When a domain expires, there is a period of a little over 60 days when it's inactive, but may still be renewed by its current user. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it's not renewed, it gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts five days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar companies take backorders for such domains. In case a specific name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer as soon as it's deleted and accessible to the general public, which gives people the option to get a short and easy to remember domain which may have been used by another person up to now. In the event that the domain is quite appealing, a couple of companies can 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 get that domain name. Nevertheless, using a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to get a particular domain than when you try to register it yourself.
Domain Backorder in Shared Web Hosting
All shared web hosting plans that we offer come with a domain backorder service as a standard as our company is a partner of an ICANN-certified registrar. You will be able to order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will discover a list of all domains scheduled to be deleted in the next several days. Handy filters will allow you to narrow this list, so rather than searching through thousands of names, you will be able to search for an exact phrase, specify the extension and the length, or browse only domain names which will be deleted 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. If we acquire the domain that you'd like to have, it'll be available inside your Control Panel without delay. If we are not successful, the money for it will be available in your account and you will be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals or backorders.
