of all domain names scheduled to be erased there. Using the filters which we have added for your convenience, you'll be able to select to view domain names from a particular date, to define the maximum and minimum length and to select an extension, thus narrowing the list you shall need to look through. It's also possible to enter a particular phrase or select to see domains that include dictionary words and are not only a random mix of letters and numbers. It takes only a click to order a domain in the list and if we are not able to register it before somebody else does that, you won't lose your money and it will be added as a credit to your account.
