When a domain expires, there is a period of a little over 60 days when it is not active, but can still be renewed by its current user. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it's not renewed, it gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts five days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar companies accept backorders for this type of domains. In case a specific name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer as soon as it's deleted and accessible to the general public, which gives people the opportunity to acquire a short and memorable domain which may have been used by somebody else up until this moment. If the domain is really attractive, a number of companies may 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. However, using a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to get a specific domain than if you try to register it personally.

Domain Backorder in Cloud Hosting

All cloud hosting packages that we offer come with a domain backorder service by default as we partner with an ICANN-approved registrar. You'll be able to order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will see a list of all domain names scheduled to be deleted in the following few days. Convenient filters will enable you to narrow the list, so instead of checking out thousands of names, you will be able to search for a certain phrase, specify the extension as well as the length, or browse only domain names which will be erased on a given date. The filters will save you a lot of time and placing a backorder will take you just one mouse click. If we acquire the domain that you want to have, it will be available in your Control Panel instantly. If we aren't 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 or backorders.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers

A domain backorder service is available with all of our semi-dedicated server solutions and you have the option to place an order for a particular name from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. A full list of the domain names planned to be erased will be present in a separate section and you could browse all of them or narrow your search with a few custom filters that we have added like a minimum and maximum length, a domain extension and an exact expiration date. Via a search box, you can also check whether any expired domain contains a specific phrase you're interested in. The funds for any failed order won't be lost and will be available as a credit in your account since we can't guarantee that we'll be able to register each and every domain name that you would like to have using our backorder registrar channel.

Domain Backorder in VPS Servers

Because we partner with an ICANN-licensed registrar, we offer a domain backorder service for all our web hosting plans, which includes the VPS servers. You will find the full list of all domains which will be erased in the following days in your VPS billing Control Panel and placing an order for any of them will take you one click. As the list is quite large, we have added a few filters that will allow you to find good domain names - select the domain extension and the minimum/maximum length, check the domains which will be erased on a particular date, view only domains which include dictionary words or enter a string of characters of your choice. As backordering a domain does not guarantee that we'll be able to register it, you will still be able to use the funds from the order for other services in case that the registration attempt is unsuccessful.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers

If you have a dedicated server from our firm, you will be able to backorder a domain right from your billing Control Panel and will never have to sign up for a different platform since our company is a partner of an ICANN-accredited registrar. An entire section in the Control Panel is focused on this particular service and you will find a list of all domain names scheduled to be erased there. Using the filters which we have added to save your efforts and time, you can select to view domain names from a certain date, to set the maximum and minimum length and to pick an extension, thus narrowing the list you will need to go through. You may also enter a certain phrase or select to view domain names which include dictionary words and are not only a random combination of letters and numbers. It takes just a click to order a domain in the list and if we are unable to register it before someone else does that, you will not lose your money and it will be added as a credit to your account.
