When a domain name expires, there's a time period of a little over two months when it is inactive, but can still be renewed by its current user. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it isn't renewed, it gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts 5 days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for these domains. When a given name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer immediately after it's deleted and available to the public, which gives people the option to acquire a short and memorable domain which may have been used by some other person until now. In the event that the domain is extremely attractive, a number of companies could try to register it in the same time and since this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no warranty that a particular person will get that domain name. Nonetheless, using a backorder service will give you a much better chance to acquire a specific domain than when you attempt to register it manually.

Domain Backorder in Web Hosting

All web hosting plans that we offer include a domain backorder service as a standard as we partner with an ICANN-authorized domain registrar. You can 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. Helpful filters will allow you to narrow the list, so rather than browsing through thousands of names, you will be able to search for a particular phrase, specify the extension as well as the length, or browse only domain names that will be deleted on a specific date. The filters will save you a considerable amount of time and placing a backorder will take you literally a single mouse click. In case we obtain the domain that you wish to have, it'll be available in your Control Panel instantly. In the event that we aren't successful, the funds 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.
