Angry Whats up with Domain Back Order? Legal? Blackmail?

So I own a webdomain. It will expire in 4 months. However, business is going pretty well, so im going to renew the domain and register for a business name.

Unfortunately, someone contacted me and told me he back ordered my domain name and tried to blackmail me to pay him two thousand for it.

First of all, can he really back order my domain before my term is up? How does it really work.

If he did really back order my domain name, is there any other way i can get it back without paying him 2k?

This is just fcked up.

I would recommend you contact your current domain name registrar and try to solve this problem with help of him.

I do not think this is really possible to do all this. If that would, everyone would do the same and everyday people would loose domains daily.

But still, You need to learn something about the rights of owning aтв ordering a domain if there are any, and search for the possibility for doing the same as the blackmailer, in order to know if and how it is possible.

Also contact registrar and ask about the situation.

A dit strange for me because you have rights for the domain name for 30 days after expiration date
