When a domain expires, there is 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 period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it is not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for these domains. In case a specific name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer as soon as it is deleted and offered to the public, which gives people the chance to acquire a short and memorable domain that may have been used by another person up until this moment. In case the domain is rather appealing, several companies may 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 warranty that a specific person will have that domain. However, employing a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to acquire a particular domain than when you try to register it personally.

Domain Backorder in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting plans that we offer come with a domain backorder service by default as our company is a partner of an ICANN-certified domain registrar. You can order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will find a list of all domains scheduled to be deleted in the next several days. Helpful filters will allow you to narrow the list, so instead of browsing through thousands of names, you could search for a specific phrase, specify the extension along with the length, or browse only domain names which will be deleted on a specific date. The filters will save you considerable 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. If we are not successful, the money for it will be available inside your account and you will be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals and / or backorders.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers

A domain name backorder service is available with all of our semi-dedicated server plans and you will be able to place an order for a selected name from the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel. A complete list of the domains scheduled to be erased will be available in an individual section and you will be able to browse all of them or narrow the search with several custom filters which we've added which include a minimum and maximum length, a domain extension and an exact expiration date. Using a search box, you'll also be able to check whether any expired domain has a specific phrase you are interested in. The funds for any failed order won't be lost and will be available as a credit inside your account as we cannot warrant that we'll be able to register every single domain name that you wish to have via our backorder registrar channel.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers

In case you have a dedicated server from our firm, you will be able to backorder a domain name from the comfort of your billing Control Panel and will not have to register for another platform since our company is a partner of an ICANN-licensed registrar. A section in the Control Panel is dedicated to this particular service and you will find a list of all domains scheduled to be deleted there. Using the filters which we've added to save your efforts and time, you will be able to select to see domains from a particular 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 given phrase or select to see domains that contain dictionary words and are not just a random combination of letters and numbers. It takes just a mouse click to order a domain in the list and in case we're 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.
