When a domain name expires, there's a time period of a little over sixty days when it is inactive, 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 enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for this kind of domains. When a given 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 the chance to obtain a short and easy to remember domain that may have been employed by someone else until now. In the event that the domain is extremely attractive, a number of companies can try to register it in the same time and because this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no guarantee that a specific person will have that domain. Nevertheless, employing a backorder service will give you a better chance to end up getting a particular domain than when you attempt to register it yourself.
Domain Backorder in Shared Hosting
All shared hosting packages that we provide feature a domain backorder service by default as we partner with an ICANN-licensed domain registrar. You will be able to order a domain right from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will find a list of all domains planned to be erased in the following several days. Useful filters will help you to narrow the list, so instead of browsing through thousands of names, you will be able to search for a particular phrase, specify the extension along with the length, or browse only domain names that will be deleted on a specific date. The filters will save you lots of time and placing a backorder will take you only one click. If we get the domain name that you wish to have, it will be available inside your Control Panel quickly. In the event that we are not successful, the funds for it will be available within your account and you will be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals or backorders.
