When an existing domain name expires, it can still be renewed by the present owner for about sixty days following the expiration and although it won't be active, it can't be taken by someone else. When the domain is not renewed by that time, however, it gets into a 5-day deletion period and after that it is released to the public. During the deletion period everyone can send a backorder for the domain through an ICANN-accredited domain registrar and the provider will use its registry channel to make an effort to register the domain on behalf of the user immediately after it is available. Since lots of registrars can attempt to acquire a given domain and names are acquired on first-come, first-serve basis, there's no guarantee that employing such a computerized service will give you ownership over it, but this is the easiest way to get an appealing domain name since trying to register it manually almost certainly means that you'll be too late.

Domain Backorder in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting plans that we offer include a domain backorder service as a standard as our company is a partner of an ICANN-authorized domain registrar. You can order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will discover a list of all domains planned to be erased in the following few days. Convenient filters will enable you to narrow the list, so instead of checking out thousands of names, you can search for a certain phrase, specify the extension as well as the length, or browse only domain names which will be erased on a specific date. The filters will save you considerable time and placing a backorder will take you literally a single click. In case we get the domain name that you would like to have, it'll be available in your Control Panel instantly. In case we are not successful, the money for it will be available inside your account and you will be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals or backorders.
