Domain backorder is a service offered by ICANN-licensed service providers and it is the most effective way to acquire a good domain name that was owned by some third party and was left to expire. When the registration period of a domain name is over, the latter becomes inactive, but isn't removed immediately. Instead, its owner has a few months to renew it. In case this does not happen, the domain name enters a deletion period that continues about 5 days and next it gets deleted, so anyone could register it. The backorder service enables you to place an order for such a domain name with a registrar company and they'll make an effort to register it instantly the second it is on the market. Thus, you can easily get a short and eye-catching domain for your Internet site and although such domains are registered on a first -come, first-serve basis and there's no warranty that you will acquire the desired domain name, using a computerized system gives you a significantly better chance than if you keep checking whether the domain is deleted and attempt to obtain it yourself.
