When a domain expires, there's a period of a little over eight weeks when it's inactive, but can still be renewed by the current owner. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it is not renewed, it gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts 5 days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms take backorders for these domain names. If a specific name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer the moment it is deleted and offered to the public, which gives people the chance to get a short and easy to remember domain that may have been used by someone else until now. In case the domain is very appealing, a couple of companies could 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 particular person will have that domain. Nonetheless, using a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to acquire a specific domain than if you try to register it manually.

Domain Backorder in Shared Hosting

We offer a domain backorder service with all of our shared hosting plans and you will be able to take advantage of it from the Hepsia Control Panel. To save you time, you will be able to arrange the list of domains that you see by extension, exact deletion date and length, so you won't have to browse through thousands of domain names to see if a suitable one shall be available soon enough. You will also be able to look for a certain word or a phrase within the domain list. If we can register the wanted domain for you, it will be listed along with any other domains that you have with us and you'll be able to take care of it just as easily. We offer the service at very affordable prices when compared with other registrars and if we are unable to acquire a domain name for you, your money will still be available in your account, so you will be able to use it for other domains or internet hosting services.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers

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

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers

Because we are a licensed registrar, we've included a backorder section in the billing Control Panel of our dedicated servers, so that you can take full advantage of this service quick and easy without having to open a separate account. When you go to this section, you'll see a full list of the domains which will become available in the following 5 days. Thanks to the filters we have added, you can browse domains that'll be deleted on a specific date, and pick their extension and length. What's more, you can browse by an exact phrase or use a dictionary option which will filter all domains which are just random groups of letters and numbers. It takes just a click to place a backorder for any domain from the list and if we register it successfully, you will be able to manage it right away from the very same Control Panel. In case someone else takes the wanted domain, the money will be added as credit to your account and won't be wasted.
