When a domain expires, there's a period of a little over two months when it is not active, but may still be renewed by its current owner. During this time, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it is not renewed, it goes into the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts five days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for this kind of domain names. If a specific name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer right after it's deleted and offered to the public, which gives people a chance to obtain a short and memorable domain which may have been used by somebody else up to now. If the domain is really appealing, several companies can try to register it in the same time and because this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no guarantee that a specific person will get that domain name. Nevertheless, employing a backorder service will give you a much better chance to acquire a specific domain than when you try to register it personally.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers

We've decided to add a domain name backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel which is available with all semi-dedicated server accounts, so you will not need to sign up for a different platform. The service will permit you to register a domain and host it in a single place. All the domains scheduled to be deleted in the coming days will be placed in the Backorder section of Hepsia and you will be able to browse them in alphabetical order. To narrow the number, you will be able to search by a particular phrase, determine the minimum and maximum number of characters your domain name should contain, and select a particular extension. You will also be able to search through domain names by the date they will be erased. Since there is no 100% guarantee that we'll be able to register a specific domain name, in case our attempt is not successful, the funds for that domain will be available as a credit inside your account and will not be wasted.
