When a domain name expires, there's a time period of a little over 60 days when it is inactive, but may still be renewed by the current owner. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it is not renewed, it gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts 5 days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar companies take backorders for these domains. In case a specific name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer the instant it's deleted and accessible to the general public, which gives people a chance to acquire a short and memorable domain that may have been used by somebody else until now. In the event that the domain is very appealing, 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 warranty that a specific person will have that domain name. Nonetheless, employing a backorder service will give you a better chance to acquire a specific domain than if you try to register it yourself.
Domain Backorder in Shared Hosting
Since our company is a partner of an ICANN-licensed company, we offer domain backorders with all shared hosting plans, so you will not have to subscribe for an additional account. An individual section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to browse all the domain names which will be erased in the next days and we have added several filters that will enable you to narrow the search. You could enter any word or phrase, set the minimum and maximum number of characters, select an exact deletion date or choose the extensions that should be shown. Using the filters will save you efforts and time and when you discover a domain name that you want to have, you'll be able to place an order for it with just a mouse click. If we are unable to register the selected name, you will not lose the money you've paid us and you shall be able to order other domain names with it - new registrations or backorders.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will not have to open a separate account so that you can backorder a domain name since we provide this service within the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. A full list of all domains scheduled to be deleted will be available and you shall be able to buy any domain name with a single click. Using the filters for a specific deletion date, domain length and top-level extension will allow you to narrow the search and browse only domains you are truly interested in. In addition, you'll be able to browse domain names that contain only dictionary words or a certain phrase of your choice, which can save you quite a lot of time considering that many hundreds of domains are erased daily. Of course, if we are unable to get the desired domain name, the funds for it will be available as credit for future orders and you will not lose it.
Domain Backorder in VPS Servers
We offer a backorder service with all of our VPS server packages because we are a licensed registrar and we have our own backorder channel.

To save time, you can browse domains that will be erased on a specific date, select what extension they should have and how long they must be or if they should contain only dictionary words. You'll also be able to search by a particular word or a phrase, so in case a proper domain name that you would like to have is available, you shall be able to find it fast and easy. Unlike many other companies, in case that somebody else registers the domain name which you've ordered, we will credit your account and you will be able to use the money for any kind of other service.
