What exactly is a domain backorder? How exactly does the backorder process work?
When a domain name expires, there's a time period of a little over sixty days when it's inactive, but can still be renewed by its current user. During this time period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it is not renewed, it goes into the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts 5 days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for these domains. If a particular name is backordered, the registrar will attempt to register it for the customer the instant it is deleted and offered to the public, which gives people the chance to acquire a short and easy to remember domain which may have been used by some other person up until this moment. In the event that the domain is very appealing, several companies can try to register it in the same time and since this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no warranty that a specific person will have that domain. Nevertheless, using a backorder service will give you a much better chance to acquire a particular domain than if you attempt to register it manually.
