Recently, I was online searching for domains to hand register. Eventually, I saw one that I really love but it's.xyz and I decided to go for it. Due to the network issue, I couldn't register for it immediately. When I revisited, I noticed it was no longer available and I thought that's normal. Out of curiosity, I decided to check the whois and I discovered someone had registered the name. What got me a little worried was the registration date, it was about 3 days back from the day I saw it. What could have happened? Has anyone experienced anything similar? Could there be a technical reason why this happened?
