When a domain name expires, there is a period of a little over 60 days when it is not active, but could still be renewed by the current owner. During this time, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it is not renewed, it gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar companies take backorders for this type of domains. When a particular name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer the instant it is deleted and offered to the general public, which gives people a chance to acquire a short and easy to remember domain which may have been used by somebody else up until this moment. In the event that the domain is really appealing, a couple of companies could try to register it in the same time and due to the fact that this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no warranty that a specific person will have that domain. Nevertheless, using a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to acquire a specific domain than if you attempt to register it yourself.

Domain Backorder in Web Hosting

You'll be able to backorder domains from your Hepsia Control Panel as we work with an ICANN-authorized registrar company and we offer this service as part of all web hosting plans. This way, you shall not need an individual account and you will be able to manage the recently bought domain along with the hosting space for it in one place. The service has its own section in the Control Panel where you will discover all domains scheduled to be deleted within the next 5 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. What's more, you'll be able to search only for domains which contain dictionary words or specify a phrase of your choice. Obtaining a domain from the list will take you just a click and if we are not able to register the required name, the money won't be wasted and you shall be able to use it for domain registrations, renewals and / or backorders later on.
