Learn more information on domain backorders. Find out how you can place a domain backorder yourself.
When an existing domain expires, it may still be renewed by its current owner for about 60 days following the expiration and although it will not be active, it can't be taken by anybody else. In case the domain name is not renewed by that point, however, it goes into a 5-day deletion period and then it's released to the general public. Throughout the deletion period anyone can submit a backorder for the domain through an ICANN-certified domain registrar and the service provider will use its registry channel in order to make an effort to register the domain for the user once it's available. Since lots of registrars can attempt to acquire a particular domain and names are acquired on first-come, first-serve basis, there's no warranty that employing such an automated service will give you ownership over it, however this is the easiest way to get an appealing domain name because trying to register it personally almost certainly means that you will be way too late.
Domain Backorder in Shared Website Hosting
All shared website hosting packages that we provide come with a domain backorder service by default as we partner with an ICANN-certified domain registrar. You can order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will find a list of all domains scheduled to be erased in the following few days. Handy filters will enable you to narrow this list, so instead of browsing through thousands of names, you could search for an exact phrase, specify the extension along with the length, or browse only domains that will be deleted on a specific date. The filters will save you lots of time and placing a backorder will take you just a single click. In case we get the domain name that you wish to have, it will be available in your Control Panel quickly. If we are not successful, the money for it will be available inside your account and you'll be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals and / or backorders.
