Top Referrals: random .win domain?

In Real-Time -> Overview -> Top Referrals: I am seeing a huge spike of my traffic from luckdays.win referrer. Several hundreds of 'active users' at one time. I tried to WHOIS this domain, and nothing comes back. 

 

What is the cause of this and how do I address it?

This domain does not exists.
What you see is probably spam traffic.
You have to create a filter in you view that will includes only traffic to your hostname.
Go to ADMIN > View > Filters and add filter:
Include only traffic to the hostname that contain yourdomain.com
