When a domain expires, there is a period of a little over 2 months when it is not active, but can still be renewed by its current owner. During this time, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it isn't renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts five days. This is when ICANN-accredited registrar companies accept backorders for this type of domain names. If a given name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer immediately after it is deleted and offered to the public, which gives people a chance to get a short and memorable domain which may have been used by somebody else until now. In the event that the domain is extremely appealing, several companies can try to register it in the same time and because this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there's no guarantee that a specific person will have that domain name. Nevertheless, using a backorder service will give you a much better chance to end up getting a specific domain than if you try to register it manually.

You may also enter a given phrase or select to view domain names which include dictionary words and are not only a random combination of letters and numbers. It takes only a mouse click to order a domain in the list and if we are unable to register it before someone else does that, you will not lose the money as it will be added as a credit to your account.
