When a domain name expires, there is a time period of a little over 2 months when it's not active, but can still be renewed by its 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 when ICANN-accredited registrar companies take backorders for this type of domains. In case a specific name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer as soon as it is deleted and offered to the general public, which gives people the option to get a short and easy to remember domain that may have been used by another person up to now. In case the domain is very appealing, several 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 particular person will have that domain name. However, employing a backorder service will give you a much better chance to end up getting a particular domain than when you attempt to register it personally.
Domain Backorder in Shared Website Hosting
Since our company is a partner of an ICANN-certified company, we provide domain name backorders with all shared website hosting
packages, so you won't have to subscribe for a different account. An individual section within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will enable you to browse all the domains that will be deleted in the following days and we have added several filters which will enable you to narrow your search. You will be able to enter any word or phrase, set the minimum and maximum number of characters, select a specific deletion date or choose the extensions which should be viewable. Using the filters will save you efforts and time and when you come across a domain that you'd like to have, you'll be able to place an order for it with a mouse click. In case we're unable to register the selected name, you won't lose the money you've paid and you will be able to order other domain names with it - new registrations or backorders.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We have decided to add a domain name backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting
accounts, so you will not need to sign up for a different platform. The service will enable you to register a domain name and host it from a single place. All domain names planned to be deleted 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 could search by a particular phrase, set the minimum and maximum number of characters your domain name should contain, and select a specific extension. You will also be able to search through domain names by the date they will be erased. Since there is no 100% guarantee that we'll be able to register a given domain, if our attempt is not successful, the money for that domain will be available as a credit within your account and will not be wasted.
Domain Backorder in VPS Hosting
We provide a backorder service with all virtual private server
packages as we're an accredited registrar and we have our own backorder channel. You'll be able to employ this service from your billing Control Panel where you will find all domains that will be on the market in the next several days. For your convenience, you can browse domains which will be deleted on a particular date, pick what extension they should have and how long they should be or if they should feature only dictionary words. You can also search by a specific word or a phrase, so in case a good domain name that you would like to have is available, you shall be able to find it easily. Unlike a lot of other companies, in case that someone else registers the domain name that you have ordered, we will credit your account and you shall be able to use this money for any kind of other service.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Web Hosting
In case you have a dedicated server
from our firm, you'll be able to backorder a domain directly from your billing Control Panel and will never need to sign up for another platform since we work with an ICANN-accredited registrar. An entire section in the Control Panel is focused on this particular service and you will find a long list of all domains scheduled to be erased there. Thanks to the filters which we have added to save you time, you'll be able to select to view domain names from a specific date, to set the maximum and minimum length and to pick an extension, thus narrowing the list you'll have to browse through. It's also possible to enter a specific phrase or select to view domains that include dictionary words and are not only a random combination of letters and numbers. It takes only a mouse click to order a domain in the list and if we're unable to register it before somebody else does that, you won't lose the money and it will be added as a credit to your account.
