    I want to buy this domain name that expires in 7 days.

    Anyone know how I can improve my chances of getting the domain? Without contacting the owner? (he will probably ask to me buy it for $XXX which I don't have.

    I also heard of a back order service, what is that? Will it improve my chances?

    If the site is important, an earn some money , Or have some domain name value, Then most probably the owner will renew, it ... If you backorder the domain....Backorder only works when the owner of website do not renew the domain.

    Suppose 2 people backorder the domain. and owner do not renew it., Then it will be go on bidding, the highest bidder will win the domain.
    If there are no one other than you who backorder that domain, Than that domain will move to you.

    Hope its clear to you
    Thanks

    And backordering with Godaddy is $60+ upfront (non refundable whether you get the domain or not), then the cost of the domain plus the brokerage fees.

    if the domain is not renewed doesnt mean that there will be bidding. There are services like godaddy which will try to catch(register) the domain for you. Some of them return your money if dont succeed.

    I ordered the back ordering service an hour ago and paid $20.

    I don't know about the auction costs.
