Domain backorder is a service offered by ICANN-authorized service providers and it's 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 site is over, the aforementioned becomes inactive, but isn't removed right away. Instead, its owner has a couple of months to renew it. If this does not happen, the domain enters a deletion period that lasts about five days and subsequently it is deleted, so anybody can register it. The backorder service will help you to make an order for such a domain name with a registrar company and they'll try to register it immediately as soon as it is offered. This way, you'll be able to get a short and attractive domain name for your site and although such domains are registered on a first -come, first-serve basis and there is no warranty that you'll acquire the desired domain, using a computerized system will provide you with a lot better chance than if you keep checking whether the domain is deleted and try to obtain it manually.
