What exactly is a domain backorder? How does the backorder process function?
When a domain expires, there is a time period of a little over 60 days when it is not active, but could still be renewed by its current user. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it's not renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts 5 days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for this type of domain names. When a particular name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer the moment it is deleted and offered to the public, which gives people the opportunity to acquire a short and memorable domain which may have been employed by some other person up until this moment. If the domain is quite attractive, several companies may 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 guarantee that a specific person will have that domain. Nonetheless, employing a backorder service will give you a much better chance to obtain a specific domain than when you attempt to register it yourself.
