When a domain name expires, there's a time period of a little over 60 days when it is inactive, but can still be renewed by its current user. During this time, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it's not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar companies accept backorders for this kind of domains. In case a particular name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer as soon as it's deleted and accessible to the general public, which gives people an opportunity to get a short and easy to remember domain that may have been used by someone else until now. In the event that the domain is very 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 is no warranty that a particular person will have that domain. However, using a backorder service will give you a better chance to obtain a particular domain than if you try to register it manually.

Domain Backorder in Hosting

You will be able to backorder domains from your Hepsia Control Panel since we partner with an ICANN-authorized registrar company and we provide the service as a part of all hosting packages. This way, you shall not need a separate account and you shall be able to take care of the recently purchased domain name and the hosting space for it in a single place. The service has its own section in the Control Panel where you will discover all domains due to be erased in the next five days. For a more precise search, you will be able to use several filters that we have added - minimum and maximum number of characters, domain extension, exact deletion date, etc. In addition, you'll be able to search exclusively for domain names which include dictionary words or set a phrase of your choice. Acquiring a domain name from the list will take you only a mouse click and in the event that we are not able to register the desired name, your money won't be lost and you will be able to use it for domain registrations, renewals or backorders in the future.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers

We have decided to add a domain name backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all semi-dedicated server accounts, so you shall not need to register with a separate platform. This service will allow you to register a domain and host it in one place. All domain names scheduled to be erased in the coming days will be listed in the Backorder section of Hepsia and you'll be able to browse them from a to z. To reduce the number, you could search by an exact phrase, determine the minimum and maximum number of characters the domain should contain, and select a particular extension. You will also be able to search through domain names by the date they will be deleted. Because there is no 100% guarantee that we'll be able to register a particular domain name, in case our attempt is not successful, the funds for that domain will be available as a credit within your account and will not be wasted.

Domain Backorder in VPS Servers

We provide a backorder service with all of our VPS server packages since we are an authorized registrar and we have our own backorder channel. You'll be able to use this service from your billing Control Panel where you'll find all domain names that will be on the market in the next few days. To save efforts and time, you can browse domains that will be deleted on a given date, pick what extension they should have and how long they must be or whether they should include only dictionary words. You can also search by a specific word or a phrase, so if a proper domain that you would like to have is on the market, you shall be able to find it fast and easy. Unlike a lot of other companies, in case that somebody else registers the domain name which you have ordered, we will credit your account and you'll be able to use this money for any other service.

Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers

As we are an authorized registrar, we've included a backorder section in the billing Control Panel of our dedicated servers, so that you can take advantage of this service fast and easy without opening some other account. When you go to this section, you will see a full list of the domain names that will be available in the following 5 days. Using the filters we have added, you can browse domain names that will be erased on a specific date, and pick their extension and length. Furthermore, you can browse by an exact phrase or use a dictionary option which will filter all domain names which are just random groups of letters and numbers. It takes just a click to make a backorder for any domain name from the list and if we register it successfully, you shall be able to control it immediately from the exact same Control Panel. In case someone else takes the wanted domain, the money will be added as credit to your account and will not be wasted.
