When a domain name expires, there's a time period of a little over eight weeks when it is inactive, but could still be renewed by the current owner. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it's not renewed, it goes into the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar companies accept backorders for such domains. In case a given name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer as soon as it is deleted and offered to the general public, which gives people the option to get a short and easy to remember domain that may have been used by somebody else until now. In case the domain is very attractive, a couple of companies may try to register it in the same time and due to the fact that this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no guarantee that a particular person will have that domain name. Nevertheless, using a backorder service will give you a much better chance to end up getting a particular domain than if you try to register it yourself.
Domain Backorder in Cloud Hosting
Since our company is a partner of an ICANN-licensed company, we offer domain backorders with all cloud hosting solutions, so you won't have to register for a different account. A separate section within your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel will enable you to browse all the domain names that will be deleted in the following days and we've added several filters that will allow you to narrow the search. You'll be able to type in any word or phrase, set the minimum and maximum number of characters, select a specific deletion date or select the extensions which should be displayed. Using the filters will save you time and efforts and if you find a domain name that you would like to have, you could place your order for it with just a mouse click. In case we are not able to register the selected name, you will not lose the money you've paid and you'll be able to order other domain names with it - new registrations or backorders.
