When a domain name expires, there's a time period of a little over 2 months when it is inactive, but could still be renewed by its current user. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it's not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts 5 days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar companies accept backorders for these domain names. If a particular name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer the second it is deleted and available to the public, which gives people an opportunity to obtain a short and easy to remember domain that may have been employed by another person up until this moment. In case the domain is very attractive, a couple of companies may 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. Nevertheless, employing a backorder service will give you a much better chance to end up getting a specific domain than if you attempt to register it manually.

In case we can register the required domain name for you, it will be listed together with any other domains which you have with us and you shall be able to control it just as easily. We offer this service at very competitive prices when compared to other registrars and if we're unable to acquire a domain for you, the cash shall be available in your account, so you can use it for other domain names or hosting services.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers
A domain backorder service is provided with all our semi-dedicated server plans and you can place an order for a particular name from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. A complete list of the domain names scheduled to be erased will be viewable in a separate section and you can browse all of them or narrow the search using several custom filters that we've added like a minimum and maximum length, a domain name extension and an exact expiration date. Through a search box, you can also check whether any expired domain contains a specific phrase you're interested in. The money for any failed order won't be lost and will be present as a credit within your account as we cannot guarantee that we'll be able to register each and every domain that you want to have via our backorder registrar channel.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Servers
Since we're an accredited registrar, we have included a backorder section in the billing Control Panel of our dedicated servers, so that you can employ this service quick and easy without having to create another account. When you go to this section, you'll see a full list of the domains that will be available in the next 5 days. When you use the filters we have added, you can browse domain names that'll be deleted on a given date, and choose their extension and length. What's more, you can search by an exact phrase or use a dictionary option that will filter all domains that are just random groups of letters and numbers. It takes only a mouse click to make a backorder for any domain name from the list and if we register it successfully, you will be able to manage it immediately from the same Control Panel. In the event that someone else takes the required domain, the funds will be added as credit to your account and won't be lost.
