Discover more details on domain backorders. Learn how you're able to place a domain backorder yourself.
When a domain expires, there is a period of a little over sixty days when it is inactive, but may still be renewed by its current user. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it isn't renewed, it goes into the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for these domains. When a particular name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer the instant it's deleted and offered to the public, which gives people a chance to get a short and easy to remember domain that may have been used by another person until now. If the domain is really appealing, 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 guarantee that a particular person will get that domain name. However, employing a backorder service will give you a better chance to get a particular domain than if you attempt to register it personally.
Domain Backorder in Cloud Hosting
All cloud hosting plans that we offer feature a domain backorder service by default as our company is a partner of an ICANN-certified registrar. You will be able to order a domain right from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will discover a list of all the domains planned to be deleted in the following several days. Helpful filters will enable you to narrow this list, so rather than checking out thousands of names, you will be able to search for a specific phrase, specify the extension and the length, or browse only domains which will be erased on a particular date. The filters will save you a considerable amount of time and placing a backorder will take you literally one mouse click. If we obtain the domain name that you wish to have, it will be available in your Control Panel right away. If we aren't successful, the money for it will be available in your account and you will be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals and / or backorders.
