Re: Top Level Domain Finder Tools

  • From: Stephen J. Wilcox

the collisions dont seem to be being avoided

Checking (AlterNIC) nameserver ny.alternic.org for .SHOP 
SHOP. in ns BERK.SERV.NIC.INFO 

Checking (NEWNET) nameserver ns0.newdotnet.net for .SHOP 
SHOP. in ns UDNS1.NEWDOTNET.NET 
 
Checking (NS) nameserver ns.autono.net for .SHOP 
SHOP. in ns ALLADIN.DDS.NL 


See - you open it up and it all falls apart

These "finder tools" are bobbins, they just query against a botched
together list of servers. 

.. also ORSC sounds techie friendly - it has the word open in so it must
be good - but c'mon theres no difference between it and new.net or
whoever? having said that maybe it would be better than icann.. only
problem is who has to give them the authority and make everyone abide by
it?
