When a domain expires, there's a period of a little over 60 days when it's inactive, but may still be renewed by the current owner. 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 that lasts 5 days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for such domains. When a given name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer right after it's deleted and available to the public, which gives people a chance to acquire a short and memorable domain which may have been employed by another person up to now. In case the domain is rather appealing, a number of companies may 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 name. Nonetheless, using a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to get a specific domain than if you try to register it manually.

Domain Backorder in Cloud Website Hosting

All cloud website hosting packages that we offer include a domain backorder service as standard as we partner with an ICANN-authorized domain registrar. You could order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will discover a list of all the domain names planned to be erased in the following few days. Helpful filters will allow you to narrow this list, so instead of browsing through thousands of names, you'll be able to search for a specific phrase, specify the extension as well as the length, or browse only domains that will be deleted on a given date. The filters will save you a lot of time and placing a backorder will take you literally a single mouse click. If we obtain the domain name that you want to have, it will be available inside your Control Panel right away. In the event that we aren't successful, the funds for it will be available within your account and you'll be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals and / or backorders.
