When a domain name expires, there's a time period of a little over 2 months when it is not active, but can still be renewed by its 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 this kind of domain names. If a specific name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer the instant it is deleted and accessible to the public, which gives people an opportunity to obtain a short and memorable domain that may have been employed by some other person until now. In the event that the domain is rather appealing, a couple of companies could try to register it in the same time and since this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no guarantee that a particular person will get that domain name. Nonetheless, employing a backorder service will give you a better chance to acquire a specific domain than when you attempt to register it yourself.

Domain Backorder in Website Hosting

All website hosting packages that we provide come with a domain backorder service by default as we partner with an ICANN-approved domain registrar. You could order a domain right from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will see a list of all the domains scheduled to be deleted in the next several days. Useful filters will help you to narrow this list, so rather than checking out thousands of names, you could search for a specific phrase, specify the extension as well as the length, or browse only domains which will be erased on a specific date. The filters will save you lots of time and placing a backorder will take you literally one mouse click. In case we get the domain that you want to have, it'll be available inside your Control Panel quickly. If we aren't 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 and / or backorders.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers

We have decided to include a domain backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all semi-dedicated server accounts, so you won't have to subscribe to another platform. This service will permit you to register a domain name and host it in one place. All the domains planned to be erased in the following days will be placed in the Backorder part of Hepsia and you'll be able to browse them in alphabetical order. To narrow the number, you will be able to search by a specific phrase, determine the minimum and maximum number of characters the domain name should contain, and choose a given extension. You'll also be able to search through domains by the exact date they will be erased. As there is no 100% guarantee that we shall be able to register a specific domain name, in case our attempt is unsuccessful, the funds for that domain will be available as a credit within your account and will not be wasted.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers

We offer a backorder service for all of our customers as a licensed registrar company and you can easily take full advantage of it via the billing Control Panel of your dedicated server. Several filters will enable you to narrow the list of domain names which you see because there are thousands of domain names being deleted every single day. With a few clicks you'll be able to choose what extensions to be shown, how long the domain names should be and when exactly they will be deleted. Furthermore, you can choose to see only names which include dictionary words or a phrase of your choice, so you could easily discover every name that may interest you. Placing your order will take just a mouse click and if we are able to register the particular domain, you'll be able to manage it via the very same Control Panel. Otherwise, your money will not be wasted and you'll be able to use it for any other service - another domain or something else linked to your dedicated server.
