When an active domain name expires, it could still be renewed by the present owner for about two months after the expiration and although it will not be active, it cannot be obtained by anybody else. In case the domain is not renewed by that time, however, it goes into a 5-day deletion period and subsequently it's available to the general public. During the deletion period anyone can submit a backorder for the domain through an ICANN-certified domain registrar and the company will use its registry channel to attempt to register the domain on behalf of the user once it is available. As a lot of registrars could try to get a certain domain and names are acquired on first-come, first-serve basis, there isn't any warranty that employing such a computerized service will give you ownership over it, still this is the most effective way to get an attractive domain name as trying to register it personally almost certainly means that you will be too late.

Domain Backorder in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting packages that we provide come with a domain backorder service as standard as our company is a partner of an ICANN-licensed domain registrar. You could order a domain right from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will see a list of all the domain names planned to be deleted in the following few days. Handy filters will allow you to narrow the list, so rather than checking out thousands of names, you'll be able to search for an exact phrase, specify the extension along with the length, or browse only domain names that will be erased on a specific date. The filters will save you a lot of time and placing a backorder will take you just one click. In case we obtain the domain name that you wish to have, it'll be available inside your Control Panel right away. In case we are not successful, the money for it will be available within your account and you shall be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals and / or backorders.
