When a domain name expires, there is a period of a little over eight weeks when it is not active, but could 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 gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts 5 days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar companies take backorders for this kind of domain names. If a given name is backordered, the registrar will make an 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 which may have been used by someone else up to now. In the event that the domain is very attractive, a number of companies could try to register it in the same time and since this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no warranty that a particular person will get that domain. Nonetheless, employing a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to obtain a particular domain than when you try to register it yourself.

Domain Backorder in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to backorder domains from your Hepsia Control Panel because we partner with an ICANN-licensed registrar company and we provide this service as part of all cloud hosting solutions. This way, you will not need a separate account and you shall be able to take care of the recently purchased domain name 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 scheduled to be erased in 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. You will also be able to search just for domain names that include dictionary words or set a phrase of your choosing. Acquiring a domain from the list will take you only a mouse click and in case we're not able to register the required name, the money will not be wasted and you'll be able to use it for domain registrations, renewals or backorders later on.
