What is a domain backorder? How exactly does the backorder process function?
When a domain name expires, there's a period of a little over 60 days when it is inactive, but can still be renewed by the current user. 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 when ICANN-accredited registrar firms take backorders for this type of domain names. When a particular name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer immediately after it's deleted and available to the public, which gives people the chance to acquire a short and memorable domain which may have been used by someone else until now. In the event that the domain is very attractive, a number 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 get that domain. Nonetheless, using a backorder service will give you a better chance to get a specific domain than if you attempt to register it personally.
Domain Backorder in Shared Hosting
We provide a domain name backorder service with all our shared hosting
plans and you can employ it from the Hepsia Control Panel. For your convenience, you'll be able to arrange the list of domains which you find by extension, exact deletion date and length, so you won't need to browse through thousands of domain names to see whether an appropriate one shall be available in the near future. You can also search for a specific word or a phrase within the domain list. In case we are able to register the wanted domain name for you, it'll be listed together with any other domains which you have here and you shall be able to take care of it just as easily. We offer this service at very affordable prices compared to other registrars and if we are unable to obtain a domain for you, the money shall be available in your account, so you can use it for other domain names or hosting services.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers
We have decided to include a domain name backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all semi-dedicated server
accounts, so you will not have to subscribe to some other platform. The service will permit you to register a domain and host it in one place. All domain names planned to be erased in the following days will be listed in the Backorder section of Hepsia and you'll be able to browse them from a to z. To narrow the number, you may search by an exact phrase, determine the minimum and maximum number of characters your domain should contain, and choose a given extension. You'll also be able to browse through domains by the date they will be erased. As there is no 100% guarantee that we will be able to register a given domain, in case our attempt is unsuccessful, the funds for that domain name will be available as a credit within your account and will not be lost.
Domain Backorder in VPS Servers
We provide a backorder service with all of our VPS server
plans because we are an accredited registrar and we have our very own backorder channel. You could use this particular service from your billing Control Panel where you'll find all domain names which will be obtainable in the following several days. To save time, you can browse domains which will be erased on a specific date, pick what extension they should have and how long they need to be or whether they should feature only dictionary words. You can also search by a particular word or a phrase, so in case a proper domain name that you would like to have is available, you will be able to find it quick and easy. Unlike many other companies, in case that someone else registers the domain that you've ordered, we will credit your account and you shall be able to use this money for any other 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 never need to register for a different platform as our company is a partner of an ICANN-licensed registrar. A separate section in the Control Panel is focused on this specific service and you'll find a list of all domains scheduled to be erased there. Thanks to the filters which we have added for your convenience, you'll be able to choose to view domains from a certain date, to set the maximum and minimum length and to select an extension, thus narrowing the list you will need to browse through. In addition, you can enter a given phrase or select to view domain names which contain dictionary words and are not just a random mix of letters and numbers. It takes just a mouse click to order any domain from the list and if we are not able to register it before someone else does that, you won't lose your money and it will be added as a credit to your account.
