When an existing domain expires, it may still be renewed by its current owner for about 2 months after the expiration and despite the fact that it will not be active, it cannot be obtained by anyone else. If the domain is not renewed by that point, however, it enters a 5-day deletion time frame and subsequently it's released to the general public. Throughout the deletion period anybody could send a backorder for the domain name through an ICANN-licensed registrar and the service provider will use its registry channel to try to register the domain name for the user the instant it's available. Since a lot of registrars could try to obtain a particular domain and names are acquired on first-come, first-serve basis, there isn't any warranty that using such an automated service will grant you possession over it, but this is the best way to get an attractive domain name as trying to register it personally almost certainly means that you'll be way too late.
