When a domain expires, there's a period of a little over two months when it is not active, but could still be renewed by the current user. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it's not renewed, it gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms take backorders for this type of domain names. When a given name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer the second it's deleted and available to the public, which gives people the chance to obtain a short and easy to remember domain which may have been used by some other person until now. In the event that the domain is extremely appealing, a couple of companies could try to register it in the same time and since this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no guarantee that a particular person will get that domain name. However, using a backorder service will give you a better chance to end up getting a specific domain than if you attempt to register it personally.
Domain Backorder in Cloud Web Hosting
All cloud web hosting plans that we provide include a domain backorder service as a standard as our company is a partner of an ICANN-licensed registrar. You may order a domain right from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will find a list of all the domains planned to be deleted in the next few days. Useful filters will help you to narrow the list, so rather than browsing through thousands of names, you'll be able to search for a certain phrase, specify the extension and the length, or browse only domains which will be erased on a specific date. The filters will save you lots of time and placing a backorder will take you only one mouse click. If we get the domain name that you want to have, it will be available inside your Control Panel without delay. If we aren't successful, the funds for it will be available in your account and you'll be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals and / or backorders.
