When a domain name expires, there's a period of a little over 2 months when it's not active, but can still be renewed by its current user. During this time, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it is not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts 5 days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms take backorders for such domain names. If a particular name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer the second it's deleted and accessible to the general public, which gives people the option to get a short and easy to remember domain that may have been used by somebody else until now. If the domain is really 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 guarantee that a specific person will have that domain. Nevertheless, using a backorder service will give you a better chance to acquire a specific domain than if you attempt to register it yourself.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers

A domain backorder service is available with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you have the option to place your order for a particular name from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The complete list of the domains planned to be erased will be viewable in a separate section and you could browse all of them or filter your search with a couple of custom filters that we've added for instance a minimum and maximum length, a domain extension and an exact expiration date. Via a search box, you can also check if any expired domain contains a specific phrase you're interested in. The money for any failed order won't be lost and will be available as a credit inside your account as we cannot guarantee that we will be able to register every single domain name that you would like to have using our backorder registrar channel.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers

As we are an authorized registrar company, we've included a backorder section within the billing Control Panel of our dedicated servers, so you can employ this service quick and easy without having to create another account. When you go to this section, you will find the complete list of the domain names that will be available in the following 5 days. Thanks to the filters we've added, you can browse domain names that'll be erased on a particular date, and pick their extension and length. In addition to that, you can search by an exact phrase or use a dictionary option which will filter all domains that are just random groups of letters and numbers. It takes only a click to place a backorder for any domain name from the list and if we register it successfully, you shall be able to manage it directly from the very same Control Panel. In case somebody else takes the wanted domain, the money will be added as credit to your account and will not be lost.
