What does backorder mean?

Im looking at a domain name and this site, godaddy, as opposed to others, tells me the domain name is on back-order.
What does that mean?
And since the goddady site will allow me to order a back-ordered domain name, if i do, how do i know when it is available to me?
And if its not available to me within a couple weeks, do i get a refund?

I just submitted a ticket to GoDaddy, am wondering if the person trying to get their domain back did. I did the backorder thinking I would be able to get my domain back. I had critical illness in my family plus my computer took a dive & I was without for weeks which ended up in my domain being in jeopardy. It was difficult to worry about going elsewhere for computer use with my mother nearly dying. Anyway, I have had my domain name for years. I have my site to hopefully give glory to God & help others see the truth of God and Jesus Christ. It is for no monetary gain of my own I have it. I am really taken aback tonight, as I viewed the who is, someone else’s name shows having my domain name. I thought it up and created a site to go with it. It means a lot to me. My domain is christiansexbygod.com My story is pretty much what I just read here. I got an email saying capture unsuccessful, whatever that means and then a cancellation of my domain for me, tho the day I did the order it was still in my GoDaddy account. or something and then another email showing status with my domain name gone from my account. The last email which was from this morning shows The domain status has been changed:
I am really beside myself thinking someone has my domain. As I stated in my support email, I have not liked talking on the phone in the past to help at GoDaddy. They seem impatient and in a hurry if you don’t understand something. I would rather have called them initially and am sorry now I did not, but I anticipated how it had gone before. I have looked at some of the links for the previous person and still don’t really understand this whole thing.
