When a domain expires, there is a time period of a little over two months when it's inactive, but can still be renewed by the current user. During this period, the domain cannot be taken by anybody else, but in case it's not renewed, it gets into the so-called Pending Deletion period that lasts five days. This is the time when ICANN-accredited registrar companies accept backorders for this kind of domain names. When a specific name is backordered, the registrar will try to register it for the customer immediately after it is deleted and accessible to the public, which gives people the option to obtain a short and easy to remember domain which may have been used by another person until now. In the event that the domain is extremely attractive, several companies may try to register it in the same time and since this happens on a first-come, first-serve basis, there is no guarantee that a particular person will have that domain. Nevertheless, employing a backorder service will give you a better chance to get a particular domain than if you try to register it manually.
