When a domain expires, there's a time period of a little over 60 days when it's not active, but could still be renewed by its current owner. 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 companies accept backorders for this type of domain names. If a specific name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer the moment it's deleted and offered to the general public, which gives people an opportunity to acquire a short and memorable domain that may have been employed by somebody else up until this moment. In case the domain is rather attractive, a number of companies could 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 guarantee that a specific person will have that domain. Nonetheless, employing a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to acquire a specific domain than when you attempt to register it yourself.
Domain Backorder in Cloud Web Hosting
As we work with an ICANN-accredited service provider, we provide domain backorders with all cloud web hosting plans, so you will not need to sign up for a different account. A separate section within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to browse all the domain names which will be erased in the next days and we've added several filters that will enable you to narrow your search. You can enter any word or phrase, set the minimum and maximum number of characters, select an exact deletion date or pick the extensions that should be shown. Employing the filters will save you lots of time and when you come across a domain that you want to have, you will be able to place an order for it with only a click. If we're not able to register the selected name, you will not lose the money you've paid and you will be able to order other domains with it - new registrations or backorders.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers
A domain backorder service is available with all our semi-dedicated server packages and you have the option to place an order for a particular name from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. A complete list of the domain names planned to be erased will be present in a separate section and you can browse all of them or filter your search using a few custom filters which we have added for example a minimum and maximum length, a domain extension and an exact expiration date. Using a search box, you can also check whether any expired domain contains a specific phrase you're interested in. The money for any failed order will not be lost and will be available as a credit in your account since we can't warrant that we'll be able to register every single domain that you'd like to have through our backorder registrar channel.
Domain Backorder in VPS Servers
We provide a backorder service with all of our VPS server packages since we are a licensed registrar and we have our very own backorder channel. You could take advantage of this service from your billing Control Panel where you'll find all domain names that will be available in the following several days. To save efforts and time, you can browse domains that will be deleted on a certain date, pick what extension they should have and how long they must be or whether they should contain only dictionary words. You will also be able to search by an exact word or a phrase, so in case a proper domain that you would like to have is on the market, you will be able to find it quick and easy. Unlike many other companies, in case that somebody else registers the domain which you have ordered, we will credit your account and you shall be able to use the money for any other service.
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 server. Several filters will make it easy to narrow the list of domain names that you see as there are thousands of domain names being deleted every day. With a few clicks you'll be able to pick what extensions to be shown, how long the domains should be and when exactly they will be erased. What's more, you can choose to see only names which include dictionary words or a phrase of your choice, so you could easily discover each name which may interest you. Placing your order will take just a click and if we can register the domain, you will be able to control it through the very same Control Panel. Otherwise, your money won't be wasted and you will be able to use it for any other service - another domain or something else associated with your dedicated server.
