When a domain expires, there's a time period of a little over eight weeks when it is inactive, but may still be renewed by its current user. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it isn't renewed, it goes into the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts five days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for these domains. When a particular name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer the second 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 until now. In case the domain is quite attractive, a number of companies can 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 have that domain. However, employing a backorder service will give you a much better chance to end up getting a specific domain than if you attempt to register it yourself.

Domain Backorder in Web Hosting

Since we partner with an ICANN-accredited company, we offer domain name backorders with all web hosting plans, so you will not need to register for a separate account. A separate section within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will allow you to browse all the domain names that will be erased in the following days and we've added several filters that will enable you to narrow the search. You will be able to type in any word or phrase, set the minimum and maximum number of characters, select a specific deletion date or select the extensions which should be shown. Using the filters will save you lots of time and if you come across a domain name that you would like to have, you will be able to place your order for it with only a click. In case we're not able to register the chosen name, you won't lose the money you've 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 that comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts, so you will not have to register with a different platform. This service will enable you to register a domain name and host it from a single place. All of the domains scheduled to be erased in the coming days will be listed in the Backorder section of Hepsia and you will be able to browse them in alphabetical order. To reduce the number, you may search by a specific phrase, set the minimum and maximum number of characters your domain should contain, and select a specific extension. You'll also be able to search through domains by the exact date they will be deleted. As there is no 100% guarantee that we'll be able to register a specific domain name, in case our attempt is unsuccessful, the funds for that domain will be available as a credit in your account and will not be wasted.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers

We provide a backorder service for all our customers as a certified registrar and you'll be able to take advantage of it via the billing Control Panel of your dedicated server. Several filters will help you to narrow the list of domain names that you see as there're thousands of domains being deleted on a daily basis. With a few mouse clicks you'll be able to choose what extensions to be shown, how long the domain names should be and when exactly they will be deleted. In addition, you can select to view only names that contain dictionary words or a phrase of your choosing, so you can easily discover any name that may interest you. Placing an order will take simply a click and in case we are able to register the wanted domain, you will be able to manage it through the exact same Control Panel. If not, your money won't be wasted and you will be able to use it for any other service - another domain or any other thing associated with your dedicated server.
