When a domain name expires, there's a time period of a little over eight weeks when it's inactive, but could still be renewed by the current owner. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it isn't renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar companies accept backorders for this type of domain names. In case a given name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer the instant it is deleted and accessible to the general public, which gives people an opportunity to acquire a short and memorable domain which may have been used by someone else until now. In the event that the domain is very attractive, several companies can try to register it in the same time and due to the fact that this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no warranty that a particular person will have that domain. However, employing a backorder service will give you a much better chance to acquire a specific domain than if you try to register it yourself.
Domain Backorder in Web Hosting
All web hosting
packages that we offer feature a domain backorder service by default as our company is a partner of an ICANN-licensed registrar. You'll be able to order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will find a list of all domains scheduled to be deleted in the following several days. Useful filters will help you to narrow this list, so rather than going through thousands of names, you can search for an exact phrase, specify the extension and the length, or browse only domain names which will be deleted on a given date. The filters will save you a lot of time and placing a backorder will take you just one mouse click. If we get the domain that you would like to have, it will be available inside your Control Panel instantly. If we are not successful, the money for it will be available within your account and you shall be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals and / or backorders.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated hosting
account from our company, you won't have to open an individual account so as to backorder a domain since we offer this service within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. The full list of all domains scheduled to be deleted will be available and you will be able to buy any domain with just a single mouse click. Employing the filters for an exact deletion date, domain length and top-level extension will help you to narrow the search and browse only domains you're attracted to. Furthermore, you'll be able to browse domains which contain only dictionary words or a selected phrase of your choice, which will save you a lot of time as thousands of domains are deleted daily. Also, if we are not able to obtain the desired domain, the funds for it will be present as credit for future orders and you won't lose it.
Domain Backorder in VPS

We have added several filters which will help you to search through thousands of names, so as to allow you to check fast and easy if any of them interests you. You can specify the length of the domain, the particular deletion date, whether the names you see need to contain just dictionary words and what domain name extensions have to be displayed. You will also be able to enter a phrase of your choosing to check out only names which include it. In case you make an order for a specific domain name and we don't fulfill it, you will not lose your money and you'll be able to use it for other domains or for your VPS plan.
