When an existing domain name expires, it could still be renewed by the current owner for about 2 months following the expiration and although it will not be active, it can't be used by anybody else. In case the domain is not renewed by then, however, it enters a 5-day deletion time frame and subsequently it's released to the public. During the deletion period everybody could send a backorder for the domain name through an ICANN-licensed domain registrar and the service provider will use its registry channel to try to register the domain for the user the moment it is available. As many registrars can attempt to obtain a particular domain and names are acquired on first-come, first-serve basis, there's no guarantee that using such a computerized service will grant you possession over it, but this is the most efficient way to get an appealing domain since trying to register it personally almost certainly means that you'll be far too late.

Domain Backorder in Shared Website Hosting

As we partner with an ICANN-authorized service provider, we offer domain backorders with all shared website hosting plans, so you will not need to sign up for a separate account. A separate section inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to browse all domain names which will be erased in the next days and we've added several filters that will allow you to narrow your search. You will be able to type in any word or phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters, select an exact deletion date or select the extensions that should be shown. Employing the filters will save you efforts and time and in case you come across a domain that you'd like to have, you'll be able to place your order for it with a click. If we're not able to register the selected name, you will not lose the money you have paid us and you will be able to order other domains with it - new registrations or backorders.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers

As we are a licensed registrar, we've included a backorder section inside the billing Control Panel of our dedicated servers, so that you can take advantage of this service fast and easy without opening some other account. When you go to this section, you'll discover the full list of the domain names which will become available in the following 5 days. Using the filters we've added, you can browse domain names that'll be erased on a particular date, and select their extension and length. In addition to that, you can search by a specific phrase or use a dictionary option which will filter all domain names which are just random groups of letters and numbers. It takes just a mouse click to place a backorder for any domain from the list and if we register it successfully, you'll be able to manage it immediately from the very same Control Panel. If someone else takes the required domain, the money will be added as credit to your account and will not be wasted.
