When a domain expires, there's a period of a little over eight weeks when it is inactive, but may still be renewed by its current user. During this time, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it's not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts five days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms take backorders for this type of domain names. When a particular name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer immediately after it is deleted and accessible to the general public, which gives people an opportunity to obtain a short and easy to remember domain which may have been employed by another person until now. In case the domain is extremely attractive, a number of companies could try to register it in the same time and because this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no warranty that a particular person will get that domain. However, using a backorder service will give you a better chance to get a particular domain than if you try to register it manually.
Domain Backorder in Cloud Web Hosting
As we partner with an ICANN-certified company, we provide domain name backorders with all cloud web hosting solutions, so you won't have to register for an additional account. A separate section in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel will allow you to browse all domains that will be erased in the following days and we have added several filters which will enable you to narrow your search. You could type in any word or phrase, set the minimum and maximum number of characters, select a particular deletion date or select the extensions which should be displayed. Employing the filters will save you efforts and time and if you discover a domain that you would like to have, you'll be able to place an order for it with just a mouse click. In case we are not able to register the selected name, you will not lose the money you've paid and you'll be able to order other domain names with it - new registrations or backorders.
