When an active domain name expires, it may still be renewed by the current owner for about sixty days after the expiration and although it won't be active, it can't be used by someone else. In case the domain is not renewed by that point, however, it goes into a 5-day deletion period and then it is released to the public. During the deletion period anyone will be able to submit a backorder for the domain through an ICANN-licensed domain registrar and the provider will use its registry channel to try to register the domain name on behalf of the user the moment it's available. As numerous registrars could attempt to get a certain domain and names are acquired on first-come, first-serve basis, there is no warranty that employing such a computerized service will give you ownership over it, but this is the easiest way to get an appealing domain since trying to register it yourself almost certainly means that you will be way too late.

Domain Backorder in Hosting

All hosting packages that we offer come with a domain backorder service by default as our company is a partner of an ICANN-licensed domain registrar. You could order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will find a list of all domain names planned to be erased in the following several days. Handy filters will enable you to narrow the list, so rather than browsing through thousands of names, you can search for a certain phrase, specify the extension along with the length, or browse only domain names which will be deleted on a specific date. The filters will save you considerable time and placing a backorder will take you just one click. If we obtain the domain name that you'd like to have, it'll be available inside your Control Panel without delay. In case we're not successful, the funds for it will be available within your account and you'll be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals or backorders.
