When a domain expires, there's a time period of a little over sixty days when it's inactive, but may still be renewed by the current owner. During this time 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 five days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar companies accept backorders for these domains. When a particular name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer the second it is deleted and accessible to the general public, which gives people the chance to obtain a short and easy to remember domain that may have been used by someone else until now. In case the domain is extremely attractive, a couple of companies may 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 particular person will have that domain. Nevertheless, using a backorder service will give you a much better chance to end up getting a specific domain than when you attempt to register it yourself.
Domain Backorder in Cloud Web Hosting
Since we partner with an ICANN-licensed service provider, we offer domain backorders with all cloud web hosting packages, so you will not need to subscribe for a different account. A separate section inside your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel will allow you to browse all domains that will be deleted in the following days and we have added several filters which will allow you to narrow the search. You will be able to type in any word or phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters, select a specific deletion date or select the extensions which should be viewable. Employing the filters will save you time and efforts and if you find a domain name that you want to have, you will be able to place an order for it with a mouse click. In case we are not able to register the selected name, you won't lose the money you've paid and you will be able to order other domains with it - new registrations or backorders.
