When an existing domain name expires, it can still be renewed by its current owner for about two months following the expiration and even though it won't be active, it can't be obtained by someone else. When the domain name is not renewed by then, however, it enters a 5-day deletion time frame and subsequently it is released to the public. Throughout the deletion period everyone can submit a backorder for the domain through an ICANN-certified domain registrar and the company will use its registry channel in order to attempt to register the domain name on behalf of the user as soon as it is available. Since lots of registrars could try to get a certain domain and names are acquired on first-come, first-serve basis, there's no warranty that using such a computerized service will give you possession over it, however this is the easiest way to get an attractive domain name as trying to register it manually almost certainly means that you will be way too late.

Domain Backorder in Website Hosting

All website hosting plans that we offer come with a domain backorder service by default as we partner with an ICANN-authorized registrar. You will be able to order a domain right from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will discover a list of all domains scheduled to be erased in the next several days. Convenient filters will enable you to narrow this list, so rather than going through thousands of names, you could search for a certain phrase, specify the extension along with the length, or browse only domains which will be erased on a specific date. The filters will save you a lot of time and placing a backorder will take you literally a single mouse click. In case we obtain the domain name that you want to have, it will be available inside your Control Panel without delay. If we're not successful, the funds for it will be available within your account and you will be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals or backorders.
