When an existing domain name expires, it can still be renewed by the current owner for about two months after the expiration and although it won't be active, it cannot be taken by anyone else. If the domain is not renewed by that time, however, it goes into a 5-day deletion period and after that it is available to the public. Throughout the deletion period everyone could submit a backorder for the domain name through an ICANN-accredited registrar and the provider will use its registry channel to try to register the domain name on behalf of the user as soon as it is available. Because numerous registrars can try to get a particular domain and names are acquired on first-come, first-serve basis, there's no warranty that using such a computerized service will give you ownership over it, still this is the most efficient way to get an attractive domain name because trying to register it personally almost certainly means that you will be way too late.

Domain Backorder in Cloud Hosting

All cloud hosting packages that we offer feature a domain backorder service as a standard as our company is a partner of an ICANN-licensed domain registrar. You will be able to order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will find a list of all domain names planned to be erased in the next several days. Convenient filters will enable you to narrow the list, so instead of browsing through thousands of names, you can search for a specific phrase, specify the extension as well as the length, or browse only domains which will be erased on a given date. The filters will save you a lot of time and placing a backorder will take you only a single click. If we get the domain name that you'd like to have, it will be available inside your Control Panel right away. 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 and / or backorders.
