What exactly is a domain backorder? How does the backorder process work?
When a domain expires, there's a time period of a little over two 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 5 days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar companies accept backorders for such domains. If a specific name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer as soon as it's deleted and accessible to the public, which gives people the chance to get a short and memorable domain which may have been employed by another person up until this moment. In the event that the domain is very appealing, a number of companies may try to register it in the same time and due to the fact that this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no warranty that a particular person will have that domain name. Nonetheless, employing a backorder service will give you a much better chance to get a particular domain than if you attempt to register it manually.
Domain Backorder in Hosting
All hosting plans that we offer include a domain backorder service by default as our company is a partner of an ICANN-licensed domain registrar. You may order a domain right from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will discover a list of all the domains scheduled to be deleted in the following several days. Handy filters will help you to narrow the list, so instead of going through thousands of names, you'll be able to search for a certain phrase, specify the extension and the length, or browse only domains that will be erased on a specific date. The filters will save you a lot of time and placing a backorder will take you literally a single mouse click. If we acquire the domain that you'd like to have, it will be available in your Control Panel without delay. In case we are not successful, the money for it will be available within your account and you will be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals and / or backorders.
