When a domain name expires, there's a time period of a little over eight weeks when it is inactive, but could still be renewed by the current owner. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it's not renewed, it goes into the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar companies accept backorders for this kind of domains. When a particular name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer the instant it is deleted and accessible to the general public, which gives people a chance to get a short and memorable domain that may have been used by another person until now. If the domain is extremely attractive, several companies may try to register it in the same time and because this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no guarantee that a specific person will get that domain name. Nevertheless, employing a backorder service will give you a better chance to obtain a specific domain than if you attempt to register it manually.

Domain Backorder in Shared Hosting

As we work with an ICANN-authorized service provider, we offer domain name backorders with all shared hosting solutions, so you will not need to register for an additional account. A separate section in your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel will allow you to browse all the domain names that will be erased in the next days and we have added several filters which will allow you to narrow your search. You will be able to input any word or phrase, set the minimum and maximum number of characters, select an exact deletion date or select the extensions that should be shown. Using the filters will save you efforts and time and in case you find a domain that you'd like to have, you could place your order for it with only a click. In case we are not able to register the chosen name, you won't lose the money you have paid and you'll be able to order other domains with it - new registrations or backorders.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you won't have to open an individual account so as to backorder a domain as we provide this service in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The full list of all domain names scheduled to be erased will be readily available and you shall be able to buy any domain with just a single mouse click. Using the filters for a particular deletion date, domain length and top-level extension will help you to narrow the search and surf only domain names you are interested in. Last, but not least you'll be able to browse domain names that contain only dictionary words or a certain phrase of your choice, which can save you quite a lot of time considering that thousands of domains are erased every day. Also, if we are not able to obtain the desired domain, the funds for it will be available as credit for future orders and you will not lose it.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers

A domain backorder section is available inside the billing Control Panel of the dedicated servers that we offer since we are an authorized registrar company. The service will enable you to find good domains without subscribing for another platform and you will be able to make an order with just a click. All domain names that will be erased in the coming days will be listed in that section and you shall be able to set many different filters to narrow the list and browse only domains that interest you - minimum/maximum length, the actual deletion date, extension, etcetera. In addition, you'll be able to browse only domains that contain dictionary words or ones which contain a phrase that you insert, thus saving your time and efforts to browse through a lot of random names. In case you order a particular domain name and we can't register it, we'll credit your account and you will not lose your funds.
