When an active domain name expires, it can still be renewed by the present owner for about two months following the expiration and despite the fact that it won't be active, it can't be taken by someone else. If the domain name is not renewed by that moment, however, it enters a 5-day deletion time frame and after that it is released to the public. During the deletion period everyone could send a backorder for the domain name through an ICANN-certified domain registrar and the provider will use its registry channel to try to register the domain for the user immediately after it is available. Since many registrars could attempt to acquire a certain domain and names are acquired on first-come, first-serve basis, there isn't any guarantee that employing such a computerized service will grant you possession over it, but this is the easiest way to get an attractive domain name as trying to register it personally almost certainly means that you'll be far too late.
Domain Backorder in Website Hosting
Since we partner with an ICANN-accredited service provider, we offer domain backorders with all website hosting solutions, so you won't need to subscribe for another account. A separate section inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel will enable you to browse all domain names which will be deleted in the following days and we've added several filters that will enable you to narrow your search. You'll be able to input any word or phrase, specify the minimum and maximum number of characters, select a specific deletion date or pick the extensions which should be displayed. Using the filters will save you a lot of time and when you find a domain name that you'd like to have, you'll be able to place your order for it with a click. In case we're unable to register the chosen name, you won't lose the money you have paid and you shall be able to order other domains with it - new registrations or backorders.
