Any one noticed the Quality of .net domains dropping these days. .net was supposedly the second best option after .com, ofcourse looks like with time its lost the charm. We used to learn a general preference hierarchy around 20 years back - .com, .net, .org - but ofcourse this is no longer the case today with many many more TLDs entrying the scenario and a stronger aftermarket developed for the .com. Here are some of the recent .net drops I noticed at GoDomaining.com: Refers.net (19 years old domain name!) dropped today, August 16, 2019. Prayed.net dropped last week. Few others available recently include: inhibitions.net dnanetwork.net transparencies.net (19 years old!) betrayer.net (11 years old) entertains.net (15 years old) capitalassets.net bounding.net dailyservice.net videocatalog.net P.S. I complied this list from https://www.godomaining.com/available-domain-names/ which lists Available Quality domain names on a regular basis.
