When a domain expires, there is a time period of a little over eight weeks when it is inactive, but could still be renewed by the current owner. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it isn't renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts 5 days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar companies take backorders for such domains. In case a given name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer as soon as it's deleted and offered to the public, which gives people the chance to get a short and easy to remember domain that may have been used by another person up until this moment. In case the domain is really attractive, a couple of companies can try to register it in the same time and due to the fact that this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no warranty that a specific person will have that domain name. Nevertheless, using a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to acquire a specific domain than when you try to register it personally.
Domain Backorder in Web Hosting
You'll be able to backorder domains from your Hepsia Control Panel as we partner with an ICANN-approved registrar company and we provide the service as part of all web hosting solutions. That way, you will not need a separate account and you shall be able to take care of the newly obtained domain name along with the hosting space for it in a single place. The service has its own section in the Control Panel where you'll discover all domains due to be deleted in the next five days. For a more precise search, you will be able to use several filters that we have added - minimum and maximum amount of characters, domain extension, exact deletion date, etc. In addition, you'll be able to search only for domain names that include dictionary words or specify a phrase of your choice. Ordering a domain from the list will take you just a click and in case we are not able to register the desired name, the money won't be lost and you will be able to use it for domain registrations, renewals or backorders afterwards.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers
A domain name backorder service is provided with all our semi-dedicated server solutions and you can place an order for a particular name from your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. A complete list of the domains planned to be deleted will be viewable in an individual section and you could browse all of them or narrow the search with several custom filters which we have added which include a minimum and maximum length, a domain extension and an exact expiration date. Via a search box, you will also be able to check whether any expired domain has a specific phrase you are looking for. The funds for any failed order will not be lost and will be present as a credit in your account as we cannot warrant that we will be able to register each domain that you wish to have through our backorder registrar channel.
Domain Backorder in VPS Servers
Because we work with an ICANN-licensed registrar, we offer a domain name backorder service with all our hosting packages, including the VPS servers. You will find the full list of all domain names that will be erased in the following days inside your VPS billing Control Panel and placing an order for any of them will take you just a single click. As the list is very large, we've included a couple of filters which will help you to find the right domain names - choose the domain name extension and the minimum/maximum length, check the domain names which will be deleted on a certain date, view only domain names which include dictionary words or enter a string of characters of your choice. As backordering a domain does not guarantee that we will be able to register it, you'll still be able to use the funds from the order for other services in case that the registration attempt is unsuccessful.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers
In case you have a dedicated server from our company, you'll be able to backorder a domain from the comfort of your billing Control Panel and will never need to sign up for a different platform because our company is a partner of an ICANN-licensed registrar. An entire section in the Control Panel is dedicated to this particular service and you will find a list of all domain names scheduled to be deleted there. Using the filters that we have added to save your efforts and time, you can select to view domains from a certain date, to set the maximum and minimum length and to pick an extension, thus narrowing the list you shall need to go through. In addition, you can enter a given phrase or select to view domains that contain dictionary words and are not just a random combination of letters and numbers. It takes only a mouse click to order any domain in the list and if we are not able to register it before someone else does that, you will not lose the money and it will be added as a credit to your account.
