    dns prob?

    hi JP, dont know if this is a bug, but I did a whois on antionline.com and this is what i came up with.

    [root@badconnections html]# whois antionline.com

    Whois Server Version 1.3

    Domain names in the .com, .net, and .org domains can now be registered
    with many different competing registrars. Go to http://www.internic.net
    for detailed information.

    Server Name: ANTIONLINE.COM.SHOULD.BE.DISGRACED.ORG
    IP Address: 207.174.231.213
    Registrar: REGISTER.COM, INC.
    Whois Server: whois.register.com
    Referral URL: http://www.register.com



    Server Name: ANTIONLINE.COM.IS.AT.THE.MERCY.OF.DETRIMENT.ORG
    IP Address: 216.229.2.232
    Registrar: GANDI
    Whois Server: whois.gandi.net
    Referral URL: http://www.gandi.net



    Domain Name: ANTIONLINE.COM
    Registrar: NETWORK SOLUTIONS, INC.
    Whois Server: whois.networksolutions.com
    Referral URL: http://www.networksolutions.com
    Name Server: NS.ANTIONLINE.NET
    Name Server: NS2.ANTIONLINE.NET
    Updated Date: 05-nov-2001


    >>> Last update of whois database: Sat, 27 Apr 2002 05:03:22 EDT <<<

    The Registry database contains ONLY .COM, .NET, .ORG, .EDU domains and
    Registrars.


    Found InterNIC referral to whois.register.com.


    No match for "antionline.com".

    Get your domain name at http://www.register.com

    Just means the domain is popular enough that others try to hijack the connection. Try the same lookup on microsoft.com :P There must be 1,000's of fake microsoft.com listings in the registry. If you look at the actual domain at the end of each of those listings, you'll see who is doing the hijacking.

    ie
    ANTIONLINE.COM.SHOULD.BE.DISGRACED.ORG is disgraced.org, nothing to do with antionline.com

    cheers

    Greetings:

    This isn't even hijacking. Anyone can add any prefix to their domain that they want.

    For example, I could make whitehouse.gov.antionline.com resolve to antionline.com if I wanted to.

    Since this isn't a bug, I'm closing the thread.
