When a domain name expires, there is a period of a little over 2 months when it's not active, but may still be renewed by the current owner. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it is not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar companies take backorders for such domains. In case a particular name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer right after it's deleted and offered to the public, which gives people the opportunity to get a short and easy to remember domain that may have been used by some other person up to now. In case the domain is really appealing, a number of companies may 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 specific person will get that domain. Nonetheless, using a backorder service will give you a much better chance to acquire a particular domain than if you attempt to register it personally.

Domain Backorder in Shared Website Hosting

Since we partner with an ICANN-certified company, we offer domain backorders with all shared website hosting plans, so you will not have to sign up for a different account. An individual section inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will allow you to browse all domains that will be erased in the following days and we have added several filters that will allow you to narrow your search. You will be able to enter any word or phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters, select a specific deletion date or select the extensions that should be viewable. Using the filters will save you a lot of time and if you come across a domain name that you'd like to have, you will be able to place your order for it with a click. In case we are not able to register the selected name, you won't lose the money you have paid and you shall be able to order other domain names with it - new registrations or backorders.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers

Being an accredited registrar, we offer domain backorders with each and every semi-dedicated server account and you'll be able to take advantage of this service from your Hepsia Control Panel, not through some other platform. All domain names which will be deleted soon will be listed in a separate section and you will be able to search all of them or set a custom filter in order to decrease the number of domains you'll need to look at. You will be able to choose the exact date of deletion, the domain extension, the minimum and maximum number of characters, or search by a certain phrase or a dictionary word. The filters will help you save a lot of efforts and will allow you to search for a good domain name fast and easy. In case we don't register the name you'd like to have, you can still use the money for it for another service.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers

Since we are a certified registrar, we have included a backorder section within the billing Control Panel of our dedicated servers, so you can take full advantage of this service quick and easy without having to open some other account. When you go to this section, you will find a complete list of the domain names that will become available in the next five days. When you use the filters we've added, you can browse domains which will be erased on a specific date, and choose their extension and length. In addition, you can search by a specific phrase or use a dictionary option which will filter all domains that are just random groups of letters and numbers. It takes only a mouse click to place a backorder for any domain name from the list and if we register it successfully, you will be able to control it right away from the exact same Control Panel. If someone else takes the required domain, the funds will be added as credit to your account and will not be lost.
