What precisely is a domain backorder? How does the backorder process work?
When an existing domain expires, it can still be renewed by its current owner for about eight weeks following the expiration and although it won't be active, it cannot be obtained by someone else. When the domain is not renewed by that time, however, it gets into a 5-day deletion period and then it is released to the public. During the deletion period anybody will be able to submit a backorder for the domain name through an ICANN-accredited registrar and the company will use its registry channel to try to register the domain name on behalf of the user the moment it is available. Since a lot of registrars could try to get a particular domain and names are acquired on first-come, first-serve basis, there's no guarantee that using such an automated service will grant you possession over it, yet this is the most effective way to get an appealing domain since trying to register it manually almost certainly means that you will be way too late.
Domain Backorder in Shared Hosting
All shared hosting
packages that we offer feature a domain backorder service as a standard as our company is a partner of an ICANN-approved domain registrar. You'll be able to order a domain right from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will find a list of all domain names planned to be erased in the next few days. Useful filters will enable you to narrow this list, so rather than searching through thousands of names, you will be able to search for a certain phrase, specify the extension as well as the length, or browse only domain names that will be deleted on a given date. The filters will save you considerable time and placing a backorder will take you literally one mouse click. If we acquire the domain that you would like to have, it will be available in your Control Panel quickly. In the event that we aren't successful, the money for it will be available within your account and you'll be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals and / or backorders.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers
We have decided to include a domain backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all semi-dedicated server
accounts, so you won't have to subscribe to another platform. The service will permit you to register a domain and host it from a single place. All the domain names scheduled to be erased in the coming days will be listed in the Backorder section of Hepsia and you can browse them in alphabetical order. To narrow the number, you may search by an exact phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters your domain name should contain, and select a particular extension. You'll also be able to browse domains by the exact date they will be deleted. As there is no 100% guarantee that we will be able to register a specific domain name, if our attempt is unsuccessful, the funds for that domain will be available as a credit in your account and will not be wasted.
Domain Backorder in VPS Servers
Since our company is a partner of an ICANN-certified registrar, we offer a domain backorder service for all our web hosting plans, including the VPS servers
. You shall find a full list of all domains that will be deleted in the next days inside your VPS billing Control Panel and placing an order for any of them will take you one click. Because the list is quite large, we've added several filters which will enable you to find the right domain names - choose the domain name extension and the minimum/maximum length, check the domains that will be deleted on a given date, view only domain names which include dictionary words or enter a string of characters of your choice. As backordering a domain can't guarantee that we will be able to register it, you'll still be able to use the funds from the order for different other services in case that the registration attempt is not successful.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers
In case you have a dedicated server
from our firm, you shall be able to backorder a domain name directly from your billing Control Panel and will never have to subscribe for another platform since we partner with an ICANN-licensed registrar. A section in the Control Panel is dedicated to this particular service and you will find a long list of all domain names scheduled to be deleted there. Thanks to the filters that we have added for your convenience, you will be able to choose to view domains from a particular date, to set the maximum and minimum length and to pick an extension, thus narrowing the list you shall have to browse through. In addition, you can enter a certain 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 mouse click to order a domain in the list and in case we are not able to register it before someone else does that, you won't lose the money and it will be added as a credit to your account.
