When a domain expires, there's a time period of a little over eight weeks when it's not active, but can still be renewed by its current user. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it is not renewed, it gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts 5 days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms take backorders for such domains. When a specific name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer right after it's deleted and offered to the general public, which gives people the opportunity to obtain a short and memorable domain that may have been used by someone else up to now. If the domain is very attractive, a number of companies may 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. However, using a backorder service will give you a much better chance to acquire a specific domain than if you attempt to register it personally.
Domain Backorder in Cloud Website Hosting
All cloud website hosting packages that we provide come with a domain backorder service as standard as our company is a partner of an ICANN-certified domain registrar. You may order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will discover a list of all the domains scheduled to be deleted in the next few days. Handy filters will help you to narrow this list, so instead of going through thousands of names, you will be able to search for a certain 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 literally a single mouse click. In case we acquire the domain that you'd like to have, it will be available in your Control Panel quickly. In case we're not successful, the money 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.
