When a domain name expires, there's a time period of a little over 60 days when it's inactive, but can still be renewed by its current owner. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it's not renewed, it gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar companies accept backorders for such domains. If a particular 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 a chance to obtain a short and memorable domain that may have been employed by someone else up until this moment. In the event that the domain is quite appealing, a number of companies may 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 name. Nonetheless, using a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to get a particular domain than if you try to register it yourself.

Domain Backorder in Cloud Website Hosting

Since we partner with an ICANN-certified company, we provide domain name backorders with all cloud website hosting plans, so you won't need to sign up for an additional account. An individual section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to browse all of the domains which will be erased in the next days and we have added several filters which will allow you to narrow your search. You'll be able to input any word or phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters, select a particular deletion date or select the extensions which should be viewable. Using the filters will save you lots of time and if you come across a domain that you'd like to have, you will be able to place an order for it with a click. In case we're unable to register the chosen name, you won't lose the money you've paid and you shall be able to order other domain names with it - new registrations or backorders.
