When a domain name expires, there is a period of a little over sixty days when it's not active, but can still be renewed by the current owner. During this time, 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 5 days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar companies accept backorders for these domains. In case a given name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer the instant it's deleted and accessible to the public, which gives people an opportunity to obtain a short and easy to remember domain which may have been employed by someone else up to now. If the domain is rather appealing, several companies could 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. Nevertheless, using a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to end up getting a specific domain than if you attempt to register it manually.

Domain Backorder in Website Hosting

Since we partner with an ICANN-certified company, we provide domain backorders with all website hosting solutions, so you will not need to register for another account. A separate section inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will allow you to browse all of the domain names which 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 an exact deletion date or pick the extensions which should be shown. Employing the filters will save you lots of time and in case you come across a domain that you want to have, you'll be able to place your order for it with just a click. In case we're not able to register the chosen name, you won't lose the money you have paid and you will be able to order other domains with it - new registrations or backorders.
