What precisely is a domain backorder? How exactly does the backorder process function?
When a domain expires, there's a time period of a little over 60 days when it is inactive, but can still be renewed by its current owner. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it's not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts five days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar companies take backorders for such domains. In case a particular name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer the moment it's deleted and accessible to the public, which gives people a chance to obtain 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 due to the fact that this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no guarantee that a specific person will get that domain name. Nevertheless, using a backorder service will give you a better chance to obtain a specific domain than if you attempt to register it manually.
Domain Backorder in Shared Web Hosting
You shall be able to backorder domains from your Hepsia Control Panel since we work with an ICANN-licensed registrar company and we offer the service as a part of all shared web hosting plans. That way, you shall not need a separate account and you'll be able to take care of the recently obtained domain name as well as 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. You will also be able to search just for domain names which contain dictionary words or set a phrase of your choosing. Acquiring a domain name from the list will take you just a click and in case we're unable to register the required name, the money won't be lost and you shall be able to use it for domain registrations, renewals or backorders later on.
