When a domain expires, there is a time period of a little over eight weeks when it is not active, but could still be renewed by its current user. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it is not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts five days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar companies take backorders for these domain names. If 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 general public, which gives people an opportunity to obtain a short and easy to remember domain that may have been employed by another person up to now. If the domain is rather appealing, several companies can try to register it in the same time and since this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no guarantee that a specific person will get that domain. However, employing a backorder service will give you a better chance to obtain a particular domain than if you attempt to register it yourself.
Domain Backorder in Cloud Web Hosting
You'll be able to backorder domains from your Hepsia Control Panel since we work with an ICANN-licensed registrar company and we offer this service as a part of all cloud web hosting solutions. Because of this, you won't need an individual account and you'll be able to control the recently bought domain name and the hosting space for it in a single place. The service has its own section in the Control Panel where you'll find all domains due to be erased in 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 only for domains that include dictionary words or set a phrase of your choice. Buying a domain from the list will take you just a click and in case we are unable to register the required name, your money won't be lost and you shall be able to use it for domain registrations, renewals or backorders later on.
