When a domain expires, there's a period of a little over eight weeks when it is not active, but could still be renewed by its current owner. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it is not renewed, it gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms take backorders for this kind of domains. In case a specific name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer right after it's deleted and available to the general public, which gives people the option to get a short and easy to remember domain that may have been employed by somebody else until now. In the event that the domain is very appealing, a number of companies may try to register it in the same time and because this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no guarantee that a specific person will have that domain. However, employing a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to end up getting a specific domain than if you attempt to register it manually.
Domain Backorder in Cloud Hosting
All cloud hosting plans that we provide come with a domain backorder service as a standard as our company is a partner of an ICANN-approved domain registrar. You could order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will see a list of all domain names scheduled to be erased in the next few days. Helpful filters will help you to narrow this list, so instead of checking out thousands of names, you could search for an exact phrase, specify the extension and the length, or browse only domain names that will be deleted on a specific date. The filters will save you a considerable amount of time and placing a backorder will take you only one click. In case we acquire the domain that you would like to have, it'll be available in your Control Panel quickly. In case we're not successful, the funds for it will be available inside your account and you shall be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals and / or backorders.
