When a domain name expires, there is a time period of a little over two months when it's inactive, but could still be renewed by the current user. During this time, 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 five days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar companies accept backorders for this type of domains. In case a particular name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer the instant it is deleted and offered to the general public, which gives people an opportunity to get a short and memorable domain that may have been used by another person up to now. In the event that the domain is rather appealing, several companies could try to register it in the same time and because this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no warranty that a particular person will have that domain. Nevertheless, using a backorder service will give you a better chance to end up getting a specific domain than if you try to register it manually.

Domain Backorder in Shared Hosting

As we work with an ICANN-authorized service provider, we offer domain name backorders with all shared hosting packages, so you will not need to sign up for an additional account. An individual section within your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel will enable you to browse all domain names that will be deleted in the following days and we've added several filters that will allow you to narrow the search. You could enter any word or phrase, set the minimum and maximum number of characters, select a specific deletion date or choose the extensions which should be displayed. Employing the filters will save you lots of time and when you come across a domain name that you'd like to have, you'll be able to place an order for it with a click. If we're unable to register the chosen name, you will not lose the money you have paid us and you'll be able to order other domain names with it - new registrations or backorders.
