When a domain name expires, there's a time period of a little over two months when it's not active, but could still be renewed by the current user. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it's not renewed, it gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar companies take backorders for this type of domains. In case a given name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer the moment it's deleted and accessible to the general public, which gives people the chance to acquire a short and easy to remember domain that may have been used by somebody else until now. In the event that the domain is really appealing, a couple of companies can 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 have that domain. Nevertheless, using a backorder service will give you a much better chance to end up getting a specific domain than if you attempt to register it yourself.

Domain Backorder in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We've decided to add a domain backorder service to the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting
accounts, so you shall not need to sign up for a different platform. The service will enable you to register a domain name and host it from a single place. All of the domains planned to be erased in the coming days will be listed in the Backorder section of Hepsia and you will be able to browse them in alphabetical order. To narrow the number, you will be able to search by a specific phrase, determine the minimum and maximum number of characters your domain name should contain, and choose a particular extension. You'll also be able to browse domain names by the exact date they will be deleted. As there is no 100% guarantee that we will be able to register a particular domain name, if our attempt is not successful, the funds for that domain name will be available as a credit inside your account and will not be lost.
Domain Backorder in VPS
The billing Control Panel of our virtual private servers
contains a domain name backorder section where you will find all of the domain names that will be erased in the following few days.

The list inside the Control Panel contains all domain names due to be deleted and you will be able to use filters and choose the deletion date, minimum and maximum length and even the extension of the domain names that will be shown. You'll also be able to narrow the list of domain names by specifying if they should consist of only dictionary words or an exact word/phrase that you pick. The money for any unsuccessful registration attempt will be deposited inside your billing account and you will be able to use it for any other domain or internet hosting service.
Domain Backorder in Dedicated Hosting
Because we're a licensed registrar, we have included a backorder section inside the billing Control Panel of our dedicated servers
, so you can take advantage of this service fast and easy without opening some other account. When you go to this section, you'll find the full list of the domains that will become available in the next 5 days. When you use the filters we have added, you can browse domain names that'll be deleted on a particular date, and choose their extension and length. In addition to that, you can search by a specific phrase or use a dictionary option that will filter all domain names that are just random groups of letters and numbers. It takes only a mouse click to make a backorder for any domain name from the list and if we register it successfully, you will be able to manage it directly from the exact same Control Panel. In case someone else takes the wanted domain, the money will be added as credit to your account and will not be wasted.
