What exactly is a domain backorder? How exactly does the backorder process work?
When a domain name expires, there is a period of a little over eight weeks when it's not active, but can still be renewed by its current owner. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it is not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts five days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar companies take backorders for these domain names. When a particular name is backordered, the registrar will make an attempt to register it for the customer the moment it's deleted and offered to the public, which gives people the chance to acquire a short and memorable domain that may have been used by some other person up until this moment. If the domain is quite appealing, a number of companies can try to register it in the same time and due to the fact that this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no warranty that a specific person will have that domain. Nonetheless, using a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to obtain a specific domain than when you try to register it yourself.
