When a domain expires, there's a period of a little over two months when it's inactive, but may 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 goes into the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar companies accept backorders for these domain names. When a given name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer the second it is deleted and offered to the general public, which gives people the opportunity to obtain a short and memorable domain which may have been used 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 since this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no warranty that a specific person will have that domain. Nevertheless, employing a backorder service will give you a much better chance to acquire a particular domain than if you attempt to register it yourself.

Domain Backorder in Cloud Hosting

Since our company is a partner of an ICANN-accredited service provider, we offer domain name backorders with all cloud hosting packages, so you will not need to sign up for a different account. An individual section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to browse all the domains which will be erased in the following days and we've added several filters which will allow you to narrow your search. You will be able to enter any word or phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters, select an exact deletion date or pick the extensions that should be displayed. Using the filters will save you efforts and time and if you find a domain that you would like to have, you can place an order for it with only a mouse click. In case we're not able to register the chosen name, you won't lose the money you have paid and you'll be able to order other domain names with it - new registrations or backorders.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers

We have decided to add a domain backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all semi-dedicated server accounts, so you shall not need to sign up for another platform. This service will allow you to register a domain name and host it in one place. All the domains scheduled to be deleted in the following days will be listed in the Backorder part of Hepsia and you can browse them in alphabetical order. To narrow the number, you will be able to search by an exact phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters the domain name should contain, and choose a given extension. You will also be able to search through domains by the exact date they will be deleted. Since there is no 100% guarantee that we will be able to register a particular domain name, in case our attempt is unsuccessful, the funds for that domain will be available as a credit within your account and will not be wasted.

Domain Backorder in VPS Servers

Because our company is a partner of an ICANN-approved registrar, we offer a domain backorder service for all our internet hosting packages, including the VPS servers. You will find a full list of all domains that will be deleted in the following days inside your VPS billing Control Panel and placing an order for any of them will take you one click. As the list is pretty large, we've added a few filters which will help you to find the right domains - select the domain name extension and the minimum/maximum length, check the domain names which will be erased on a given date, view only domains that contain dictionary words or enter a string of characters of your choosing. As backordering a domain does not guarantee that we'll be able to register it, you will still be able to use the money from the order for other services in case that the registration attempt is unsuccessful.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers

If you have a dedicated server from our company, you'll be able to backorder a domain name from the comfort of your billing Control Panel and will never need to subscribe for a different platform as we partner with an ICANN-accredited registrar. A section in the Control Panel is focused on this service and you'll find a list of all domains scheduled to be erased there. Thanks to the filters that we have added to save your efforts and time, you could choose to view domain names from a certain date, to set the maximum and minimum length and to pick an extension, thus narrowing the list you'll need to go through. In addition, you can enter a particular 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 click to order a domain in the list and if 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.
