When a domain expires, there's a period of a little over two months when it's inactive, but may still be renewed by the current user. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it is not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms take backorders for these domain names. In case a particular name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer right after it is deleted and accessible to the public, which gives people the opportunity to obtain a short and easy to remember domain which may have been used by someone else up to now. In case the domain is really attractive, a number of companies could try to register it in the same time and because this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no warranty that a specific person will get that domain. Nonetheless, using a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to end up getting a particular domain than when you attempt to register it yourself.
Domain Backorder in Shared Hosting
Since our company is a partner of an ICANN-authorized service provider, we offer domain backorders with all shared hosting plans, so you will not need to subscribe for an additional account. A separate section in your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel will allow you to browse all of the domain names which will be deleted in the next days and we've added several filters that will enable you to narrow your search. You may input any word or phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters, select an exact deletion date or select the extensions that should be displayed. Using the filters will save you efforts and time and when you find a domain name that you want to have, you will be able to place an order for it with just a click. If we're not able to register the selected name, you won't lose the money you've paid and you will be able to order other domains with it - new registrations or backorders.
