When an existing domain name expires, it may still be renewed by its present owner for about 2 months after the expiration and although it won't be active, it cannot be used by anybody else. If the domain is not renewed by that moment, however, it gets into a 5-day deletion time frame and then it's available to the general public. During the deletion period everyone could send a backorder for the domain through an ICANN-licensed domain registrar and the service provider will use its registry channel to attempt to register the domain on behalf of the user once it's available. Since many registrars can try to get a particular domain and names are acquired on first-come, first-serve basis, there is no guarantee that using such an automated service will grant you ownership over it, yet this is the best way to get an attractive domain name because trying to register it personally almost certainly means that you'll be way too late.
Domain Backorder in Shared Website Hosting
All shared website hosting packages that we provide come with a domain backorder service by default as we partner with an ICANN-approved registrar. You may order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will discover a list of all the domains planned to be erased in the following several days. Helpful filters will allow you to narrow the list, so instead of checking out thousands of names, you will be able to search for a specific phrase, specify the extension along with the length, or browse only domains that will be deleted on a given date. The filters will save you considerable time and placing a backorder will take you literally a single mouse click. If we get the domain that you want to have, it will be available in your Control Panel without delay. In case we are not successful, the funds for it will be available within your account and you'll be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals or backorders.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Hosting
A domain name backorder service is available with all of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions and you will be able to place an order for a specific name from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. A complete list of the domain names scheduled to be deleted will be available in an individual section and you'll be able to browse all of them or filter the search through a few custom filters that we've added such as a minimum and maximum length, a domain name extension and an exact expiration date. Through a search box, you can also check whether any expired domain contains a specific phrase you're interested in. The funds for any unsuccessful order will not be lost and will be present as a credit within your account since we cannot warrant that we'll be able to register each domain name that you'd like to have through our backorder registrar channel.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Hosting
If you have a dedicated server from our firm, you'll be able to backorder a domain name right from your billing Control Panel and will never have to subscribe for a different platform since we partner with an ICANN-certified registrar. A section in the Control Panel is focused on this particular service and you'll find a long list of all domains scheduled to be erased there. Thanks to the filters that we have added to save your efforts and time, you can choose to see domain names from a specific date, to set the maximum and minimum length and to select an extension, thus narrowing the list you will need to browse through. You may also enter a given phrase or select to view domain names that include dictionary words and are not only a random combination of letters and numbers. It takes only a click to order any domain in the list and if we are unable to register it before somebody else does that, you won't lose your money as it will be added as a credit to your account.
