When an active domain expires, it could still be renewed by the current owner for about two months following the expiration and even though it won't be active, it cannot be taken by someone else. In case the domain is not renewed by then, however, it goes into a 5-day deletion period and subsequently it's available to the general public. Throughout the deletion period anyone can send a backorder for the domain name through an ICANN-certified domain registrar and the company will use its registry channel to attempt to register the domain name for the user as soon as it is available. Since lots of registrars could try to acquire a given domain and names are acquired on first-come, first-serve basis, there isn't any warranty that employing such an automated service will grant you ownership over it, but this is the most efficient way to get an attractive domain since trying to register it personally almost certainly means that you will be way too late.

Domain Backorder in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting plans that we provide include a domain backorder service as a standard as our company is a partner of an ICANN-licensed domain registrar. You can order a domain right from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will discover a list of all the domains scheduled to be erased in the next several days. Handy filters will help you to narrow this list, so rather than going through thousands of names, you will be able to search for a particular phrase, specify the extension and the length, or browse only domains which will be erased on a particular date. The filters will save you lots of time and placing a backorder will take you only one mouse click. In case we obtain the domain that you want to have, it'll be available in your Control Panel right away. In the event that we are not successful, the funds for it will be available inside your account and you'll be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals and / or backorders.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We've decided to add a domain backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all semi-dedicated hosting accounts, so you won't have to sign up for a different platform. This service will enable you to register a domain and host it in one place. All of the domain names scheduled to be erased in the following days will be listed in the Backorder part of Hepsia and you'll be able to browse them from a to z. To reduce the number, you could search by a particular phrase, determine the minimum and maximum number of characters your domain should contain, and select a specific extension. You'll also be able to search through domains by the exact date they'll be erased. Since there is no 100% guarantee that we will be able to register a given domain, if our attempt is not successful, the money for that domain will be available as a credit within your account and will not be wasted.
