When an existing domain expires, it can still be renewed by the current owner for about two months after the expiration and although it won't be active, it cannot be used by someone else. When the domain name is not renewed by that time, however, it enters a 5-day deletion period and subsequently it's available to the public. Throughout the deletion period anybody will be able to submit a backorder for the domain name through an ICANN-approved registrar and the service provider will use its registry channel in order to attempt to register the domain name for the user the moment it is available. Since lots of registrars can attempt to get a certain domain and names are acquired on first-come, first-serve basis, there's no warranty that using such an automated service will grant you possession over it, but this is the easiest way to get an appealing domain name as trying to register it yourself almost certainly means that you'll be far too late.
Domain Backorder in Website Hosting
All website hosting
packages that we offer feature a domain backorder service as a standard as our company is a partner of an ICANN-licensed registrar. You'll be able to order a domain right from your Hepsia Control Panel where you will discover a list of all the domains planned to be deleted in the following few days. Useful filters will enable you to narrow this list, so rather than going through thousands of names, you will be able to search for an exact phrase, specify the extension along with the length, or browse only domains which will be deleted on a particular date. The filters will save you a considerable amount of time and placing a backorder will take you just a single mouse click. In case we obtain the domain name that you want to have, it will be available in your Control Panel instantly. In case we're not successful, the money for it will be available in your account and you shall be able to use it for other domains - new registrations, renewals and / or backorders.
