What exactly is a domain backorder? How does the backorder process function?
When a domain expires, there is a period of a little over 2 months when it is not active, but can still be renewed by its current owner. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it isn't renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar companies take backorders for these domains. In case a given name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer immediately after it's deleted and available to the general public, which gives people the opportunity to obtain a short and memorable domain that may have been employed by somebody else up until this moment. If the domain is quite attractive, a number of companies may try to register it in the same time and due to the fact that this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no guarantee that a specific person will have that domain. Nevertheless, employing a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to obtain a specific domain than if you attempt to register it manually.
Domain Backorder in Cloud Hosting
You will be able to backorder domains from your Hepsia Control Panel since we work with an ICANN-approved registrar company and we offer this service as part of all cloud hosting
packages. Because of this, you shall not need a separate account and you'll be able to control the newly acquired domain and also the hosting space for it in a single place. The service has its own part in the Control Panel where you will find all domains due to be erased within the next five 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 exclusively for domain names that include dictionary words or specify a phrase of your choosing. Buying a domain from the list will take you only a click and if we are not able to register the required name, the money won't be lost and you shall be able to use it for domain registrations, renewals or backorders later on.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers
A domain name backorder service is provided with all our semi-dedicated server
solutions and you can place your order for a selected name from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The complete list of the domains planned to be erased will be viewable in an individual section and you can browse all of them or narrow your search through several custom filters that we have added like a minimum and maximum length, a domain name extension and an exact expiration date. Through a search box, you can also check whether any expired domain has a specific phrase you're interested in. The money for any failed order will not be lost and will be present as a credit in your account as we can't warrant that we'll be able to register each and every domain that you want to have using our backorder registrar channel.
Domain Backorder in VPS Servers
As our company is a partner of an ICANN-approved registrar, we offer a domain name backorder service for all our internet hosting packages, which includes the VPS servers
. You'll find the complete list of all domain names which will be deleted in the following days in your VPS billing Control Panel and making an order for any of them will take you just a single click. Because the list is quite large, we've added several filters which will allow you to find good domain names - choose the domain extension and the minimum/maximum length, check the domains which will be erased on a given date, view only domains which contain dictionary words or enter a string of characters of your choice. As backordering a domain doesn't guarantee that we'll be able to register it, you will still be able to use the money from the order for different other services in case that the registration attempt is not successful.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers
In case you have a dedicated server
from our firm, you'll be able to backorder a domain right from your billing Control Panel and will never need to subscribe for another platform as our company is a partner of an ICANN-licensed registrar. A separate section in the Control Panel is dedicated to this particular service and you will find a long list of all domain names scheduled to be erased there. Using the filters that we have added to save your efforts and time, you can choose to view domains from a certain date, to set the maximum and minimum length and to pick an extension, thus narrowing the list you shall need to browse through. It's also possible to enter a given phrase or select to see domain names that contain dictionary words and are not only a random combination of letters and numbers. It takes only a click to order any domain from the list and in case we are not able to register it before someone else does that, you will not lose the money as it will be added as a credit to your account.
