Domain backorder is a service offered by ICANN-authorized service providers and it is the easiest way to acquire a good domain which was owned by a third party and was left to expire. When the registration period of a website has expired, the latter becomes inactive, but is not erased instantly. Instead, its owner has 2 months to renew it. If this does not happen, the domain name enters a deletion period which continues about 5 days and following that it is deleted, so anyone will be able to register it. The backorder service will allow you to place an order for such a domain name with a registrar company and they'll try to register it automatically right after it's offered. This way, you will be able to get an easy to remember and attractive domain name for your Internet site and although such domains are registered on a first -come, first-serve basis and there is no warranty that you will acquire the wanted domain name, using a computerized system will give you a significantly better chance than if you keep checking whether the domain is deleted and try to get it yourself.
