What exactly is a domain backorder? How exactly does the backorder process function?
When a domain name expires, there is a period of a little over eight weeks when it is not active, but can still be renewed by the current owner. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it isn't renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar companies accept backorders for this type of domain names. In case a specific name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer the moment it's deleted and accessible to the public, which gives people an opportunity to obtain a short and easy to remember domain that may have been used by another person up to now. In the event that the domain is rather 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 is no warranty that a specific person will have that domain name. Nonetheless, using a backorder service will give you a much better chance to obtain a particular domain than if you try to register it manually.
Domain Backorder in Shared Hosting
As we partner with an ICANN-certified company, we offer domain backorders with all shared hosting
plans, so you won't have to sign up for another account. An individual section inside your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel will allow you to browse all the domains that will be erased in the next days and we have added several filters which will enable you to narrow the search. You may type in any word or phrase, set the minimum and maximum number of characters, select a specific deletion date or select the extensions that should be displayed. Using the filters will save you a lot of time and in case you discover a domain name that you want to have, you can place your order for it with only a click. In case we are unable to register the selected name, you will not lose the money you've paid and you'll be able to order other domains with it - new registrations or backorders.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A domain name backorder service is available with all of our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions and you have the option to place an order for a selected name from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. A complete list of the domains planned to be deleted will be available in a separate section and you could browse all of them or narrow the search with several custom filters which we've added which include a minimum and maximum length, a domain name extension and an exact expiration date. Via a search box, you will also be able to check if any expired domain has a specific phrase you're interested in. The money for any failed order will not be lost and will be present as a credit in your account since we cannot warrant that we will be able to register every single domain that you want to have via our backorder registrar channel.
Domain Backorder in VPS Hosting
We offer you domain backorders with all hosting packages that we sell and if you have a virtual private server
, you could use the service through your billing Control Panel. An individual section in the latter is dedicated to the service and what you'll find there is the entire list of the domain names that are scheduled to be deleted in the following 5 days. We have added several filters which will help you to scan through many hundreds of names, so as to allow you to check quick and easy whether any of them interests you. You will be able to specify the length of the domain name, the exact deletion date, whether the names you see need to contain solely dictionary words and what domain name extensions have to be shown. You could also type in a phrase of your choice and view only names that include it. If you make an order for a given domain and we do not fulfill it, you won't lose your funds and you shall be able to use it for other domain names or for your VPS plan.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Web Hosting
In case you have a dedicated server
from our firm, you shall be able to backorder a domain name right from your billing Control Panel and will not need to sign up for a different platform because we partner with an ICANN-approved registrar. A separate section in the Control Panel is focused on this particular service and you'll find a long list of all domain names scheduled to be erased there. Thanks to the filters that we've added to save you time, you can easily choose to see domain names from a specific date, to set the maximum and minimum length and to pick an extension, thus narrowing the list you shall need to go through. You may also enter a specific phrase or select to see domains that include dictionary words and are not just a random mix of letters and numbers. It takes just a click to order any domain from the list and in case we are unable to register it before someone else does that, you won't lose the money and it will be added as a credit to your account.
