When a domain expires, there's a period of a little over two months when it is not active, but could still be renewed by its current owner. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it isn't renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts 5 days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms take backorders for such domain names. If a specific name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer immediately after it is deleted and accessible to the general public, which gives people an opportunity to obtain a short and memorable domain that may have been employed by some other person up until this moment. If the domain is quite attractive, several companies could try to register it in the same time and since this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no guarantee that a specific person will get that domain name. However, employing a backorder service will give you a better chance to end up getting a particular domain than when you attempt to register it personally.
Domain Backorder in Cloud Website Hosting
Since we work with an ICANN-licensed company, we offer domain name backorders with all cloud website hosting packages, so you won't have to sign up for an additional account. A separate section in your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel will allow you to browse all domain names that will be deleted in the following days and we have added several filters which will enable you to narrow the search. You can enter any word or phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters, select a specific deletion date or choose the extensions which should be shown. Using the filters will save you lots of time and when you come across a domain name that you'd like to have, you'll be able to place your order for it with only 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 shall be able to order other domains with it - new registrations or backorders.
