Domain backorder is a service provided by ICANN-certified companies and it is the most effective way to obtain a good domain name that was owned by a third party and was left to expire. When the registration period of a website has ended, the aforementioned becomes inactive, but is not removed right away. Instead, its owner has a few months to renew it. In case this doesn't happen, the domain enters a deletion period that lasts about 5 days and subsequently it is deleted, so everyone can register it. The backorder service will allow you to place an order for such a domain with a registrar company and they'll attempt to register it automatically as soon as it's on the market. Thus, you can easily get a short and attractive domain for your site and although such domains are registered on a first -come, first-serve basis and there isn't any guarantee that you will acquire the wanted domain name, using an automated system will give you a significantly better chance than if you keep checking whether the domain is erased and try to get it yourself.
