When a domain expires, there is a period of a little over 60 days when it's not active, but could still be renewed by the current user. During this time, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it is not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts five days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for this kind of domain names. In case a specific name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer the second it's deleted and accessible to the public, which gives people the option to obtain a short and memorable domain that may have been employed by somebody else up until this moment. In case the domain is quite appealing, several companies may 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 have that domain name. Nonetheless, using a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to acquire a specific domain than when you try to register it manually.
Domain Backorder in Web Hosting
Since we partner with an ICANN-authorized company, we offer domain name backorders with all web hosting packages, so you will not have to subscribe for another account. An individual section within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to browse all of the domains that will be deleted in the next days and we have added several filters that will allow you to narrow the search. You can enter any word or phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters, select an exact deletion date or select the extensions that should be displayed. Employing the filters will save you lots of time and in case you find a domain that you would like to have, you could place your order for it with only a click. If we are unable to register the selected name, you will not lose the money you've paid us and you'll be able to order other domain names with it - new registrations or backorders.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers
We've decided to add a domain name backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all semi-dedicated server accounts, so you shall not need to register with some other platform. The service will enable you to register a domain and host it in one place. All domain names planned to be erased in the coming days will be listed in the Backorder part of Hepsia and you will be able to browse them from a to z. To reduce the number, you may search by an exact phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters the domain name should contain, and select a particular extension. You'll also be able to search through domain names by the date they'll be deleted. Because there is no 100% guarantee that we'll be able to register a given domain name, if our attempt is not successful, the funds for that domain will be available as a credit inside your account and will not be wasted.
Domain Backorder in VPS Servers
We offer a backorder service with all of our VPS server solutions as we are a licensed registrar and we have our very own backorder channel.

To save time, you can browse domains which will be deleted on a specific date, select what extension they should have and how long they need to be or if they should feature only dictionary words. You'll also be able to search by an exact word or a phrase, so if a good domain name that you would like to have is on the market, you’ll be able to find it fast and easy. Unlike a lot of other companies, in case that somebody else registers the domain that you have ordered, we will credit your account and you shall be able to use the money for any other service.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers
In case you have a dedicated server from our company, you will be able to backorder a domain right from your billing Control Panel and will never need to register for another platform since we partner with an ICANN-accredited registrar. A separate section in the Control Panel is dedicated to this service and you'll find a list of all domain names scheduled to be erased there. Using the filters which we have added to save your efforts and time, you can choose to see domains from a specific date, to define the maximum and minimum length and to select an extension, thus narrowing the list you'll have to go through. In addition, you can enter a particular phrase or select to view domain names that include dictionary words and are not just a random combination of letters and numbers. It takes only a mouse click to order a domain in the list and in case we are unable to register it before somebody else does that, you will not lose your money as it will be added as a credit to your account.
