When a domain expires, there's a period of a little over eight weeks when it's inactive, but could still be renewed by the current user. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it is not renewed, it goes into the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts five days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for such domains. In case a given name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer immediately after it is deleted and accessible to the general public, which gives people the opportunity to acquire a short and memorable domain that may have been used by another person up to now. If the domain is quite attractive, several companies may try to register it in the same time and because this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no warranty that a particular person will get that domain. Nevertheless, using a backorder service will give you a much better chance to obtain a particular domain than if you try to register it yourself.

Domain Backorder in Shared Hosting

As we partner with an ICANN-certified service provider, we provide domain backorders with all shared hosting solutions, so you will not have to subscribe for a different account. A separate section in your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel will enable you to browse all domain names which will be erased in the next days and we've added several filters that will enable you to narrow your search. You'll be able to input any word or phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters, select an exact deletion date or pick the extensions that should be shown. Using the filters will save you efforts and time and if you come across a domain that you'd like to have, you will be able to place your order for it with a click. In case we are unable to register the selected name, you will not lose the money you've paid us and you'll be able to order other domains with it - new registrations or backorders.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers

We have decided to add a domain name backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all semi-dedicated server accounts, so you won't need to register with a separate platform. The service will enable you to register a domain and host it in a single place. All of the domains scheduled to be deleted in the coming days will be placed in the Backorder section of Hepsia and you can browse them in alphabetical order. To reduce the number, you will be able to search by an exact phrase, determine the minimum and maximum number of characters your domain name should contain, and select a specific extension. You will also be able to search through domains by the exact date they will be erased. Because there is no 100% guarantee that we shall be able to register a specific domain name, if our attempt is unsuccessful, the funds for that domain name will be available as a credit within your account and will not be lost.

Domain Backorder in VPS Servers

We offer a backorder service with all VPS server solutions because we are a certified registrar and we have our very own backorder channel. You'll be able to employ this service from your billing Control Panel where you shall find all domains that will be on the market in the next few days. To save time, you can browse domains which will be deleted on a particular date, pick what extension they should have and how long they need to be or whether they should include only dictionary words. You'll also be able to search by a particular word or a phrase, so in case a good domain name that you would like to have is available, you will be able to find it easily. Unlike many other companies, in case that someone else registers the domain that you've ordered, we will credit your account and you will be able to use this money for any kind of other service.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers

If you have a dedicated server from our company, you will be able to backorder a domain name from the comfort of your billing Control Panel and will not need to subscribe for another platform since our company is a partner of an ICANN-accredited registrar. An entire section in the Control Panel is dedicated to this service and you'll find a long list of all domain names scheduled to be erased there. Using the filters that we've added to save you time, you can easily choose to see domain names from a specific date, to set the maximum and minimum length and to pick an extension, thus narrowing the list you shall need to browse through. It's also possible to enter a specific phrase or select to view domain names which include dictionary words and are not only a random combination of letters and numbers. It takes just a mouse click to order a domain from the list and if we are not able to register it before someone else does that, you won't lose your money and it will be added as a credit to your account.
