I mean ofcourse.
Comment 4 Ilhan Y. 2011-05-05 08:09:46 PDT
It seems that is not a domain. It seems that the domain is (with www part) Like where www is the registered one.
Also did not returned any information for (I mean no redirection)

Can someone recheck the whois of and then ?

Shortly, it seems that www is not a subdomain.

Hi again,

I think the erroneous behavior was on my side. I filed the previous request 606922 thinking that is a domain name. I actually confirmed this also by contacting However, now it seems that, is only a TLD and is actually a domain name (OMG!!)

It can be checked at this address: 

I will also update the related wikipedia entry (if not already done).

What difference in behavior am I supposed to see here, post-checkin?
Comment 15 Gervase Markham [:gerv] 2011-06-17 02:26:36 PDT
Al: visit in Firefox 6. Before change, "" should be highlighted in the URL bar. After change, "" should be highlighted.

Comment 16 Al Billings [:abillings] 2011-06-17 10:14:48 PDT
I'm looking at this in 3.6.18. :-) I'm doing branch verifications.
