When a domain expires, there is a time period of a little over sixty days when it is not active, but could still be renewed by the current user. During this time period, 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 the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for this kind of domain names. When a specific name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer right after it's deleted and available to the public, which gives people the opportunity to obtain a short and easy to remember domain which may have been employed by somebody else up to now. In case the domain is rather appealing, several companies can try to register it in the same time and due to the fact that this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no guarantee that a specific person will have that domain. However, employing a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to obtain a specific domain than if you attempt to register it yourself.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers

A domain backorder service is available with all of our semi-dedicated server solutions and you will be able to place an order for a specific name from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. A complete list of the domain names scheduled to be erased will be available in a separate section and you'll be able to browse all of them or narrow the search with a couple of custom filters that we've added such as a minimum and maximum length, a domain name extension and an exact expiration date. Using a search box, you'll also be able to check if any expired domain contains a specific phrase you are interested in. The funds for any failed order won't be lost and will be available as a credit within your account because we can't warrant that we'll be able to register each and every domain name that you would like to have via our backorder registrar channel.
