When a domain expires, there is a time period of a little over two months when it is inactive, but could still be renewed by its current owner. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it's not renewed, it gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts five days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms take backorders for such domain names. When a specific name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer the moment 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 until now. If the domain is rather appealing, a couple of companies can try to register it in the same time and because this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no warranty that a particular person will have that domain. Nonetheless, employing a backorder service will give you a better chance to obtain a particular domain than when you attempt to register it yourself.
Domain Backorder in Shared Hosting
All shared hosting plans that we offer include a domain backorder service as a standard as our company is a partner of an ICANN-licensed registrar. You can order a domain right from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will discover a list of all the domain names scheduled to be erased in the next several days. Useful filters will help you to narrow this list, so rather than checking out thousands of names, you'll be able to search for a specific phrase, specify the extension along with the length, or browse only domains that will be deleted on a specific date. The filters will save you lots of time and placing a backorder will take you only a single click. If we acquire the domain name that you'd like to have, it'll be available in your Control Panel instantly. If we are not successful, the funds 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.
