When a domain expires, there is a time period of a little over 2 months 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's not renewed, it gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms take backorders for these domain names. If a particular name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer immediately after it is deleted and available to the public, which gives people the opportunity to get a short and easy to remember domain that may have been used by somebody else until now. If the domain is rather appealing, a couple of companies could try to register it in the same time and because this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no warranty that a specific person will have that domain name. Nonetheless, using a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to obtain a particular domain than if you try to register it manually.

Domain Backorder in Shared Web Hosting

All shared web hosting plans that we offer come with a domain backorder service as a standard as we partner with an ICANN-authorized domain registrar. You'll be able to order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will discover a list of all domain names scheduled to be erased in the following few days. Useful filters will allow you to narrow this list, so instead of checking out thousands of names, you could search for a particular phrase, specify the extension as well as the length, or browse only domains which will be erased on a given date. The filters will save you a lot of time and placing a backorder will take you only one click. If we get the domain that you'd like to have, it will be available inside your Control Panel quickly. In case we aren't successful, the funds for it will be available inside your account and you shall be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals or backorders.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers

We have decided to include a domain backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all semi-dedicated server accounts, so you won't have to sign up for a different platform. This service will allow you to register a domain and host it in one place. All the domain names scheduled to be erased in the following days will be listed in the Backorder section of Hepsia and you will be able to browse them from a to z. To reduce the number, you could search by a particular phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters your domain name should contain, and choose a particular extension. You will also be able to browse domains by the exact date they'll be deleted. As there is no 100% guarantee that we will be able to register a particular domain, in case our attempt is not successful, the funds for that domain will be available as a credit in your account and will not be wasted.

Domain Backorder in VPS Servers

The billing Control Panel of our VPS servers contains a domain name backorder area where you will find all the domains that will be deleted within the next several days. We offer the service as we partner with an ICANN-approved company and we offer very affordable prices. The list in the Control Panel contains all domains due to be erased and you will be able to use filters and select the deletion date, minimum and maximum length and even the extension of the domains which will be shown. You can also narrow the list of domain names by specifying whether they should include only dictionary words or a particular word/phrase of your choice. The money for any unsuccessful registration attempt will be deposited within you billing account and you could use it for any other domain or hosting service.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers

If you have a dedicated server from our company, you will be able to backorder a domain name right from your billing Control Panel and will not have to sign up for another platform since our company is a partner of an ICANN-accredited registrar. A separate section in the Control Panel is focused on this specific service and you will find a long list of all domains scheduled to be deleted there. Thanks to the filters which we have added to save your efforts and time, you can select to view domains from a specific date, to set the maximum and minimum length and to pick an extension, thus narrowing the list you shall need to look through. You can also enter a particular phrase or select to view domains that contain dictionary words and are not only a random mix of letters and numbers. It takes only a mouse click to order a domain in the list and in case we are unable to register it before someone else does that, you will not lose the money and it will be added as a credit to your account.
