When an existing domain name expires, it can still be renewed by the current owner for about 60 days following the expiration and even though it will not be active, it can't be used by anyone else. In case the domain name is not renewed by then, however, it goes into a 5-day deletion period and then it is available to the public. During the deletion period anybody can send a backorder for the domain name through an ICANN-licensed domain registrar and the company will use its registry channel to attempt to register the domain for the user once it's available. As quite a few registrars could attempt to acquire a given domain and names are acquired on first-come, first-serve basis, there isn't any warranty that using such a computerized service will give you ownership over it, still this is the most effective way to get an attractive domain name because trying to register it manually almost certainly means that you will be too late.
Domain Backorder in Shared Hosting
As we work with an ICANN-accredited service provider, we offer domain backorders with all shared hosting
plans, so you will not have to subscribe for an additional account. A separate section within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to browse all domain names which will be deleted in the following days and we have added several filters that will allow you to narrow the search. You could input any word or phrase, set the minimum and maximum number of characters, select a specific deletion date or choose the extensions that should be viewable. Employing the filters will save you a lot of time and when you find a domain name that you'd like to have, you'll be able to place your order for it with only a click. In case we're unable to register the selected name, you will not lose the money you have paid us and you shall be able to order other domains with it - new registrations or backorders.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account from our company, you will not have to open an individual account so as to backorder a domain due to the fact that we provide this service within the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. A full list of all domains due to be erased will be readily available and you'll be able to purchase any domain name with just a single mouse click. Employing the filters for an exact deletion date, domain length and top-level extension will help you to narrow the search and surf only domains you are interested in. In addition, you'll be able to browse domains which contain only dictionary words or a particular phrase of your choice, which can save you a lot of time because thousands of domains are erased every day. Of course, if we're not able to get the desired domain name, the funds for it will be available as credit for future orders and you will not lose it.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers

, so that you can take advantage of this service quick and easy without opening another account.

When you use the filters we have added, you can browse domain names which will be deleted on a particular date, and choose their extension and length. Furthermore, you can browse by a specific phrase or use a dictionary option which will filter all domain names that are just random groups of letters and numbers. It takes just a click to place a backorder for any domain from the list and if we register it successfully, you will be able to manage it right away from the exact same Control Panel. In case somebody else takes the desired domain, the money will be added as credit to your account and won't be lost.
