When an active domain expires, it may still be renewed by its current owner for about two months after the expiration and even though it won't be active, it can't be used by anyone else. If the domain is not renewed by that point, however, it enters a 5-day deletion period and then it's available to the public. Throughout the deletion period everybody will be able to submit a backorder for the domain through an ICANN-approved domain registrar and the company will use its registry channel to try to register the domain name on behalf of the user once it is available. Because quite a few registrars could attempt to get a certain domain and names are acquired on first-come, first-serve basis, there isn't any warranty that using such an automated service will give you ownership over it, but this is the most effective way to get an appealing domain as trying to register it manually almost certainly means that you'll be far too late.

Domain Backorder in Cloud Hosting

All cloud hosting plans that we offer feature a domain backorder service by default as we partner with an ICANN-certified registrar. You'll be able to order a domain right from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will discover a list of all domains planned to be deleted in the following few days. Helpful filters will help you to narrow this list, so rather than going through thousands of names, you can search for a specific phrase, specify the extension as well as the length, or browse only domain names that will be erased on a given date. The filters will save you considerable time and placing a backorder will take you only a single mouse click. In case we acquire the domain that you would like to have, it'll be available in your Control Panel right away. In case we're not successful, the money for it will be available in your account and you will be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals or backorders.
