When a domain name expires, there is a period of a little over eight weeks when it is inactive, but could still be renewed by its current user. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it is not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms take backorders for such domain names. If a given name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer immediately after it is deleted and accessible to the general public, which gives people an opportunity to obtain a short and memorable domain which may have been used by some other person up until this moment. In the event that the domain is very attractive, several companies may try to register it in the same time and because this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no guarantee that a specific person will have that domain. However, using a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to acquire a particular domain than if you try to register it manually.
Domain Backorder in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to backorder domains from your Hepsia Control Panel as we partner with an ICANN-licensed registrar company and we provide the service as part of all shared website hosting solutions. Because of this, you won't need a separate account and you'll be able to take care of the newly bought domain and the hosting space for it in one place. The service has its own part in the Control Panel where you'll discover all domains scheduled to be deleted 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. In addition, you'll be able to search exclusively for domain names which include dictionary words or specify a phrase of your choice. Ordering a domain from the list will take you only a click and in case we're not able to register the required name, the money won't be wasted and you will be able to use it for domain registrations, renewals or backorders afterwards.
