When a domain expires, there is a time period of a little over 60 days when it's not active, but may still be renewed by the current user. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it isn't renewed, it gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts five days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for this kind of domain names. In case a given name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer the instant it is deleted and offered to the general public, which gives people the option to acquire a short and memorable domain that may have been used by some other person up until this moment. In case the domain is rather appealing, several companies could try to register it in the same time and since this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no guarantee that a particular person will get that domain. However, employing a backorder service will give you a much better chance to get a particular domain than when you attempt to register it personally.
Domain Backorder in Web Hosting
All web hosting
packages that we offer feature a domain backorder service as a standard as we partner with an ICANN-certified registrar. You could order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will see a list of all the domain names planned to be erased in the next few days. Convenient filters will enable you to narrow this list, so rather than going through thousands of names, you'll be able to search for an exact 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 a considerable amount of time and placing a backorder will take you only one click. In case we acquire the domain that you'd like to have, it'll be available in your Control Panel quickly. In the event that we're not successful, the money for it will be available within 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
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 shall not need to subscribe to another platform. The service will enable you to register a domain name and host it in one place. All of the domain names scheduled to be deleted in the following days will be placed in the Backorder part of Hepsia and you will be able to browse them from a to z. To reduce the number, you will be able to search by a specific phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters the domain should contain, and select a specific extension. You'll also be able to browse through domain names by the exact date they will be erased. As there is no 100% guarantee that we shall be able to register a particular domain, if our attempt is not successful, the funds for that domain will be available as a credit within your account and will not be lost.
Domain Backorder in VPS Servers
We provide domain backorders with all hosting plans that we sell and if you have a VPS server
, you'll be able to use the service through your billing Control Panel. An individual section in the latter is devoted to the service and what you will find there is a complete list of the domains that are scheduled to be deleted in the next five days. We've added several filters that will help you to browse through a large number of names, so as to enable you to check fast and easy if any of them interests you. You could specify the length of the domain name, the particular deletion date, whether the names you see need to contain just dictionary words and what domain name extensions have to be displayed. You will also be able to type in a phrase of your choosing and view only names which include it. In the event you make an order for a specific domain and we do not fulfill it, you won't lose your money and you shall be able to use it for other domain names or for your VPS plan.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers
If you have a dedicated server
from our firm, you shall be able to backorder a domain name directly from your billing Control Panel and will never have to register for another platform as we work with an ICANN-approved registrar. A section in the Control Panel is focused on this particular service and you will find a list of all domains scheduled to be erased there. Thanks to the filters which we have added to save your efforts and time, you can select to view domain names from a specific date, to set the maximum and minimum length and to select an extension, thus narrowing the list you'll have to go through. You may also enter a certain phrase or select to see domain names which include dictionary words and are not just a random combination of letters and numbers. It takes only a click to order any domain from the list and in case we are not able to register it before somebody else does that, you won't lose your money as it will be added as a credit to your account.
