When a domain expires, there is a period of a little over two months when it is inactive, but could still be renewed by the current owner. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it's not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar companies accept backorders for this type of domains. If a particular name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer the second it's deleted and offered to the general public, which gives people a chance to acquire a short and memorable domain which may have been used by someone else until now. In the event that the domain is quite appealing, a couple of companies may try to register it in the same time and since this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no guarantee that a specific person will get that domain name. However, employing a backorder service will give you a much better chance to get a specific domain than when you try to register it yourself.
Domain Backorder in Cloud Website Hosting
You will be able to backorder domains from your Hepsia Control Panel since our company is a partner of an ICANN-licensed registrar company and we offer this service as part of all cloud website hosting solutions. That way, you will not need a separate account and you will be able to control the newly acquired domain name as well as the hosting space for it in one place. The service has its own part in the Control Panel where you'll find all domains due to be erased within the next five 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 exclusively for domains that contain dictionary words or set a phrase of your choice. Purchasing a domain from the list will take you just a click and if we're unable to register the desired name, the money will not be wasted and you'll be able to use it for domain name registrations, renewals and / or backorders later on.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers
We have decided to add a domain name backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts, so you will not have to register with some other platform. The service will enable you to register a domain and host it in a single place. All of the domain names planned to be deleted in the coming days will be listed in the Backorder section of Hepsia and you'll be able to browse them in alphabetical order. To narrow the number, you will be able to search by an exact phrase, determine the minimum and maximum number of characters the domain should contain, and select a particular extension. You'll also be able to browse domain names by the date they'll be erased. Because there is no 100% guarantee that we will be able to register a specific domain name, in case our attempt is unsuccessful, the money for that domain name will be available as a credit inside your account and will not be wasted.
Domain Backorder in VPS Servers
We provide a backorder service with all VPS server plans because we are an authorized registrar and we have our own backorder channel. You could employ this service from your billing Control Panel where you will find all domains which will be on the market in the next several days. For your convenience, you can browse domains which will be erased on a certain date, select what extension they should have and how long they must be or if they should contain only dictionary words. You can also search by a particular word or a phrase, so in case a good domain name that you would like to have is on the market, you’ll be able to find it fast and easy. Unlike a lot of other companies, in case that somebody else registers the domain which you have ordered, we will credit your account and you will be able to use this money for any other service.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers
In case you have a dedicated server from our company, you will be able to backorder a domain name directly from your billing Control Panel and will not have to sign up for a different platform since our company is a partner of an ICANN-approved registrar. An entire section in the Control Panel is dedicated to this particular service and you will find a long list of all domain names scheduled to be deleted there. Using the filters which we've added to save your efforts and time, you'll be able to select to view domains from a certain date, to set the maximum and minimum length and to pick an extension, thus narrowing the list you shall have to go through. In addition, you can enter a given phrase or select to view domain names that include dictionary words and are not just a random mix of letters and numbers. It takes just a mouse click to order any domain in the list and in case we are not able to register it before someone else does that, you will not lose the money as it will be added as a credit to your account.
