When an active domain expires, it could still be renewed by its current owner for about two months following the expiration and although it won't be active, it cannot be taken by anyone else. In case the domain is not renewed by that moment, however, it goes into a 5-day deletion period and then it's released to the general public. During the deletion period everybody can send a backorder for the domain name through an ICANN-approved registrar and the company will use its registry channel to try to register the domain on behalf of the user once it's available. Since quite a few registrars may try to acquire a certain domain and names are acquired on first-come, first-serve basis, there isn't any warranty that using such an automated service will grant you possession over it, however this is the most effective way to get an attractive domain because trying to register it yourself almost certainly means that you'll be too late.

Domain Backorder in Shared Website Hosting

Since we partner with an ICANN-authorized service provider, we provide domain backorders with all shared website hosting plans, so you will not need to sign up for another account. A separate section in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to browse all domains which will be deleted in the next days and we have added several filters that will allow you to narrow your search. You can enter any word or phrase, set the minimum and maximum number of characters, select a particular deletion date or select the extensions which should be viewable. Employing the filters will save you a lot of time and if you come across a domain that you want to have, you will be able to place an order for it with just a click. If we are unable to register the selected name, you won't lose the money you've paid and you'll be able to order other domain names with it - new registrations or backorders.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Hosting

A domain backorder service is available with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you'll be able to place an order for a selected name from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The full list of the domain names planned to be deleted will be present in an individual section and you can browse all of them or narrow your search with several custom filters that we have added which include a minimum and maximum length, a domain extension and an exact expiration date. Through a search box, you can also check if any expired domain has a specific phrase you're interested in. The funds for any failed order will not be lost and will be present as a credit inside your account because we cannot warrant that we'll be able to register every single domain name that you'd like to have via our backorder registrar channel.
