When a domain name expires, there is a time period of a little over 2 months when it is not active, but could still be renewed by the current user. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it isn't renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts five days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for these domain names. When a given name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer the instant it's deleted and available to the general public, which gives people the opportunity to acquire a short and memorable domain which may have been used by someone else up until this moment. If the domain is rather attractive, several companies could try to register it in the same time and since this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no guarantee that a specific person will get that domain name. However, employing a backorder service will give you a better chance to get a specific domain than if you attempt to register it manually.
Domain Backorder in Shared Web Hosting
You'll be able to backorder domains from your Hepsia Control Panel because we partner with an ICANN-approved registrar company and we provide this service as part of all shared web hosting
packages. That way, you shall not need a separate account and you shall be able to take care of the recently acquired domain name and the hosting space for it in a single place. The service has its own section in the Control Panel where you'll discover all domains scheduled to be erased within the next 5 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. What's more, you'll be able to search just for domains which include dictionary words or specify a phrase of your choice. Getting a domain from the list will take you just a click and in the event that we're not able to register the desired name, the money will not be wasted and you'll be able to use it for domain registrations, renewals and / or backorders afterwards.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We've decided to add a domain name backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel that is available with all semi-dedicated hosting
accounts, so you won't have to sign up for a different platform. This service will allow you to register a domain and host it in a single place. All the domain names planned to be deleted in the coming days will be placed in the Backorder part of Hepsia and you will be able to browse them in alphabetical order. To narrow the number, you could search by an exact phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters your domain should contain, and choose a specific extension. You will also be able to browse domains by the date they will be deleted. Since there is no 100% guarantee that we'll be able to register a particular domain, in case our attempt is unsuccessful, the money for that domain will be available as a credit within your account and will not be lost.
Domain Backorder in VPS Hosting
We provide domain backorders with all hosting plans that we sell and in case you have a virtual private server
, you will be able to use the service through your billing Control Panel. An individual section in the latter is dedicated to the service and what you'll see there is the entire list of the domain names that are scheduled to be deleted in the following five days. We have added a few filters that will help you to search through many hundreds of names, in order to allow you to check quick and easy if any of them interests you. You could specify the length of the domain, the particular deletion date, whether the names you see must contain just dictionary words and what domain name extensions have to be displayed. You can also insert a phrase of your choosing and see only names that include it. If you make an order for a particular domain and we don't fulfill it, you will not lose your funds and you shall be able to use it for other domains or for your VPS plan.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Web Hosting
In case you have a dedicated server
from our firm, you shall be able to backorder a domain from the comfort of your billing Control Panel and will never need to subscribe for another platform because we partner with an ICANN-approved registrar. An entire section in the Control Panel is focused on this service and you will find a list of all domains scheduled to be deleted there. Thanks to the filters which we've added to save you time, you can easily select to view domain names from a certain date, to define the maximum and minimum length and to pick an extension, thus narrowing the list you shall have to go through. You may also enter a particular phrase or select to view domain names that contain dictionary words and are not just a random mix of letters and numbers. It takes just a mouse click to order any domain from the list and in case we are unable to register it before someone else does that, you will not lose the money and it will be added as a credit to your account.
