When a domain name expires, there is a period of a little over eight weeks when it is not active, but could still be renewed by its current owner. During this time, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it's not renewed, it goes into the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts 5 days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for this type of domains. If a given name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer immediately after it's deleted and accessible to the public, which gives people the chance to obtain a short and memorable domain that may have been used by some other person until now. In the event that the domain is extremely appealing, a couple of companies may try to register it in the same time and due to the fact that this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no guarantee that a particular person will get that domain name. However, using a backorder service will give you a better chance to get a particular domain than if you try to register it personally.

Domain Backorder in Cloud Website Hosting

All cloud website hosting packages that we provide come with a domain backorder service as standard as we partner with an ICANN-certified registrar. You will be able to order a domain right from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will find a list of all the domains scheduled to be deleted in the next several days. Handy filters will enable you to narrow the list, so rather than checking out thousands of names, you could search for a specific phrase, specify the extension along with the length, or browse only domain names which will be erased on a given date. The filters will save you a lot of time and placing a backorder will take you just a single mouse click. If we obtain the domain name that you'd like to have, it'll be available inside your Control Panel without delay. In the event that we are not successful, the funds for it will be available within your account and you will be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals and / or backorders.
