    dns resolution curiousity


    How can it be that the domain in this URL (pyson.org): http://www.psyon.org/archive/e-books/index.shtml does not resolve to an IP address? I tried various methods of lookup such as dig, host, nslookup and online whois searches, but all seem to indicate that the domain is not registered let alone mapped to an IP address.

    >> does not resolve to an IP address

    It resolves to 216.161.207.241. Anyway, the registrant: Donald Becker is using way too many level of CNAME which is plain stupid and technical illiterate.

    fataqui - where did you get that listing? The smart-whois servers I tried all came up blank (name-search.com even told me it was available and asked if I wanted it;\).

    ps - freebsd the guy mailed me back saying, 'Hmm... you cant get to the main pages, but can see the archive (at the address listed above). That seems really really odd.' so I guess he wasn't too sure about it.
