When a domain name expires, there's a time period of a little over 2 months when it is not active, but may 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 gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms take backorders for this type of domain names. When a given name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer the second it is deleted and accessible to the general public, which gives people a chance to get a short and easy to remember domain which may have been employed by somebody else up to now. If the domain is very appealing, a number of companies can 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 get that domain name. Nevertheless, employing a backorder service will give you a much better chance to acquire a specific domain than if you try to register it personally.
Domain Backorder in Cloud Hosting
All cloud hosting plans that we offer include a domain backorder service as standard as we partner with an ICANN-approved registrar. You'll be able to order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will see a list of all domain names scheduled to be erased in the following few days. Convenient filters will help you to narrow this list, so instead of browsing through thousands of names, you'll be able to search for a certain phrase, specify the extension as well as the length, or browse only domain names that will be deleted on a particular date. The filters will save you a lot of time and placing a backorder will take you just a single click. If we obtain the domain name that you wish to have, it'll be available in your Control Panel instantly. In case we are not successful, the funds for it will be available inside your account and you will be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals or backorders.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Being a certified registrar, we offer domain backorders with each and every semi-dedicated hosting account and you'll be able to take advantage of this service via your Hepsia Control Panel, not through a separate platform. All domains which will be erased soon will be listed in an individual section and you will be able to browse all of them or set a custom filter in order to lower the number of domain names you'll need to look at. You will be able to pick the exact date of deletion, the domain extension, the minimum and maximum number of characters, or search by a particular phrase or a dictionary word. The filters will save you a lot of efforts and will enable you to search for a good domain fast and easy. If we do not register the name you'd like to have, you will still be able to use the money for it for another service.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Hosting
If you have a dedicated server from our company, you'll be able to backorder a domain name right from your billing Control Panel and will not have to sign up for a different platform as we work with an ICANN-licensed registrar. A section in the Control Panel is dedicated to this particular service and you'll find a long list of all domains scheduled to be erased there. Thanks to the filters which we have added to save your efforts and time, you can select to see domains from a particular date, to set the maximum and minimum length and to select an extension, thus narrowing the list you shall have to browse through. You may also enter a given phrase or select to see domain names which contain dictionary words and are not just a random mix of letters and numbers. It takes only a mouse click to order a domain in the list and in case we are not able to register it before someone else does that, you will not lose the money as it will be added as a credit to your account.
