When an existing domain expires, it could still be renewed by the current owner for about two months after the expiration and although it won't be active, it cannot be obtained by someone else. When the domain is not renewed by that time, however, it enters a 5-day deletion period and subsequently it's released to the general public. During the deletion period everybody can submit a backorder for the domain name through an ICANN-accredited registrar and the service provider will use its registry channel to try to register the domain on behalf of the user the moment it is available. Because a lot of registrars can try to acquire a certain domain and names are acquired on first-come, first-serve basis, there is no guarantee that using such an automated service will grant you ownership over it, however this is the best way to get an attractive domain name as trying to register it manually almost certainly means that you will be too late.

Domain Backorder in Shared Web Hosting

All shared web hosting plans that we offer feature a domain backorder service as standard as our company is a partner of an ICANN-authorized registrar. You may order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will discover a list of all domain names scheduled to be erased in the next few days. Helpful filters will allow you to narrow the list, so instead of going through thousands of names, you could search for a specific phrase, specify the extension and the length, or browse only domains that will be deleted on a given date. The filters will save you a lot of time and placing a backorder will take you literally one mouse click. In case we get the domain name that you would like to have, it'll be available inside your Control Panel instantly. If we aren't successful, the funds for it will be available inside your account and you shall be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals or backorders.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We have decided to include a domain backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting accounts, so you shall not have to register with some other platform. The service will enable you to register a domain and host it from a single place. All the domains planned to be erased in the coming days will be placed in the Backorder part of Hepsia and you'll be able to browse them in alphabetical order. To reduce the number, you may search by an exact phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters your domain should contain, and select a particular extension. You will also be able to browse domains by the date they'll be deleted. Because there is no 100% guarantee that we shall be able to register a particular domain name, in case our attempt is unsuccessful, the money for that domain name will be available as a credit within your account and will not be lost.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Web Hosting

In case you have a dedicated server from our firm, you shall be able to backorder a domain right from your billing Control Panel and will never need to subscribe for a different platform since our company is a partner of an ICANN-approved registrar. A section in the Control Panel is dedicated to this particular service and you'll find a long list of all domain names scheduled to be deleted there. Using the filters that we have added to save you time, you can easily choose to see domains from a particular date, to set the maximum and minimum length and to pick an extension, thus narrowing the list you will need to go through. You may also enter a certain phrase or select to view domains which contain dictionary words and are not just a random mix of letters and numbers. It takes only a click to order a domain in the list and if we're unable to register it before somebody else does that, you won't lose your money and it will be added as a credit to your account.
