When a domain expires, there's a time period of a little over 60 days when it's not active, but may still be renewed by the current owner. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it is not renewed, it goes into the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar companies take backorders for this kind of domains. If a particular name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer the instant it is deleted and offered to the public, which gives people a chance to obtain a short and memorable domain which may have been employed by another person up until this moment. In case the domain is really appealing, 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 is no guarantee that a specific person will get that domain. Nonetheless, using a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to end up getting a specific domain than if you try to register it yourself.
Domain Backorder in Shared Hosting
You'll be able to backorder domains from your Hepsia Control Panel as we work with an ICANN-accredited registrar company and we offer this service as a part of all shared hosting packages. That way, you shall not need a separate account and you'll be able to manage the newly obtained domain name as well as the hosting space for it in a single place. The service has its own part in the Control Panel where you'll discover all domains due to be deleted in the following 5 days. For a more precise search, you will be able to use several filters that we have added - minimum and maximum number of characters, domain extension, exact deletion date, etc. What's more, you'll be able to search exclusively for domain names which contain dictionary words or set a phrase of your choice. Ordering a domain name from the list will take you only a click and in the event that we are unable to register the required name, the money won't be wasted and you shall be able to use it for domain registrations, renewals or backorders afterwards.
