When a domain expires, there is a period of a little over two months when it is inactive, but could still be renewed by the current user. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it's not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for this type of domains. In case a particular name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer as soon as it is deleted and accessible to the general public, which gives people the chance to obtain a short and memorable domain that may have been used by another person until now. If the domain is quite appealing, several companies can try to register it in the same time and because this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no warranty that a specific person will have that domain. Nonetheless, using a backorder service will give you a better chance to end up getting a specific domain than if you try to register it personally.

Domain Backorder in Cloud Hosting

All cloud hosting plans that we provide include a domain backorder service as a standard as we partner with an ICANN-certified domain registrar. You'll be able to order a domain right from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will find a list of all the domain names scheduled to be deleted in the following few days. Helpful filters will enable you to narrow the list, so instead of going through thousands of names, you could search for a specific phrase, specify the extension as well as the length, or browse only domain names that will be deleted on a given date. The filters will save you considerable time and placing a backorder will take you literally a single mouse click. If we get the domain name that you wish to have, it'll be available in your Control Panel instantly. In the event that we aren't 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 and / or backorders.
