What precisely is a domain backorder? How exactly does the backorder process work?
When a domain expires, there is a period of a little over sixty days when it is not active, but could 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 goes into the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts five days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for such domains. When a given name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer the moment it is deleted and offered to the general public, which gives people the option to get a short and memorable domain that may have been used by somebody else up to now. In the event that the domain is extremely 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 guarantee that a specific person will have that domain name. Nevertheless, using a backorder service will give you a much better chance to acquire a specific domain than when you attempt to register it personally.
Domain Backorder in Cloud Hosting
We provide a domain name backorder service with all our cloud hosting
packages and you can employ it from your Hepsia Control Panel. To save you time, you will be able to customize the list of domain names that you see by their extension, exact deletion date and length, so you will not have to browse through thousands of domains to find if an appropriate one will be available soon enough. You can also search for a specific word or a phrase in the domain name list. In case we are able to register the required domain for you, it will be listed along with all other domains which you have here and you will be able to manage it just as easily. We offer the service at very competitive prices when compared with other registrars and if we are unable to obtain a domain name for you, your money will be available in your account, so you can use it for other domains or hosting services.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We've decided to include a domain backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel that is available with all semi-dedicated hosting
accounts, so you will not need to register with a separate platform. This service will allow you to register a domain name and host it from a single place. All domain names planned to be erased in the coming days will be placed in the Backorder section of Hepsia and you can browse them from a to z. To narrow the number, you will be able to search by a particular phrase, set the minimum and maximum number of characters your domain name should contain, and choose a given extension. You'll also be able to browse through domain names by the date they'll be erased. As there is no 100% guarantee that we shall be able to register a specific domain, if our attempt is not successful, the money for that domain name will be available as a credit in your account and will not be lost.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers Hosting
As we're an accredited registrar, we have included a backorder section within the billing Control Panel of our dedicated servers
, so that you can take full advantage of this service quick and easy without having to open a separate account. When you go to this section, you will find a full list of the domain names which will become available in the following 5 days. Thanks to the filters we have added, you can browse domain names which will be erased on a given date, and select their extension and length. What's more, you can search by a specific phrase or use a dictionary option which will filter all domain names that are just random groups of letters and numbers. It takes just a mouse click to make a backorder for any domain name from the list and if we register it successfully, you shall be able to control it immediately from the same Control Panel. In the event that someone else takes the required domain, the funds will be added as credit to your account and will not be wasted.
