Domain backorder is a service offered by ICANN-licensed providers and it's the easiest way to get a good domain name that was owned by a third party and was left to expire. When the registration period of a domain is over, the aforementioned becomes inactive, but is not removed instantly. Instead, the owner has 2 months to renew it. If this does not happen, the domain enters a deletion period that lasts about 5 days and following that it is deleted, so everyone could register it. The backorder service allows you to place an order for such a domain with a registrar company and they will make an effort to register it instantly right after it is on the market. This way, you will be able to get a short and eye-catching domain name for your Internet site and although these domains are registered on a first -come, first-serve basis and there's no guarantee that you will get the wanted domain, using an automated system gives you a better chance than if you keep checking if the domain is erased and attempt to get it personally.
