When a domain name expires, there is a time period of a little over 2 months when it's inactive, but may still be renewed by its current user. During this time, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it is not renewed, it gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts 5 days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for these domain names. When a particular name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer right after it is deleted and accessible to the public, which gives people the opportunity to acquire a short and memorable domain that may have been employed by some other person up until this moment. In case the domain is really attractive, several companies may try to register it in the same time and since 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 much better chance to get a specific domain than if you attempt to register it personally.
Domain Backorder in Cloud Hosting
We offer a domain backorder service with all our cloud hosting
plans and you can take advantage of it from the Hepsia Control Panel. To save you time, you will be able to arrange the list of domain names that you see by extension, exact deletion date and length, so you will not need to browse through thousands of domain names to see if a suitable one shall be available in the near future. You will also be able to search for a certain word or a phrase within the domain name list. In case we can register the desired domain name for you, it will be listed along with any other domains which you have with us and you'll be able to manage it just as effortlessly. We offer the service at very affordable prices when compared with other registrars and in case we are unable to get a domain for you, your money will be available in your account, so you can use it for other domain names or web hosting services.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers
A domain backorder service is available with all of our semi-dedicated server
plans and you have the option to place your order for a specific name from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. A full list of the domain names planned to be deleted will be viewable in an individual section and you could browse all of them or narrow your search through a few custom filters that we have added such as a minimum and maximum length, a domain name extension and an exact expiration date. Via a search box, you will also be able to check whether any expired domain contains a specific phrase you're interested in. The funds for any unsuccessful order won't be lost and will be available as a credit inside your account since we can't guarantee that we'll be able to register each domain that you want to have through our backorder registrar channel.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers
Since we are an approved registrar company, we've included a backorder section inside the billing Control Panel of our dedicated servers
, so you can take full advantage of this service quick and easy without having to open another account. When you go to this section, you will see the complete list of the domains which will become available in the next 5 days. Using the filters we've added, you can browse domains that will be erased on a given date, and pick their extension and length. In addition, you can browse by an exact 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 will be able to control it directly from the very same Control Panel. If someone else takes the required domain, the money will be added as credit to your account and won't be wasted.
