When a domain expires, there's a time period of a little over 2 months when it is inactive, but can still be renewed by the current owner. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it is not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts five days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar companies take backorders for this type of domain names. In case a specific name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer as soon as it's deleted and available to the general public, which gives people the opportunity to acquire a short and easy to remember domain which may have been employed by another person up until this moment. In the event that the domain is really attractive, a number of companies may try to register it in the same time and since this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no guarantee that a particular person will get that domain name. Nonetheless, employing a backorder service will give you a better chance to obtain a particular domain than if you attempt to register it personally.
Domain Backorder in Shared Hosting

That way, you shall not need a separate account and you'll be able to take care of the recently acquired domain and the hosting space for it in a single place. The service has its own section in the Control Panel where you will discover all domains due to be erased in the next five days. For a more precise search, you will be able to use several filters that we have added - minimum and maximum amount of characters, domain extension, exact deletion date, etc. You will also be able to search just for domains that contain dictionary words or set a phrase of your choice. Purchasing a domain from the list will take you only a click and if we are unable to register the required name, your money will not be lost and you shall be able to use it for domain name registrations, renewals and / or backorders in the future.
Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Servers
Being a certified registrar, we offer domain backorders with each semi-dedicated server account and you could take advantage of this service from your Hepsia Control Panel, not through a separate platform. All domain names which will be deleted soon will be listed in an individual section and you will be able to search through all of them or set a custom filter in order to lower the number of domain names you will have to look at. You will be able to select the exact date of deletion, the domain extension, the minimum and maximum number of characters, or search by a specific phrase or a dictionary word. These filters will help you save a lot of efforts and will enable you to search for a good domain name fast and easy. If we don't register the name you'd like to have, you can still use the money for it for another service.

It takes just a mouse click to place a backorder for any domain from the list and if we register it successfully, you'll be able to control it instantly from the same Control Panel.
