When an active domain name expires, it may still be renewed by its present owner for about 60 days following the expiration and even though it will not be active, it can't be obtained by anybody else. In case the domain is not renewed by that point, however, it enters a 5-day deletion time frame and then it is released to the public. Throughout the deletion period anyone can submit a backorder for the domain through an ICANN-certified registrar and the company will use its registry channel in order to make an effort to register the domain for the user the moment it's available. Since a lot of registrars may try to get a given domain and names are acquired on first-come, first-serve basis, there's no guarantee that employing such an automated service will grant you ownership over it, but this is the most efficient 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 Shared Web Hosting

All shared web hosting packages that we offer come with a domain backorder service by default as we partner with an ICANN-licensed domain registrar. You can order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will see a list of all domain names scheduled to be erased in the next few days. Convenient filters will enable you to narrow this list, so instead of searching through thousands of names, you can search for a certain phrase, specify the extension and the length, or browse only domain names which will be deleted on a specific date. The filters will save you a lot of time and placing a backorder will take you just a single mouse click. In case we get the domain name that you wish to have, it'll be available inside your Control Panel without delay. If we're not successful, the money for it will be available inside your account and you'll be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals or backorders.
