When a domain expires, there's a time period of a little over eight weeks when it is not active, but may still be renewed by the current user. During this time, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it's not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts five days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms take backorders for this kind of domains. When a specific name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer immediately after it's deleted and offered to the public, which gives people an opportunity to obtain a short and memorable domain that may have been used by somebody else up to now. If the domain is quite appealing, several companies can try to register it in the same time and since this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no warranty that a specific person will have that domain. Nevertheless, employing a backorder service will give you a better chance to acquire a specific domain than when you attempt to register it personally.
Domain Backorder in Cloud Hosting
All cloud hosting packages that we provide include a domain backorder service by default as we partner with an ICANN-certified domain registrar. You'll be able to order a domain right from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will find a list of all the domains scheduled to be deleted in the next few days. Useful filters will enable you to narrow this list, so rather than searching through thousands of names, you can search for a particular phrase, specify the extension along with the length, or browse only domains that will be deleted on a particular date. The filters will save you a lot of time and placing a backorder will take you just a single click. If we acquire the domain that you'd like to have, it'll be available in your Control Panel without delay. In the event that we're not successful, the money for it will be available in your account and you shall be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals or backorders.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We have decided to add a domain name backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all semi-dedicated hosting accounts, so you will not need to sign up for some other platform. This service will allow you to register a domain and host it in one place. All the domain names planned to be erased in the following days will be placed in the Backorder part of Hepsia and you'll be able to browse them in alphabetical order. To reduce the number, you could search by a particular phrase, set the minimum and maximum number of characters your domain name should contain, and select a particular extension. You will also be able to browse domains by the date they will be deleted. As there is no 100% guarantee that we'll be able to register a specific domain name, if our attempt is not successful, the money for that domain name will be available as a credit inside your account and will not be lost.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Web Hosting
In case you have a dedicated server from our firm, you shall be able to backorder a domain from the comfort of your billing Control Panel and will never have to subscribe for another platform since our company is a partner of an ICANN-approved registrar. A separate section in the Control Panel is dedicated to this service and you will find a list of all domains scheduled to be erased there. Using the filters that we have added for your convenience, you could select to view domain names from a particular date, to define the maximum and minimum length and to pick an extension, thus narrowing the list you shall have to go through. You may also enter a particular phrase or select to see domains which contain dictionary words and are not only a random combination of letters and numbers. It takes just a click to order any domain from the list and in case we are unable to register it before somebody else does that, you won't lose the money and it will be added as a credit to your account.
