What is a domain backorder? How does the backorder process function?
When a domain expires, there's a time period of a little over eight weeks when it's inactive, but may still be renewed by its current owner. During this 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 firms accept backorders for these domain names. If a particular name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer the moment it's deleted and accessible to the public, which gives people a chance to obtain a short and memorable domain that may have been used by another person up until this moment. In the event that the domain is really 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 warranty that a specific person will get that domain. Nevertheless, using a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to obtain a specific domain than when you try to register it yourself.
Domain Backorder in Shared Website Hosting
All shared website hosting
packages that we offer feature a domain backorder service as standard as we partner with an ICANN-certified registrar. You may order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will discover a list of all domains scheduled to be erased in the following several days. Convenient filters will enable you to narrow this list, so instead of searching through thousands of names, you can search for a particular phrase, specify the extension along with the length, or browse only domains which will be deleted on a particular date. The filters will save you a considerable amount of time and placing a backorder will take you only one click. In case we obtain the domain name that you'd like to have, it will be available inside your Control Panel right away. In the event that we aren't successful, the money for it will be available within your account and you shall be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals or backorders.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers
Being a licensed registrar, we provide domain backorders with each semi-dedicated server
account and you shall be able to take advantage of this service via your Hepsia Control Panel, not through a separate platform. All domains which will be erased soon will be listed in an individual section and you will be able to browse through all of them or set a custom filter to lower the number of domains you will need to look at. You will be able to pick the exact deletion date, the domain extension, the minimum and maximum number of letters, or search by a certain phrase or a dictionary word. Using filters will help you save a lot of efforts and will allow you to search for a good domain name fast and easy. If we do not register the name you'd like to have, you will still be able to use the money for it for some other service.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers
As we're a certified registrar company, we've included a backorder section in the billing Control Panel of our dedicated servers
, so that you can take full advantage of this service quick and easy without having to open some other account. When you go to this section, you'll find the full list of the domain names which will become available in the following five days. Using the filters we have added, you can browse domains that will be deleted on a given date, and choose their extension and length. In addition to that, you can browse by an exact phrase or use a dictionary option which will filter all domains which are just random groups of letters and numbers. It takes only a click to place a backorder for any domain name from the list and if we register it successfully, you'll be able to control it directly from the same Control Panel. In case someone else takes the required domain, the money will be added as credit to your account and won't be wasted.
