    Anyone experienced this? I found a good domain, about 3k local monthly searches, and has good cpc, searched it in namecheap last july 6 and found out that the top TLD's were all available, I didnt bought it that time since i was waiting for the promotion today but now when i tried to buy them they were suddenly all registered and parked lol.

    some people gets the list of searched domains. They might have snapped it up when they saw you searching for it.

    All the time. Never reveal your domains until ready to purchase especially with a registrar .

    How then do you search available domains? Do you just type into the address bar and see what pops up?
