When an existing domain name expires, it can still be renewed by its present owner for about 2 months after the expiration and although it will not be active, it can't be obtained by anybody else. In case the domain is not renewed by that moment, however, it goes into a 5-day deletion period and after that it is available to the public. During the deletion period everybody can submit a backorder for the domain through an ICANN-licensed registrar and the provider will use its registry channel to try to register the domain name for the user the instant it's available. Because a lot of registrars can attempt 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 ownership over it, still this is the easiest way to get an attractive domain as trying to register it manually almost certainly means that you will be far too late.
