Even before one of them replied I noticed the domain has been registered

on the same day I sent the email.

What probably happened is the service you used to check the domain was
available registered that same domain based on the information you
entered. It's illegal but pretty common. Good luck fighting that. The
morale of the story is whenever you want to look up a domain name with
the intent of registering it, only do so using a reputable service
that will not register it before you.


I did not used any service to check a Kicad domain, but just tried some well known domains names.
and here is what I found:
kicad.org is also registered and curiously looks like kicad.info.
Curious and annoying.

an other site is kicad.eu and kicad.dk (seems the same) but have no link with kicad.
