When a domain expires, there is a period of a little over two months when it's inactive, but could still be renewed by its current owner. During this time, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it is not renewed, it goes into the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for such domains. If a specific name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer as soon as it's deleted and available to the general public, which gives people the opportunity to obtain a short and easy to remember domain which may have been used by somebody else until now. In the event that the domain is rather attractive, a number 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 warranty that a specific person will get that domain. Nevertheless, using a backorder service will give you a much better chance to get a particular domain than if you attempt to register it manually.

Domain Backorder in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting packages that we provide feature 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 domains planned to be erased in the following several days. Helpful filters will help you to narrow the list, so instead of searching through thousands of names, you'll be able to search for a specific phrase, specify the extension and the length, or browse only domain names that will be deleted on a particular date. The filters will save you considerable time and placing a backorder will take you only a single click. In case we obtain the domain name that you wish to have, it'll be available in your Control Panel instantly. In the event that we're not successful, the funds for it will be available in your account and you'll be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals or backorders.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you won't have to open a separate account to be able to backorder a domain name as we offer this service in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The full list of all domain names scheduled to be erased will be available and you will be able to buy any domain with a single click. Using the filters for a specific deletion date, domain length and top-level extension will enable you to narrow the search and surf only domains you're attracted to. Last, but not least you'll be able to browse domain names which contain only dictionary words or a certain phrase of your choice, which will save you quite a lot of time since thousands of domains are erased daily. Also, if we're not able to get the desired domain name, the money for it will be present as credit for upcoming orders and you won't lose it.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers

A domain backorder section is available in the billing Control Panel of the dedicated servers which we provide since we are a certified registrar company. The service will enable you to find good domains without signing up for another platform and you shall be able to make an order with just a click. All domains which will be erased in the following days will be listed in that section and you will be able to set a variety of filters to narrow the list and browse only domains which interest you - minimum/maximum length, the actual deletion date, extension, etcetera. Also, you'll be able to browse only domain names that contain dictionary words or ones which contain a phrase that you enter, thus saving the time and efforts to search through numerous random names. In case you order a certain domain name and we cannot register it, we will credit your account and you will not lose your money.
