Domain backorder is a service offered by ICANN-certified providers and it is the easiest way to acquire a good domain name 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, but isn't deleted immediately. Instead, its owner has 2 months to renew it. In case this does not happen, the domain name enters a deletion period that continues about 5 days and then it is deleted, so anybody could register it. The backorder service will allow you to place an order for such a domain name with a registrar company and they will try to register it instantly right after it's available. That way, you will be able to get a short and eye-catching domain for your site and although such domains are registered on a first -come, first-serve basis and there is no guarantee that you will obtain the desired domain name, using a computerized system provides you with a much better chance than if you keep checking if the domain is deleted and attempt to acquire it personally.
