When a domain expires, there's a time period of a little over 2 months when it is inactive, but may still be renewed by its current user. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it's not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for this kind of domains. If a particular name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer the moment it's deleted and offered to the general public, which gives people an opportunity to get a short and easy to remember domain that may have been employed by somebody else up until this moment. In case the domain is very attractive, several companies can try to register it in the same time and since this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no guarantee that a specific person will get that domain. However, employing a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to obtain a specific domain than if you try to register it yourself.

Domain Backorder in Website Hosting

Since our company is a partner of an ICANN-accredited company, we provide domain name backorders with all website hosting plans, so you will not have to sign up for a separate account. A separate section inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will enable you to browse all domain names that will be deleted in the next days and we've added several filters that will enable you to narrow your search. You can enter any word or phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters, select a specific deletion date or pick the extensions that should be shown. Employing the filters will save you a lot of time and in case you discover a domain name that you would like to have, you will be able to place an order for it with a mouse click. If we're not able to register the chosen name, you won't lose the money you have paid and you will be able to order other domains with it - new registrations or backorders.
