When a domain name expires, there's a period of a little over 60 days when it is not active, but may still be renewed by its current user. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it isn't renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts 5 days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms take backorders for this kind of domain names. If a given name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer the instant it's deleted and accessible to the public, which gives people the option to acquire a short and easy to remember domain which may have been employed by some other person until now. If the domain is rather attractive, several companies may try to register it in the same time and because this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no warranty that a specific person will get that domain. Nonetheless, using a backorder service will give you a better chance to get a particular domain than if you try to register it manually.

Domain Backorder in Shared Web Hosting

All shared web hosting plans that we offer include a domain backorder service as standard as we partner with an ICANN-licensed registrar. You will be able to order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will see a list of all the domain names planned to be deleted in the following several days. Convenient filters will allow you to narrow this list, so instead of browsing through thousands of names, you'll be able to search for a specific phrase, specify the extension as well as the length, or browse only domain names that will be deleted on a specific date. The filters will save you a considerable amount of time and placing a backorder will take you only one mouse click. In case we get the domain name that you want to have, it will be available inside your Control Panel quickly. In case we are not successful, the funds for it will be available within your account and you shall be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals or backorders.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers

A domain name backorder service is provided with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you can place an order for a specific name from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The full list of the domains planned to be deleted will be viewable in an individual section and you'll be able to browse all of them or narrow the search through a few custom filters that we've added such as a minimum and maximum length, a domain name extension and an exact expiration date. Using a search box, you can also check whether any expired domain has a specific phrase you are interested in. The funds for any unsuccessful order won't be lost and will be present as a credit within your account since we can't guarantee that we'll be able to register each and every domain name that you would like to have using our backorder registrar channel.

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 never have to sign up for another platform because our company is a partner of an ICANN-certified registrar. An entire section in the Control Panel is focused on this service and you will find a list of all domain names scheduled to be deleted there. Using the filters that we have added for your convenience, you can choose to view domain names from a specific date, to set the maximum and minimum length and to pick an extension, thus narrowing the list you'll need to look through. You may also enter a certain phrase or select to view domain names which include dictionary words and are not just a random combination of letters and numbers. It takes just a click to order any domain from the list and if we are not able to register it before somebody else does that, you will not lose the money and it will be added as a credit to your account.
