When a domain name expires, there is a period of a little over two months when it's not active, but could still be renewed by its current owner. During this time, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it's not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts five days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar companies accept backorders for such domain names. When a particular name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer the moment it is deleted and accessible to the general public, which gives people the option to acquire a short and easy to remember domain which may have been used by somebody else until now. In case the domain is extremely appealing, a number 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's no guarantee that a particular person will have that domain name. However, employing a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to end up getting a specific domain than if you attempt to register it personally.

Domain Backorder in Shared Web Hosting

As we work with an ICANN-licensed service provider, we provide domain name backorders with all shared web hosting solutions, so you won't have to register for a different account. An individual section inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will allow you to browse all the domains which will be erased in the next days and we have added several filters that will allow you to narrow your search. You could type in any word or phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters, select a particular deletion date or pick the extensions that should be displayed. Using the filters will save you lots of time and when you discover a domain name that you would like to have, you'll be able to place an order for it with just a click. If we're unable to register the chosen name, you won't lose the money you have paid us and you'll be able to order other domain names with it - new registrations or backorders.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers

We've decided to add a domain name backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all semi-dedicated server accounts, so you shall not have to subscribe to a separate platform. This service will allow you to register a domain and host it in a single place. All of the domains scheduled to be erased in the coming days will be placed in the Backorder section of Hepsia and you'll be able to browse them from a to z. To narrow the number, you could search by a specific phrase, determine the minimum and maximum number of characters your domain name should contain, and select a given extension. You'll also be able to search through domain names by the exact date they'll be erased. As there is no 100% guarantee that we will be able to register a specific domain, if our attempt is not successful, the money for that domain will be available as a credit in your account and will not be wasted.

Domain Backorder in VPS Servers

We provide domain backorders with all internet hosting plans that we sell and if you have a VPS server, you can use the service through your billing Control Panel. A separate section in the latter is devoted to the service and what you'll see there is the complete list of the domains that are due to be deleted in the following five days. We have added a few filters that will help you to browse through many hundreds of names, in order to enable you to check fast and easy whether any of them interests you. You could specify the length of the domain name, the specific deletion date, whether the names you see should contain solely dictionary words and what domain name extensions have to be displayed. You could also enter a phrase of your choice and see only names that contain it. In case you place an order for a particular domain name and we do not fulfill it, you won't lose your money and you will be able to use it for other domains or for your VPS plan.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers

In case you have a dedicated server from our company, you'll be able to backorder a domain name right from your billing Control Panel and will not have to sign up for another platform as we partner with an ICANN-accredited registrar. An entire section in the Control Panel is focused on this service and you'll find a list of all domain names scheduled to be deleted there. Thanks to the filters which we have added to save you time, you can 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 have to look through. You can also enter a specific phrase or select to see domains which contain dictionary words and are not just a random combination of letters and numbers. It takes only a mouse click to order any domain in the list and if we're unable 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.
