When an existing domain expires, it can still be renewed by its present owner for about 2 months after the expiration and despite the fact that it will not be active, it can't be taken by someone else. In case the domain name is not renewed by that point, however, it goes into a 5-day deletion time frame and after that it's released to the general public. During the deletion period anybody can submit a backorder for the domain through an ICANN-certified registrar and the company will use its registry channel in order to try to register the domain name on behalf of the user once it is available. As numerous registrars can try to obtain a given domain and names are acquired on first-come, first-serve basis, there is no warranty that employing such an automated service will give you ownership over it, yet this is the most efficient way to get an attractive domain name as trying to register it personally almost certainly means that you will be far too late.

Domain Backorder in Hosting

All hosting packages that we provide feature a domain backorder service by default as our company is a partner of an ICANN-authorized 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 allow you to narrow the list, so instead of checking out thousands of names, you could search for a particular phrase, specify the extension and the length, or browse only domains that will be deleted on a given date. The filters will save you a considerable amount of time and placing a backorder will take you only a single mouse click. If we acquire the domain name that you wish to have, it'll be available in your Control Panel right away. In the event that we are not successful, the money for it will be available inside your account and you shall be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals and / or backorders.
