When an existing domain expires, it can still be renewed by its present owner for about 60 days following the expiration and even though it will not be active, it cannot be taken by someone else. When the domain name is not renewed by that moment, however, it gets into a 5-day deletion period and subsequently it's available to the public. During the deletion period anyone could submit a backorder for the domain name through an ICANN-licensed domain registrar and the provider will use its registry channel to attempt to register the domain name for the user the moment it is available. As a lot of registrars could attempt to acquire a certain domain and names are acquired on first-come, first-serve basis, there's no guarantee that employing such an automated service will grant you possession over it, however this is the best way to get an appealing domain as trying to register it personally almost certainly means that you will be too late.

Domain Backorder in Shared Hosting

All shared hosting plans that we provide include a domain backorder service as a standard as our company is a partner of an ICANN-approved registrar. You could order a domain right from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will find a list of all the domain names scheduled to be deleted in the next several days. Helpful filters will allow you to narrow the list, so rather than going through thousands of names, you could search for a certain phrase, specify the extension as well as the length, or browse only domain names that will be deleted on a given date. The filters will save you considerable time and placing a backorder will take you only a single click. In case we get the domain name that you want to have, it will be available in your Control Panel without delay. If we are not successful, the funds for it will be available within your account and you shall be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals or backorders.
