When a domain expires, there's a period of a little over 60 days when it is inactive, but could still be renewed by its current owner. During this time, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but if it isn't renewed, it enters the so-called Pending Deletion period which lasts five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar firms accept backorders for such domain names. When a particular name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer the moment it is deleted and accessible to the general public, which gives people an opportunity to obtain a short and easy to remember domain which may have been employed by somebody else until now. In case the domain is very appealing, several companies may try to register it in the same time and because this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no guarantee that a particular person will get that domain. Nevertheless, employing a backorder service will give you a lot better chance to acquire a particular domain than if you try to register it manually.
