When a domain expires, there's a time period of a little over 2 months when it's inactive, but may still be renewed by its current owner. During this time, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it isn't renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for these domains. If a specific name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer immediately after it's deleted and available to the public, which gives people the option to acquire a short and easy to remember domain which may have been used by some other person until now. In case the domain is rather appealing, a couple of companies can try to register it in the same time and due to the fact that this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no guarantee that a particular person will have that domain name. However, employing a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to acquire a specific domain than if you try to register it yourself.

Domain Backorder in Cloud Hosting

You'll be able to backorder domains from your Hepsia Control Panel because we work with an ICANN-accredited registrar company and we provide the service as part of all cloud hosting packages. Because of this, you won't need a separate account and you'll be able to control the recently bought domain and the hosting space for it in one place. The service has its own section in the Control Panel where you will discover all domains due to be erased in the following five days. For a more precise search, you will be able to use several filters that we have added - minimum and maximum amount of characters, domain extension, exact deletion date, etc. You will also be able to search just for domain names that include dictionary words or set a phrase of your choice. Purchasing a domain name from the list will take you only a mouse click and in case we are unable to register the desired name, the money will not be wasted and you will be able to use it for domain registrations, renewals or backorders in the future.
