Domain backorder is a service offered by ICANN-licensed service providers and it's the easiest way to get a good domain that was owned by a third party and was left to expire. When the registration period of a domain name is over, the aforementioned becomes inactive, however it is not removed immediately. Instead, its owner has 2 months to renew it. If this doesn't happen, the domain name enters a deletion period that continues about 5 days and following that it is deleted, so everyone will be able to register it. The backorder service enables you to place an order for such a domain with a registrar company and they will attempt to register it automatically as soon as it is available. This way, you will be able to get a brief and appealing domain for your website and although such domains are registered on a first -come, first-serve basis and there isn't any guarantee that you'll obtain the wanted domain, using an automated system will give you a much better chance than if you keep checking if the domain is deleted and attempt to acquire it manually.
