When a domain name expires, there's a time period of a little over 60 days when it's not active, but can still be renewed by its current owner. During this time, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it's not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar companies take backorders for such domains. In case a given name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer the second it's deleted and accessible to the general public, which gives people the opportunity to obtain a short and memorable domain which may have been employed by someone else up until this moment. In case the domain is extremely appealing, a couple of companies could try to register it in the same time and due to the fact that this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no warranty that a particular person will have that domain name. Nonetheless, using a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to obtain a specific domain than when you try to register it manually.
Domain Backorder in Shared Web Hosting
Since we partner with an ICANN-licensed service provider, we provide domain backorders with all shared web hosting solutions, so you will not need to register for an additional account. A separate section within your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will enable you to browse all of the domains that will be deleted in the following days and we have added several filters which will allow you to narrow your search. You may enter any word or phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters, select an exact deletion date or pick the extensions which should be displayed. Employing the filters will save you time and efforts and when you come across a domain that you'd like to have, you will be able to place your order for it with just a click. If we are unable to register the selected name, you won't lose the money you have paid us and you'll be able to order other domain names with it - new registrations or backorders.
