I was looking some domains, and I got the result that a domain is already taken. I went to look on https://whois.icann.org and when I enter a domain I got this response:
The requested second-level domain was not found in the Registry or Registrar’s WHOIS Server.
How is this possible?
One of the rare whois databases that find this domain is http://www.whois.com/whois/
I thought that is like this, maybe because was registered at this moment, but no. It was regestered in 2008.
Why some whois databases cannnot find a domains and some do?
I also saw that whois.com displays the status as "Status: pendingDelete" for this particular domain. What does this mean? Is this the reason why some whois cannot find this domain?
If this is true, why I can't buy this domain? If a whois database cannt find the domain, then there is a way do but this particular domain, or?
Here is the record of one of whois that finds this domain: http://www.whois.com/whois/

Other whois (I tried 4-5 of them e.g. https://whois.icann.org ) does not find it in their records? Why? If there is not why I can't buy it?
