When a domain expires, there's a period of a little over sixty days when it's not active, but may still be renewed by its current user. During this time, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it is not renewed, it gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar companies take backorders for this type of domain names. In case a particular name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer right after it is deleted and available to the general public, which gives people a chance to get a short and memorable domain which may have been used by somebody else up to now. In the event that the domain is rather attractive, a couple of companies can 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 particular person will have that domain name. However, using a backorder service will give you a better chance to get a particular domain than if you try to register it personally.
Domain Backorder in Cloud Hosting
As our company is a partner of an ICANN-accredited company, we offer domain name backorders with all cloud hosting packages, so you will not need to register for an additional account. A separate section inside your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel will enable you to browse all of the domains which will be erased in the next days and we've added several filters which will allow you to narrow your search. You will be able to enter any word or phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters, select an exact deletion date or select the extensions that should be shown. Using the filters will save you time and efforts and in case you find a domain name that you would like to have, you will be able to place an order for it with only a mouse click. If we are not able to register the chosen name, you will not lose the money you have paid and you will be able to order other domain names with it - new registrations or backorders.
