    i believe they own the domain "com-about.com" and "mydomain" is the subdomain.

    Because they own the domain www.com-about.com.
    When you own a domain, you can create subdomains like this:
    www3.com-about.com
    Blog.com-about.com


    Or, as in your case:
    YOURDOMAIN.com-about.com


    So it is NOT your domain. But it could be a smart way to get traffic from searches on a specific domain name.
