When a domain name expires, there is a time period of a little over sixty days when it is inactive, but may still be renewed by its current owner. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it is not renewed, it goes into the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts five days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar companies take backorders for such domain names. In case a specific name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer as soon as it is deleted and accessible to the general public, which gives people a chance to get a short and memorable domain that may have been used by somebody else up until this moment. In case the domain is really attractive, several 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 get that domain name. Nonetheless, employing a backorder service will give you a much better chance to get a specific domain than if you try to register it manually.
Domain Backorder in Website Hosting
All website hosting plans that we offer come with a domain backorder service as a standard as we partner with an ICANN-certified domain registrar. You will be able to order a domain right from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will discover a list of all the domain names planned to be deleted in the next few days. Handy filters will enable you to narrow this list, so rather than browsing through thousands of names, you will be able to search for a specific phrase, specify the extension as well as the length, or browse only domains which will be erased on a given date. The filters will save you a considerable amount of time and placing a backorder will take you literally a single click. In case we acquire the domain name that you wish to have, it'll be available inside your Control Panel without delay. In the event that we're not successful, the money for it will be available in your account and you'll be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals or backorders.
