When a domain expires, there is a time period of a little over two months when it is inactive, but could still be renewed by its current user. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it isn't renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for these domain names. If a particular name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer immediately after it's deleted and offered to the general public, which gives people the opportunity to obtain a short and memorable domain which may have been employed by someone else up to now. In the event that the domain is rather appealing, several companies can 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 get that domain name. Nonetheless, using a backorder service will give you a much better chance to acquire a specific domain than when you try to register it personally.
Domain Backorder in Cloud Website Hosting
All cloud website hosting
plans that we offer include a domain backorder service as a standard as our company is a partner of an ICANN-authorized registrar. You can order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will find a list of all domain names planned to be erased in the following few days. Helpful filters will allow you to narrow this list, so rather than browsing through thousands of names, you could search for a particular phrase, specify the extension along with the length, or browse only domain names that will be erased on a specific date. The filters will save you a lot of time and placing a backorder will take you only a single mouse click. In case we get the domain name that you want to have, it'll be available inside your Control Panel quickly. In case we aren't 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
A domain backorder service is available with all of our semi-dedicated hosting
packages and you'll be able to place an order for a particular name from the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. The complete list of the domains planned to be deleted will be present in an individual section and you'll be able to browse all of them or filter the search through a couple of custom filters which we have added like a minimum and maximum length, a domain extension and an exact expiration date. Through a search box, you will also be able to check whether any expired domain contains a specific phrase you're interested in. The money for any unsuccessful order won't be lost and will be available as a credit in your account because we cannot guarantee that we will be able to register each and every domain that you wish to have through our backorder registrar channel.
Domain Backorder in VPS
As we partner with an ICANN-licensed registrar, we offer a domain name backorder service for all our web hosting plans, which includes the virtual private servers
. You'll find the full list of all domain names which will be erased in the next days in your VPS billing Control Panel and making an order for any of them will take you a single click. Because the list is quite large, we've included a couple of filters that will enable you to find good domain names - choose the domain extension and the minimum/maximum length, check the domains which will be erased on a certain date, view only domain names which include dictionary words or enter a string of characters of your choosing. As backordering a domain doesn't guarantee that we'll be able to register it, you will still be able to use the funds from the order for other services in case that the registration attempt is not successful.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Hosting
If you have a dedicated server
from our company, you shall be able to backorder a domain from the comfort of your billing Control Panel and will not have to subscribe for a different platform since we partner with an ICANN-approved registrar. An entire section in the Control Panel is focused on this particular service and you'll find a long list of all domains scheduled to be erased there. Using the filters that we've added for your convenience, you could select to see domains from a certain date, to set the maximum and minimum length and to select an extension, thus narrowing the list you'll have to browse through. It's also possible to enter a specific phrase or select to see domains which include dictionary words and are not only a random combination of letters and numbers. It takes just a click to order any domain in the list and in case we are unable to register it before someone else does that, you will not lose the money and it will be added as a credit to your account.
