When a domain name expires, there is a time period of a little over two months when it's not active, but may still be renewed by the current owner. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it's not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar companies take backorders for this kind of domains. If a specific name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer the instant it's deleted and available to the general public, which gives people the option to obtain a short and easy to remember domain that may have been employed by someone else until now. In case the domain is very appealing, a number of companies can try to register it in the same time and due to the fact that this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no warranty that a particular person will have that domain name. Nevertheless, using a backorder service will give you a much better chance to obtain a particular domain than when you try to register it manually.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Being an accredited registrar, we provide domain backorders with each and every semi-dedicated hosting account and you could take advantage of this service via your Hepsia Control Panel, not through some other platform. All domains that will be erased soon will be listed in a separate section and you will be able to search through all of them or set a custom filter to decrease the number of domains you will need to go through. You will be able to pick the specific deletion date, the domain extension, the minimum and maximum number of characters, or search by a specific phrase or a dictionary word. Using filters will save you a lot of efforts and will allow you to search for a good domain fast and easy. In case we don't register the name you want to have, you will still be able to use the money for it for some other service.
