When an active domain expires, it can still be renewed by the present owner for about 2 months after the expiration and although it won't be active, it cannot be used by anybody else. When the domain is not renewed by that time, however, it goes into a 5-day deletion period and after that it is available to the public. During the deletion period everybody can submit a backorder for the domain name through an ICANN-certified registrar and the service provider will use its registry channel in order to attempt to register the domain for the user immediately after it is available. Since many registrars can try to acquire a given domain and names are acquired on first-come, first-serve basis, there is no warranty that employing such an automated service will give you ownership over it, but this is the best way to get an appealing domain since trying to register it personally almost certainly means that you'll be way too late.
Domain Backorder in Web Hosting
Since we work with an ICANN-licensed service provider, we offer domain backorders with all web hosting solutions, so you will not have to sign up for an additional account. A separate section inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to browse all the domains that will be deleted in the following days and we've added several filters that will enable you to narrow the search. You could enter any word or phrase, set the minimum and maximum number of characters, select a specific deletion date or select the extensions that should be shown. Using the filters will save you time and efforts and in case you find a domain that you'd like to have, you can place your order for it with just a mouse click. If we are unable to register the chosen name, you will not lose the money you have paid and you shall be able to order other domains with it - new registrations or backorders.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Being an accredited registrar, we offer domain backorders with each and every semi-dedicated hosting account and you could take advantage of this service via your Hepsia Control Panel, not through some other platform. All domains that will be erased soon will be listed in an individual section and you will be able to browse through all of them or set a custom filter to reduce the number of domains you'll need to browse through. You will be able to choose the particular deletion date, the domain extension, the minimum and maximum amount of letters, or search by a certain phrase or a dictionary word. These filters will help you save a lot of efforts and will enable you to search for a good domain fast and easy. If we don't register the name you want to have, you will still be able to use the money for it for any other service.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Web Hosting
As we are a certified registrar company, we have included a backorder section within the billing Control Panel of our dedicated servers, so you can employ this service fast and easy without having to open another account. When you go to this section, you will discover a full list of the domains which will be available in the following five days. When you use the filters we've added, you can browse domain names that will be deleted on a specific date, and choose their extension and length. In addition to that, you can browse by a specific phrase or use a dictionary option that will filter all domain names which are just random groups of letters and numbers. It takes just a click to make a backorder for any domain name from the list and if we register it successfully, you'll be able to manage it directly from the same Control Panel. In case somebody else takes the desired domain, the funds will be added as credit to your account and will not be lost.
