When a domain expires, there's a time period of a little over eight weeks when it's not active, but could still be renewed by the current user. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it is not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for such domains. If a given name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer the moment it's 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 someone else up until this moment. If the domain is very attractive, several companies can try to register it in the same time and since this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no warranty that a particular person will have that domain. However, using a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to end up getting a specific domain than when you try to register it yourself.

Domain Backorder in Cloud Hosting

All cloud hosting packages that we provide include a domain backorder service by default as we partner with an ICANN-licensed registrar. You will be able to order a domain from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will find a list of all domains planned to be deleted in the next few days. Handy filters will help you to narrow the list, so instead of searching through thousands of names, you'll be able to search for a specific phrase, specify the extension along with the length, or browse only domain names which will be deleted on a particular date. The filters will save you considerable time and placing a backorder will take you literally a single click. In case we get the domain that you would like to have, it will be available in your Control Panel right away. In the event that we're not successful, the funds for it will be available in your account and you'll be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals or backorders.
