When a domain expires, there's a time period of a little over sixty days when it's not active, 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 goes into the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for such domains. In case a specific name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer the moment it's deleted and accessible to the general public, which gives people a chance to acquire a short and easy to remember domain which may have been employed by another person until now. In case the domain is quite appealing, a number 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 warranty that a particular person will have that domain name. However, using a backorder service will give you a much better chance to get a particular domain than if you attempt to register it personally.

Domain Backorder in Cloud Web Hosting

All cloud web hosting plans that we provide include a domain backorder service as standard as our company is a partner of an ICANN-approved registrar. You could order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will see a list of all the domains planned to be deleted in the next several days. Convenient filters will allow you to narrow this list, so instead of searching through thousands of names, you will be able to search for a certain 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 a considerable amount of time and placing a backorder will take you only one mouse click. In case we obtain the domain name that you would like to have, it'll be available in your Control Panel instantly. In the event that we are not 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 or backorders.
