When a domain name expires, there's a time period of a little over 2 months when it's inactive, but may still be renewed by its current user. During this time, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it is not renewed, it goes into the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar companies take backorders for these domains. When a specific name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer as soon as it's deleted and available to the public, which gives people the chance to get a short and memorable domain that may have been employed by some other person up until this moment. In case the domain is quite appealing, a number of companies may 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 particular person will get that domain name. However, using a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to acquire a particular domain than when you attempt to register it yourself.
Domain Backorder in Hosting
All hosting packages that we offer come with a domain backorder service as a standard as we partner with an ICANN-certified registrar. You may order a domain right from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will find a list of all domains planned to be erased in the following several days. Convenient filters will help you to narrow this list, so rather than searching through thousands of names, you'll be able to search for an exact phrase, specify the extension along with the length, or browse only domains that will be erased on a specific date. The filters will save you considerable time and placing a backorder will take you only one click. If we obtain the domain name that you want to have, it will be available in your Control Panel without delay. In case we're 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.
