What exactly is a domain backorder? How exactly does the backorder process work?
When a domain expires, there's a time period of a little over eight weeks when it is not active, but could still be renewed by its current owner. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it is not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts five days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms take backorders for these domains. When a specific name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer the second it's deleted and available to the general public, which gives people a chance to get a short and easy to remember domain that may have been used by somebody else up to now. In the event that the domain is very attractive, several companies may try to register it in the same time and since this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no warranty that a specific person will have that domain name. However, employing a backorder service will give you a better chance to obtain a particular domain than when you attempt to register it manually.
Domain Backorder in Cloud Hosting
We offer a domain backorder service with all of our cloud hosting
packages and you will be able to take advantage of it from your Hepsia Control Panel. For your convenience, you will be able to customize the list of domain names that you find by their extension, exact deletion date and length, so you shall not have to browse through thousands of domains to discover whether an appropriate one shall be available soon. You will also be able to search for a certain word or a phrase within the domain name list. In case we are able to register the wanted domain for you, it will be listed along with all other domains that you have with us and you'll be able to take care of it just as effortlessly. We offer the service at very affordable prices when compared to other registrars and if we're unable to acquire a domain name for you, your money will still be available in your account, so you can use it for other domains or internet hosting services.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers
We've decided to include a domain name backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all semi-dedicated server
accounts, so you won't need to register with another platform. The service will permit you to register a domain name and host it in one place. All of the domain names planned to be deleted in the following days will be listed in the Backorder section of Hepsia and you can browse them from a to z. To narrow the number, you could search by a particular phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters the domain should contain, and select a specific extension. You will also be able to search through domains by the date they'll be deleted. Since there is no 100% guarantee that we shall be able to register a specific domain, in case our attempt is not successful, the money for that domain will be available as a credit inside your account and will not be lost.
Domain Backorder in VPS Servers
Because we partner with an ICANN-certified registrar, we offer a domain name backorder service for all our hosting plans, including the VPS servers
. You shall find the whole list of all domain names which will be deleted in the next days in your VPS billing Control Panel and placing an order for any of them will take you a single click. Because the list is pretty large, we have added a couple of filters that will enable you to find appropriate domain names - specify the domain name extension and the minimum/maximum length, check the domains that will be deleted on a specific date, view only domains that contain dictionary words or enter a string of characters of your choice. As backordering a domain can't guarantee that we will be able to register it, you will still be able to use the funds from the order for other services in case that the registration attempt is unsuccessful.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers
If you have a dedicated server
from our company, you'll be able to backorder a domain directly from your billing Control Panel and will not need to register for a different platform since we partner with an ICANN-licensed registrar. A separate section in the Control Panel is focused on this specific service and you'll find a long list of all domains scheduled to be deleted there. Using the filters which we've added to save your efforts and time, you will be able to select to view domain names from a certain date, to set the maximum and minimum length and to pick an extension, thus narrowing the list you shall need to browse through. In addition, you can enter a specific phrase or select to see domains that contain dictionary words and are not only a random mix of letters and numbers. It takes just a mouse click to order a domain in the list and in case we are unable to register it before somebody else does that, you won't lose your money as it will be added as a credit to your account.
