When a domain expires, there is a period of a little over 2 months when it's inactive, but could 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 goes into the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts five days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms take backorders for these domain names. When a given name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer the moment it is deleted and offered to the general public, which gives people a chance to acquire a short and memorable domain which may have been used by some other person up to now. In case the domain is really attractive, a number of companies can 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 particular person will have that domain. However, employing a backorder service will give you a much better chance to end up getting a particular domain than when you try to register it personally.

Domain Backorder in Cloud Hosting

All cloud hosting packages that we offer feature a domain backorder service as a standard as we're an ICANN-certified registrar. You could order a domain right from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will see a list of all domains planned to be erased in the following few days. Helpful filters will allow you to narrow this list, so instead of checking out thousands of names, you will be able to search for an exact phrase, specify the extension as well as the length, or browse only domains which will be deleted on a particular date. The filters will save you considerable time and placing a backorder will take you just one mouse click. If we get the domain that you would like to have, it'll be available in your Control Panel quickly. If we aren't successful, the money for it will be available in your account and you'll be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals and / or backorders.
