What exactly is a domain backorder? How does the backorder process function?
When a domain expires, there's a period of a little over two months when it is inactive, but could still be renewed by the current user. During this time, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it isn't renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts five days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for these domain names. When a specific name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer the moment it's deleted and accessible to the public, which gives people the opportunity to obtain a short and memorable domain that may have been employed by some other person until now. In the event that the domain is quite appealing, several companies could 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 specific person will get that domain. However, using a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to acquire a particular domain than when you try to register it yourself.
Domain Backorder in Shared Website Hosting
All shared website hosting plans that we provide include a domain backorder service as standard as we partner with an ICANN-approved domain registrar. You'll be able to order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will discover a list of all domain names planned to be deleted in the following several days. Convenient filters will allow you to narrow this list, so rather than searching through thousands of names, you could search for an exact phrase, specify the extension as well as 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 click. If we obtain the domain that you want to have, it will be available inside your Control Panel without delay. In case we aren't 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 or backorders.
