    I think he means backlinks. In ahrefs referring domains are domains that have links to your site.

    So if the number of referring domains has dropped, this means you've lost backlinks.

    Smurfmeister is right. Referring domains has to do with backlinks, but more specifically it is a count of the domains that the backlinks are coming from and not a count of the individual backlinks. For example if you have a 3 guest posts from one particular blog, each with a link to your money site you then have 3 backlinks but 1 referring domain. OPs links have either been removed from that domain or they have perhaps been changed to nofollow.
