When a domain expires, there's a period of a little over 60 days when it's not active, but may still be renewed by its current user. During this time, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it's not renewed, it gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar companies accept backorders for these domains. In case a specific name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer right after it is deleted and available to the public, which gives people the option to acquire a short and easy to remember domain that may have been used by another person up until this moment. In case the domain is rather appealing, 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's no guarantee that a specific person will have that domain. However, employing a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to obtain a particular domain than if you attempt to register it personally.

Domain Backorder in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to backorder domains from your Hepsia Control Panel because we partner with an ICANN-approved registrar company and we offer the service as a part of all shared website hosting plans. This way, you won't need an individual account and you will be able to manage the recently obtained domain name and also the hosting space for it in a single place. The service has its own part in the Control Panel where you'll discover all domains scheduled 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 number of characters, domain extension, exact deletion date, etc. In addition, you'll be able to search only for domains which contain dictionary words or specify a phrase of your choosing. Purchasing a domain name from the list will take you just a click and in the event that we're unable to register the required name, your money will not be lost and you will be able to use it for domain registrations, renewals and / or backorders later on.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers

We have decided to add a domain name backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel which is available with all semi-dedicated server accounts, so you will not need to subscribe to a different platform. The service will permit you to register a domain name and host it in a single place. All domains planned to be erased in the following days will be placed in the Backorder part of Hepsia and you can browse them from a to z. To narrow the number, you could search by a particular phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters the domain should contain, and choose a given extension. You'll also be able to browse through domain names by the date they'll be deleted. Because there is no 100% guarantee that we shall be able to register a particular domain name, in case our attempt is not successful, the funds for that domain will be available as a credit inside your account and will not be lost.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers

As we are an approved registrar company, we've included a backorder section in the billing Control Panel of our dedicated servers, so you can take advantage of this service fast and easy without having to open another account. When you go to this section, you will discover the full list of the domains that will be 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 browse by a specific phrase or use a dictionary option that will filter all domain names that are just random groups of letters and numbers. It takes only a click to make 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 someone else takes the wanted domain, the money will be added as credit to your account and won't be lost.
