When a domain name expires, there's a period of a little over eight weeks when it is not active, but can still be renewed by its current user. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it's not renewed, it gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms take backorders for such domains. In case a specific name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer the second it is deleted and offered to the public, which gives people the chance to obtain a short and memorable domain that may have been used by another person up to now. If the domain is extremely appealing, a couple of companies could try to register it in the same time and since this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no guarantee that a specific person will have that domain name. However, employing a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to get a particular domain than when you attempt to register it manually.

Domain Backorder in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting packages that we offer come with a domain backorder service as a standard as our company is a partner of an ICANN-certified registrar. You can order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will discover a list of all domains scheduled to be erased in the following several days. Handy filters will help you to narrow the list, so instead of checking out thousands of names, you will be able to search for an exact phrase, specify the extension and the length, or browse only domain names which will be erased on a specific date. The filters will save you a considerable amount of time and placing a backorder will take you literally one mouse click. If we get the domain that you'd like to have, it will be available in your Control Panel quickly. If we are not successful, the funds for it will be available in your account and you shall be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals and / or backorders.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers

Being a licensed registrar, we offer domain backorders with each and every semi-dedicated server account and you shall be able to take full advantage of this service via your Hepsia Control Panel, not through a separate platform. All domain names that will be erased soon will be listed in an individual section and you will be able to search all of them or set a custom filter in order to reduce the number of domains you'll need to look at. You will be able to choose the specific date of deletion, the domain name extension, the minimum and maximum number of letters, or search by a particular phrase or a dictionary word. The filters will help you save a lot of efforts and will enable you to search for a good domain fast and easy. If we do not register the name you'd like to have, you can still use the money for it for some other service.
